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.
I hope God tells her to smash her computer with a sledgehammer.
