    Mntigerstripes, I think we probably agree on this , but one of the points I was making is that a lot of people would prefer to forget the issues exsist, or evade, or even verbally attack it because it makes them feel uncomfortable. I am sure we agree on most points, but I do not think, as a so-called civilized species, that we can justify the methods used in procuring (any) meat for the table. And I particularily don't think that we need to eat horsemeat, in a country where other more traditionally farmed livestock ( another discussion) is available. The horse as an animal has helped mankind, throughout history, in so many ways, and deserves more from us, than to become another dish for a palate that ussually eats way too much meat anyway, and for that reason, I do not think I would never want to see horsemeat available in a grocery store or butchers shop. However, I agree; if it was the case that a cultural people have eaten horsemeat throughout history, then it would probably be better to have it legal, for the reasons you state. My own personal view though, is that human nature being what it is; to put more value on horsemeat would only encourage more people to "process" it, with all of the ussual problems, welfare issues and transportation issues. But I do have to say, in the event of a catastrhophe, I would not be eating my horses, anymore than I would consider eating my best friend; I think they would be of far more benefit to me alive ie cultivating some crops, transporting material to make a shelter, etc... because the fact is, we can easily survive without meat.
