You would choose to murder and eat people over eating a horse? Rather sad to say the least not to mention very illegal. But it does display what I've said all along I've just never heard a logical reason to ban the slaughter of livestock regardless of species. Nor have I ever heard anyone say a person should eat their horse unless they choose to.
how can you not see the personal attack in this?

I honestly don't see the personal attack in that statement. I do see facts. I think it IS a little depressing that a person would rather eat their own kind than an animal that is technically livestock. Plus it IS very illegal to kill and then eat people, history is full offenders who have been placed in prison for multiple life sentences for this offense. The rest of the post just seemed to be county stating his opinion and observances.

the "rather sad" part is the personal attack. There were others too, it was not only county.

Feeling its " rather sad " that someone would eat a human is a personal attack? I think only if ones going out of their way to find it. I feel its sad someone would eat a human theres no personal attack about it.

I agree. I don't want to eat my horses or anybody elses for that matter, but if it came down to eat a horse or starve I'd be there with my fork.

^ I actually would rather starve than eat Joe....but that's just me... Talking about slaughter in general is always a hot topic on another forum we can only talk about it if it is for learning purposes otehrwise it is prohibited.

The rider casts her heart over the fence, the horse jumps in pursuit of it.

Please, don't tell me you took my statement about rather eating people over horses literally!

You would have to be either naive , gullible, or paranoid to believe that. What I was saying is that under no circumstances would I eat my horse or anyone elses.

My horse is my companion, and I value her over many humans -- she has more compassion, loyalty, common sense and personality.

Well as long as were throwing out insults I thought your making the statement was rather dense.
