Horse meat has been illegal to use in commercial dog food since I think it was 77. I do know two breeders around here that make their own dog food and use horse meat this year. They buy horses for next to nothing this year and butcher them and use that meat in their mixture. We've cooked it on the grill this summer a few times and its pretty good tasting to me. Sweet taste compared to beef which I like better but I've eaten goat a few times and like horse alot better.
