Actually, it is.  It is quite common to have Filet de Cheval on the menu in Switzerland and it is very good.  It is a bit gamier than beef.

Interestingly, in Switzerland, they have to post what country your meat comes from.  In my experience, it is usually the USA or Mexico.

"I chuck that out for what it's worth because I think it needs a debate," she said.

Is that a meat pun?

She makes an excellent point about having horses as a food animal and that use raising their value and thus improving their treatment.  Before horse slaughter for human consumption was banned in the U.S. horses had value and the floor price for a draft horse (the kind I have and am most familiar with) was $1000 and the horses were well cared for.  Neglect and abuse cases were rare.  Since that ban passed, there is no floor price and the number of abandoned, neglected, and abused horses has skyrocketed.  So HSUS looked at what they considered to be a problem of horses being abused in transit (just as Princess Anne noted) and decided to ban horse slaughter completely rather than fix the transportation problem.   They took a once-in-a-while problem and raised it to endemic levels.

I don't know if I'd eat horse, unless I had to; horses are special, like dogs or cats.

Sure, they don't like new things and aren't always the most intelligent animals; but, if you have a lump of sugar or a carrot; you just made a friend, for life.

Why? It's just meat. Horse, pig, cow, dog, whale, sheep ... The reluctance to eat so and so animal is a purely cultural thing.

Try putting a stuffed horse on the table for Thanksgiving.

Bestiality is wrong. Besides, she wouldn't taste any better with HP.

Horse tastes so much better than a Reliant Scimitar.

I don't get this argument.  If we ate them we'd treat them better?  Go ask the cows, pigs and most of all the chickens how that working out for them.

oddly enough, yes. When they could be slaughtered for food, they had a set market value that made it worth it to treat the animal well (or at least have it humanly slaughtered if you absolutely could neither sell nor keep it.) Without that outlet, people let their horses starve to death now and cut corners on their care, which results in (arguably i suppose) worse treatment of the animals than slaughtering them.

Of course, of course

I've had it, it's delicious, I don't see what the big deal is. We're not talking Cantonese or even Cajun levels of weirdness. People should be more open to expanding their horizons.

Yep. Without the option of slaughter, which will get the owner a few bucks, the options for an old animal generally are letting the horse wander around, without care, and foraging for food, or having it put down. Leaving the horse to its own devices costs nothing, putting it down can cost hundreds of dollars.

And horse meat is tasty. Similar to bison.

Or a beer.

Dad used to go out to the main gate to the back field and share a case of that generic BEER they used to sell at the U-Mark-It every Friday with our old draft horse.  He knew it probably wasn't good for the horse, but Clyde was almost 20 at the time and dad thought he had earned it.

yeah, its not even like you can kill it yourself, like you could do with a dog or a cat if you were desperate.

I mean you can. It's just the disposal part that's kind of hard. Well it's hard unless you have, say, a bunch of hungry pigs.

right, its not the sort of thing you can easily bury in the back yard and stick a little cross over it, unless you happen own an excavating business

best bit is that horses can work on your farm for 20 years before you slaughter them, and the quality of the meat is just as good as when they're 2 years.

/slow-cooked horse chilli is frakin superb.

Well known horse rancher talks up eating horse meat to drive up their value on the human consumable meat market? Sounds typically American to me. Good show wot..

I've eaten dog tartar and grilled tarantula. Both of which are nasty, btw. Spiders taste like lobster in rancid butter. So I guess I'd better be okay with horse chili. Anyone know what their methane output and yield per acre is compared to cows? I'm too lazy to Google it.

I don't eat horse either. We'd have to be talkin' bout one charmin' muthafarkin' horse, he'd have to be ten times as charmin' as that Mr. Ed, know what I'm sayin'?
 
2013-11-15 07:36:31 PM
Also, I made the yield per acre thing up. What I mean is, how much grass or grain or whatever it takes to make a pound of meat.
