We slaughter horses in Australia, and we export horse meat to France. Its not illegal to eat it or slaughter horses, but it's not sold widely on the market either

As far as being pro slaughter and therefore hating my own horses - I have been outside every 30minutes today since 5.30am, cold hosing, icing and poulticing my thoroughbreds hind legs, and picking scabs off his back thanks to rain scald.
Interested to see if that is counted as hating horses?

Whoa! Did I miss the thread segue?

First the OP posed the question about whether we could like horses and not oppose horse slaughter, and now, suddenly, the thread is about residual medications in horse meat for human consumption?

Did I miss a turn?

I like this part of discussion though, because it is interesting indeed. I wonder how much residual medications we have in beef/pork/lamb/chicken. Was there any research really?

The only thing I had read about was that Bute had been linked to cancer in humans. But a quick google search says that the evidence that Bute caused cancer is 'inadequate'

It'll do. But surely you can hate them a bit more than that!

We don't actually love our horses, we just buy $18-a-bale hay for eight equines by using the money we need for bills to fatten them up for slaughter.

Nah. I love my ponies, and still support slaughter. I don't support the way it's carried out. The idea itself is harmless, it's the way it's done that is the problem...

Add a public holiday vet call for a horse with a now raging temperature, very dehydrated and an infection to the list. Oh, and the 3 litres of saline fluid we've just pumped into him. MERRY CHRISTMAS to me :/
Yessir, I hate my horses right now!

I appreciate your sentiments, celeste, but that first sentence was BOUND to raise a few hackles.....

Perhaps you should have worded it differently if you wanted a productive debate rather than satire....
