County, not country. Your post led me to believe that what you described was a commonplace practice in your area.

Unfortunately, even before the ban and market crash, there were cheap and free horses around. Old ones, untrained ones, sick or injured ones....I got offered several free horses (and these were young, sound, and healthy) before the funding was cut and the plants closed. Where there's a will for that kind of abuse, there's a way....

Cows and other animals are raised for food & dairy products and have been for a long time..... Horses arent lol, I've never met anyone who eats a horse they used to ride and love, that is ******ed. LOLLL :) Horses being put down & slaughtered is very different. I understand horses being Putdown because they are too old, or unfit to be around, but slaughtering them is brutal. I wish I was a vegan I hate the thoughts of any being slaughtered.

Becca, an animal being put to sleep is not always peaceful either. When my precious dog was put to sleep, he suffered greatly for a short while. It was not the image I had of him closing his eyes and going to sleep at all.

Not going to touch on my opinions on your thought process but:
Just because you don't know someone who eats horse does not mean it doesn't happen .
-and-
Veganism is a choice. If you "wish" you were one, don't sit at your computer desk whining about peoples sins for the existence of slaughter then go get a hamburger.... That just makes you a hypocrite....

An animal being put to sleep is much more peaceful then slaughter. Well in my country, people do not eat horse, they are a pet, that someone loves and cares about. This is MY opinion not yours and nothing you can say would ever change my mind on slaughtering horses. SORRRYY

They certainly are in France and other parts of Europe (not in the UK though), big breeds like the Breton, Haflingers sometimes, Comtois are all bred for size and weight and have been for a very long time. Yes they ride them and then eat them. This is the world we live in, and for me as long as the animal has a pain free and healthy life I really don't have a problem with it. It is animals which are neglected and left in pain with no end that I feel for, there are worse things than slaughter.


...and be vegan if that is what you want to be.

Good for those places then .. lol... stilllll don't agree to it. Where i'm from we rescue horses being sent to slaughter just because they can't run fast enough or whatever the reason, its unacceptable.

Please, for the love of all that's holy, STOP with the silly lols at the end and beginning of all your sentences!

You've certainly led a very sheltered life if you think my disagreeing with you is in any way personally attacking you.

Oh, and you obviously don't understand sarcasm at all, if you didn't get the point behind Hindus thinking cattle are sacred, yet you insist on eating them.

You'd be surprised about my being able to change someone's mind. I've done it more than once. But then, the person has to be logical, rational, and realize that horses are no more or less deserving than any other meat animal.

If you feel so guilty about eating any type of meat, then STOP. It really is that simple.

You want the truth? You can't HANDLE the truth!
