I love horses. Sometimes I love them under saddle and sometimes I love them under gravy!

There's nothing like the Rockies in the springtime... Nothing like the freedom in the air... And there ain't nothing better than draggin calves to the fire and there's nothing like the smell of burning hair. -Brenn Hill

If Soda doesn't come out sound soon, he's going to be under gravy... He's even nice and fat from having the last month off and grazing in the pasture...

I never ate a horse, but my cousin was forced to either eat horse or starve years ago when he was in some remote 3rd world place in the military. He said that it is very poor quality meat and tastes bad. He said that it was similar to moose meat, which I hate. (I don't hate all wild game, but moose doesn't agree with my palate.)

Carpe Diem!

Celeste a lot of the meat's flavor depends on what and how often an animal is fed. Good example for me are deer. The deer we harvest have a good flavor, but they regularly feed on corn and soybeans. Go farther west and they get into sage and their meat tends to have a sage flavor to it that I cannot stand.

^^Thats why I didn't like plains antelope. Stupid buggers eat sage all day.

First world problems man, first world problems! It's become a running joke in our household, and it really does apply here.

I hope God tells her to smash her computer with a sledgehammer.

goodhrs, ellabella doesnt have a clue. I'm also british and I eat horse meat. It is NOT illegal here and if she bothered to do her research a lot of people in the uk would say they would try it!

RIDE your horse FORWARDS and keep him STRAIGHT
