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.
