KV , my MIL, who is from Germany, LOVES horse meat and tells me so every time she looks at my horses!

I personally am not even curious to try it, but I don't have any issues with other people eating it.......except my MIL! LOL!

I have. I was in France and I ordered a burger. It came thick and round with a fried egg on it. I didn't know it was horse meat until after I had eaten a couple bites. The texture was different so I asked the waitress what it was and she told me. I ended up eating the egg and the gravy fries and leaving the rest of the meat. It was a little traumatic for me but truthfully, they eat horse meat in Europe. Not a big deal for them...

I definitely would, why not? I like cows, pigs, chickens (heck I love chickens)...... but I like eating them to. Might as well, its already dead and packed up just sitting there waiting for me to try it.

I have eaten horse and while I would eat it if that's all I could afford or if it was all that was available to me. Other than that, I'll stick to beef because I just didn't like the flavor of the horse meat.

Some people in ?India? View cows as sacred, but you don't see them picketing in front of the supermarkets that sell beef. IMHO, if people want to eat horse meat, then power to them. I won't eat it again unless there is just no other option. I would go out and illegally shoot a deer or turkey before I'd eat horse because they taste better LOL.

lol, i'd imagine not...doesn't meat get tougher and less flavorful with the age of the animal?
I voted yes. Honestly, I prefer not to eat any meat at all...but the aversion to eating horse is a cultural thing. It seems kind of ...ethnocentric to demonize it the way some people tend to.

Lol! I guess depends on taste, huh. I've talked to some people in Europe/Asia and they were not impressed. I guess I'll just trust them on it without trying.

What I can't imagine trying though is cat or dog.

I tried gator once... It did smell quite bad... Don't think I want to try it again.

In Korea I tried to avoid asking what I'm eating. Lol! (although I knew for sure not dogs - we only went to cheapy places with fish and alike, from what I read dog meat is quite expensive down there).

KV, you are much more adventurous than I! The most "exotic" meat I've eaten is moose, and it was delicious. I preferred it to venison.

I'd try it, if I knew for sure that it was safe to consume it.

I don't treat my cows or pigs with any less care than my horse and I will be consuming them. They're all animals, I spoil all of them rotten, I just bought the cows and pigs for dinner and the horse for riding.
