I remember back in grade school at Our Lady of Fatima's Heights Catholic School that I made a bad lunch trade one day. Roland Ghiardetti, who was Canadian I believe, offered to trade me his hamburger for a PBJ sandwich. Thats a great deal I thought. Half way through the burger he asked me if I liked the horse meat. I did up until that point. All I could think of was our crazed pet Arabian horse at my grandfather's in Pena Blanca. I haven't had any since.
But I have munched on lamb, veal, and other species and never thought twice about it. Now, I don't eat much meat anymore. I am not a vegetarian but I just don't seem to like it much. Although I will always eat some Bison. Very lean.
The fact of the matter is that so many people have abandoned horses in the last five years that they are suffering terribly. That is certainly less humane than most other alternatives.
I'll be sorry I wrote about this.
