Lol'd at headline.

People here in Oklahoma have been all up in arms about a horse slaughter bill that passed not very long ago. Why get your panties in a twist about horse slaughter, when the same is done for cattle, pigs and other livestock?

It's something I fail to understand about the whole debate. Besides, it's not as if horses have never been used for food before, so why biatch?

I think it's because horses have always been seen more as a companion than a food source, as well as a valuable asset that took time to train, and more time for horse and final owner to get adjusted to each other.  Livestock is a commodity that gets replaced, but if you were reduced to eating your horse, you were pretty much a failure.

Gotcha. I was thinking it had something to do with them being companion animals, but most of the folks I know around here use them for work purposes only (draft and ranching).

A friend of my fiance's just unloaded all of his horses (used for herding cattle) because they were getting too expensive for him to care for and maintain. Switched to using three border collies instead.

/most of our rancher friends use ATVs to herd their cattle now

My dad would use his horse for work purposes only, but he still got on with it like it was a companion.  Same with his dogs.  They work hard, but they're still companions.  And the degree of time and training put in to all of them was mind-boggling.

One day his new (had to replace the one hit by lightning) horse got a little excited to be out in the pasture when dad was trying to round up cattle.  Gave a little buck, the saddle strap broke, and dad hits the ground hard.

Followed by the saddle landing on him a moment later.

Then the dogs (Australian Shepherds) crowd around him and start playing.

He looked at them and said "Kill the horse."

Last I saw before they disappeared into a small valley, there was one dog hanging off the horse's tail, one snapping at his heels, and the horse was running like hell for home.

Dad got an ATV a month later.

Why was it the horses fault the strap broke?

Australian Shepherds are crazy crazy dogs. They can herd like no other, but most of the ones I've been around seemed to lack a "Not herding" button.

My grandpa used border collies to round up his cattle, then made the switch to using old pickup trucks driven by yours truly and her cousins to herd.

"Learning experience" is what he called it. We were approximately 13, 12 and 15 at the time, so we called it "time to try perfecting donuts."

I really don't understand why some get outraged at the idea of slaughtering horses for their meat while at the same time, being OK woth beef, pork and poultry

Its not the slaughter of horses that bothers me per se, its more the treatment of the horses before they get to the slaughter.  The stories I've heard.....
and then I imagine my own horses in that situation and the fear and pain they would feel way before they are even slaughtered.....

ugh I can't handle it.
