I’ve eaten it a bunch of times. Not bad but not exceptional, either.

Some good recipes there, no matter where the meat came from.

Have you ever eaten/seen horse meat? I was served some meat at a relatives house in New Mexico that they called beef but it didn’t look like any beef I have ever seen. I went to the meat market with the relative when he bought it. The meat was very very dark. I called it elk but it was even darker than elk. It tasted OK, a little strong as I recall.

Absolutely not!

There are plenty of other “meat” animals — cows, chickens, pigs, goats, sheep, etc. along with most wild game.

Horses, dogs and cats are not meat animals — they are partners and loyal companions of humans. We have a covenant with them.

I’ve often derided vegetarians; but, if there were no alternatives to eating the flesh of our animal companions, I’d be a vegetarian.

True story: I was in Paris and didn't speak much French and walked into a restaurant where no one spoke English. I looked over at next table and saw a hamburger & fries on my neighbor's plate and signaled to my waiter indicating that was my choice. He then pointed to the menu which read, "Steak haché"

I said, "Yes, steak!"

Satisfied that I had broken the language barrier and getting something to eat I would be familiar with, I was really looking forward to eating my meat and potatoes.

When I was served dinner, I could hardly wait to bite into my sizzling sirloin sandwich.

After the first bite,I thought it tasted a little gamey and kind of tough. I leaned over to my dining neighbor with a quizical glance and he said with a big grin, "Oui Oui - cheval et pommes de terre1!Horse and potatoes!"

The next day, I bought a French & English translation guide book.

Looks like Armies fed on them when there was no other meat around. I know the Germans did. Why be surprised over it, in other areas of the world they eat dogs and cats. If its red meat, its eaten somewhere.

Going through a village in Vietnam I noticed what I thought were deer hind quarters hanging. I casually mentioned that they have small deer here. My buddy said that those were dog hind quarters.

Could have been elk. Venison is darker than beef.

Ostrich is a LOT like beef as well. Someone could eat that and not know it was not beef.

The Apache did it all the time. They rode their horses into the ground, ate them, and stole more. Just one of the many reasons they were one of the World’s most effective guerrilla forces.

We raised Quarter Horses for 30 years. I don’t think I could carve one up and eat it, but in the 80’s we sold some at auction, knowing they went to slaughter. We now have an old brood mare, and I’d rather auction her than call the meat wagon or bury her. Recycling meat into dogfood doesn’t bother me. Walmart takes all their outdated deli food and turns it into dogfood, why can’t we process our nags and feed our dogs.

There are plenty of alternatives to meat protein. In fact it can be argued that it is a much better lifestyle.

Me? I would eat it. I don’t really find a difference. I also would eat a dog or a cat if the opportunity arises.

Have you ever killed a “meat” animal? Up close, not with a gun. I have slaughtered animals by cutting the throat with a large knife. If you can’t do it you certainly should not employ others to do your dirty work.

Poor polling choices. I have never eaten it but I would certainly give it a go.

Like the old saying goes, “if God didn’t want us to eat animals he would not have made them out of meat”.

Does the average, non-horse-owning or non-horse-caring-for person in today’s society have ANY clue as to what drugs horses are given to stay sound, what they are vaccinated with, what is used on their hooves to protect against bacterial and fungal infections in certain areas, what they are given to keep their intestinal tracts healthy or what medications they are dewormed with? Now who is the frigging Einstein that thinks horse slaughter for human consumption - or even Fido consumption - is healthy? Give it to the Europeans or the Japanese, like Mikey, they’ll eat ANYTHING......no thanks =/

No, I would not buy, the stuff is expensive.

Eat? Why not. Zebra is delicious so perhaps horse is as well.

I ate at the Ikea in Round Rock, Texas a few months ago. Perhaps I did have some horse meat in the meat balls.

FReeped.

I’ve eaten rattlesnake, lizard, monkey, and some other things in Korea and the Phillipines that I still can’t be sure of. Buffalo is pretty good but kind of tough. Octopus and squid are rubbery but I may have had a bad “chef” back in the ‘70s.

I’ve also decided that some pets would be good protein sources if the SHTF.

Horse? No problemo, Pablo. Grill me a thoroughbred medium rare and pass the A1.

The last horse I owned was but days away from filling up my freezer and providing a leather hide. Lucky for him a local rancher bought him.

I was in Paris in a restaurant on the Avenue des Champs Elysess, and it was cold, we were sight seeing, so the lady with me ordered hot soup and a “Burger au Cheval” for us. I was with a lady who had lived in Paris and Monte Carlo and is Swedish and speaks several languages, so she was my “guide”. She had done the ordering. I thought a burger was a burger, right? Later I asked for the translation of that burger because I knew “cheval” meant “horse”.

She said that particular burger meant “on horseback”. A fried egg was on top of the meat so that made it an “egg on horseback”, she said. It didn't mean the meat was horse meat.

You know what, I always thought that meat was horse meat no matter what she said.

I would not KNOWINGLY eat cat or dog, either. But having lived in Japan for 3 years in ‘59 - ‘61 and dined in Japanese restaurants many times, I’m sure I have probably UN-knowingly eaten both.

I told the relative at the time that I didn’t think it was beef and since selling elk or venison is illegal in the US he was shocked. He had bragged to me on the way to the butcher shop that New Mexico beef was better than Texas beef. I never heard anymore about it after that.
