I'd feed it! Looks like a good pelt and some tasty steak in the making. It'll probably pull out a few tree stups and plow a couple rows in its youth. ... Problem with most people is they give them names.

This is equally as repugnant as eating a dog or cat. imo. No, no, and no.


Why?


For me, having grown up with horses, it's because I consider them to be pets and not food animals. Love horses, beautiful, intelligent, sweet animals.

Owners can get up to $700 for selling an animal to a slaughterhouse across the border. Without that option, disposing of a carcass by landfill can cost several hundred dollars. Cremation costs up to $1,000.


Yeah, you contact a rendering service. They come get the dead horse, then they use it.

An old Navy cook buddy (Coast Gaurd), same thing, of mine, had a port call in Europe. They replenished the vessel with Horse meat. The sailors didn't even know the difference.. It's funny how "civilized" humans react, when they think they know, what is comming into their pie hole. They just scarf it up!

don't know if this was said yet, I didn't read threw. Make horse meat legal and sell it real cheap so that anyone can afford it.
I wouldn't think there would be a lot of folks that want to eat it,but there are folks that could use the meat.


Agreed!

And it would end the suffering of so many horses...and people.

peace

My grandsons name everything! I try to get them to use food names, like Terriyaki, Stewie, Thanksgiving, Christmas, etc. to no avail. Sigh. It is more difficult with 'pet' names for sure. Yet, once they are processed, they all look the same...simply meat and no longer look like a cute pet.

Yes it is interesting, other cultures eat other meat, we are sometimes horrified by it, as they are too at times by us eating pork for instance.
It's all just meat..part of the food chain.
I kinda wish I could get more interested in being vegetarian but just not there yet.

Family pet horses are sometimes bought by beef slaughterhouses. Also,sometimes they don't know how to properly euthanize the horses leaving them with an agonizing death. As up mentioned the horses being sold out of the US face that there as well.

Other threads in the past on this subject discussed horses holding a special place in American culture. With that don't see a big demand fir the meat.

Best of luck with your possible choice. Transitioning is gradual,try out vegetarian foods as a start,having numerous options for meat substitutes these days.

Seeing an entry for the Preakness Steak might be a tip off.

That would be ok using very lean meat.

I make ostrich jerky.

I can see the sandwich meat labels now: Meat (mechanically separated chicken, turkey and horse), spices, preservative.

In Canada's culture as well.
Yes, maybe a gradual shift..I love meat but lately been have some moral conflict/dilemma with how our food is treated.
A few scandals lately have really bothered me.(livestock being abused..chickens, dairy cows..etc)

I would like to agree with you but I cannot.

ONCE, even once a 'beef' butcher is caught with horse?

They're done.

My point, the band has to be lifeted...for so many reasons as we're bringing up here.

Which is why I would encourage you to buy from local farmers who grow and butcher their own 'meat'.

I know my chickens are loves. My cows are loved. My goats and my pigeons and any other meat animal - ARE LOVED - and NEVER raised or dispatched without the utmost concern for their care.

I'm not saying every farm treats their animals with such care, but anything is better than a slaughterhouse and you're supporting your local farmers.

In an area without local producers? I just don't know what to say, or have any guidance on what you should do to buy your meat that's not raised in inhumane conditions.

Another thing to take into consideration? It's not just what we eat.

It's the clothes we wear, the cosmetics. The medicines. All described are sold at the expense of animals who've suffered torturous conditions. Just a thought.

peace

It's been documented by undercover investigations. See if I can find more on it in a bit.

Food for thought..so to speak


I'm sure there are local producers, and I will look into it.
