This text is now purple: stuhayes2010: Horses are an invasive species. Pure n simple. Treat them like kutzoo.Horses are native to North America.
naughtyrev: If people in this country would just get over their "but I wanted a pony when I was a kid!" attitude and start eating horse, this wouldn't be a problem.
gadian: gnosis301: gadian: You don't eat your work animals.Wrong.If you eat them, they can't work for you anymore. I can't eat my horse if I had to use it as transportation or to pull a plow. Same with ox. Eat your sheep, no wool. Eat your cow, no milk. Societies evolved these taboos partly out of necessity because stupid people would eat their work animals. It depends if you define horse as "work" or "food".The dietary restricted animals cow / pig etc. evolved because it took too many resource to fatten the animal up and starving people needed the grain etc. more. Solution? Outlaw consumption of the animal.
Kimothy: My personal dislike for these two women doesn't help, but I'm of the opinion that they should be rounded up and sold to whomever wants to slaughter them and sell the parts off.
Kahabut: No, but I learned at a very young age that horses are evil farkers, along with most other farm animals. Dangerous at both ends and crafty in the middle.I've never walked behind a horse in my life, and I rarely go near the front either (anymore). Seen one too many people seriously injured by a pissed off horse. Never did understand the attitude of the humans that were trying to get the horse to do something. It's bigger than you, and not happy about what you are doing, you might want to reconsider
phenn: Kahabut: Headso: Kahabut: It kinda makes you wonder why a horse costs so farking much to buy. I guess it's like puppies you get from a breeder. Pure greed.you can get a horse for free pretty easy but it will probably not be good for riding, that's when they start costing money.Actually, I knew that. My aunt has several rescue horses. I helped rehabilitate a couple of them. Have a few scars to prove it./some of those farkers still had teeth.Ever get a nice kick to the middle of the back? Fun times.
simplicimus: Where are the predators in this region? Non-human?

Horse meat is supposedly very tasty. The French eat it, and I think that their judgement should be trusted in all matters culinary.I'm curious what the issue is with eating horse meat? Wiki didn't give me a good understanding, just explaining its taboo, and even illegal in some places. Is it merely because we consider them "pets"?
