    Could you eat a horse

    Horse is consumed in many countries, even Canada and Mexico, but here in the US it is taboo. How do you feel about eating a horse. It's apparently leaner than beef and higher in omega 3s.

    I would eat a horse.

    I was daydreaming this weekend about hunting tree sloths with a baseball bat. A friend informed me they are full of parasites... too bad, they seem easy to catch.

    I've heard a long time ago that we eat more horses in the US of A that we are aware of. A lot of the fast food chain's definition of "ground beef" the typical American's. That said meat's meat. I fixed beef tongue this weekend, I'd have no compunction about eating horse if it tasted good and it wasn't someone's riding pony.

    I'll try anything twice. I'm having goat curry Friday, so horse won't be too far from that, I'd think.

    Food is food. why not?
    "I know what my body needs and what it can handle. There's no better way to achieve my goal than what im doing now. If my regimen leads to my death, be it in six days or six months...I will die fullfiled. The outcome is irrelavent so long as i steer towards my fate. If death is to be my prize, i welcome it with open arms."

    I think it might actually be illegal in the US. Seems like I was reading something along those lines a few days ago. But no, I wouldn't have a problem with it as long as it tasted ok.

    Couldn't do it. I grew up with horses. There's something special about them. They bond with people and work to please them. I couldn't eat a horse no more than I could eat a dog or cat.

    Sheer sentimentality on my part? Maybe. But the idea of eating a horse is anathema to me.

    I'd be able to eat most animals so long as I know they aren't poisonous and never met them living. It's a curiosity thing for me. I think I could eat cat or dog, so long as I never met it alive.

    There are no federal laws against it. But there are many state and local laws against it. The last slaughterhouse in the USA that killed horses for consumption (both for humans and animals) was ordered to close it's doors a few years ago (2008?)

    I second some others...I've too much affection for the beasts...just like I do dogs, cats, etc.

    Not sure if it's becoming PB, maturity, or what...but I've found a larger soft spot for animals in general the last couple of years. With that, I would only want to harm one if needed for food. Otherwise, I'm a few steps above live and let live. I'm actually turning my yard into a native certified habitat for birds, butterflies, squirrels and the occasional Peter Cottontail that may wander across.
