Oh, my, did I not sound hypothetical in that post? :roll:

I answered your question realistically because you asked it. The last horse I sold when for $3500. How many people do you really think would spend $3500 on a horse they were just going to eat when they can go pick up one for free off CL or for <$50 at any auction? I don't worry about horses I sell getting eaten because I don't sell crap horses to other people, unlike many others.

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/

Some of the puns are funny, but it's still distateful and gross. I know slaughter might be a neccesary thing, but I don't think it's something to joke about.

I would have no problem "selling" my horse for meat if they were about to die anyway. Quite frankly, I've always thought it a bit wasteful to just dump carcasses into the ground. However, it's doubtful the meat would be edible anyway as they have to wait the token 30 or 60 or whatever the time frame is for all medicine and such to work out of the system.

I wouldn't sell my useable horse for food because I didn't spend a couple years training it to be food. If the horse has a purpose, it's counter productive to sell it for meat when there are so many unproductive and/or useless horses out there.

I dislike it when good useable horses go for slaughter. However, if the animal is three legged lame and 20 years old, ON THE TRUCK. It drives me bonkers when people "rescue" completely worthless animals and leave the useable ones to be slaughtered.
