I'm not going to through out names here like most of you are doing, but horse slaughter has only been around since the time of the wars and even then it started because the soldiers didn't have anything else to eat.
And when you say they are slaughtered because people choose to eat horse meat.You are wrong there.That is why there are no slaughter plants open in the US now.Why is that? Why do you think that Natural valley farms was closed due to the welfare of the animals?!
Do the math.
