Me thinks people need to THINK before starting stupid threads.

Most people are like Slinkies; they serve no real purpose, but they bring a smile to your face when you push them down the stairs.
When you come to the end of your rope, tie a knot and hang on for dear life.

^ Agreed.

If you want everyone to agree with you - write it down in your diary.

this isn't stupid at all.

Let us touch the dying, the poor, the lonely and the unwanted according to the graces we have received and let us not be ashamed or slow to do the humble work.

The sale of horsemeat is illegal but the actual consumption is not. So if you wanted to eat your own horse then that would be legal.

Incidently, my cousin came back from spending two years in New Zealand and he said he ate alot of horsemeat while he was there. The U.S. Is one of the only countries that don't consume horses. I would like to try it if it were available here. I imagine that it is quite lean and high in protien.

the reason why it isn't consumed here is the same reason why dog or cat isn't consumed here.They are a companion animal and it is illegal to consume it here in cali.

^ Is that a fact? Is it written in stone? Nah. I doubt it.

But it's plausible because so many people find slaughtering anything cruel. What about capitol punishment? Is that cruel to you? What if they've commited no crime?

No horse are NOT considered Companion animals they are considered Livestock. Why are they not used in the same way as cattle and other livestock??? I have some ideas one is the bleeding hart liberals who do not want it. If they had their way we would not slaughter and eat cattle pigs are any other animal. Plus the fact that they where so NEEDED in the early days of this country and there was no NEED to eat them.

As for Dogs not being eaten. Boy where have you been. That is a delicacy is many cultures and if you go into areas of the US who have the immigrants from those countries you WILL NOT FIND a live dog or cat. If they find one or get one they eat it.

I do always wonder what these people think will happen if these animals weren't bred for eating? They would be killed to make room for crops.
