I couldn't imagine eating horse. Icky!
What exactly is icky about it? It's an animal that eats basically the same diet as beef cattle.
Want to talk about "icky"? Cash-strapped farmers feed candy to cows - Oct. 10, 2012
Cows fed candy, cookies and whatever other cheap "junk" food is available. I'm sure that makes for some wonderfully healthy meat!
I raise my own cows (no sprinkles, cookies, corn or anything even remotely junky) and I could see raising a herd of horses for food (I would want to raise them myself so I KNOW what they ate and were injected with).
Every animal tastes a bit different. My kids routinely eat Antelope, Bison, Deer, Elk and our home-raised beef, pork, chicken and turkey. It's not in the slightest bit "icky" to them, it's just normal dinner.
