I have eaten horse meat and I will again.
Would I eat my own horse? no because I know what crap I've put into him.
I'd love to see any papers of people dieing due to eating horse meat and it being directly attributed to Bute. Infact in Europe the vast majority of horses going for meat are bred for meat or are completely unhandled. Europe also has hirse passports which a vet should sign before administering any drug that would stop the horse entering the human food chain, the signature in the passport will remove the horse from the food chain (owners can also sign the same box). Finaly in Europe it seems like vet meds are more strictly controlled. You cannot get antibiotics fram anyone other than the vet and then only if they have seen the animal, you can't just vaccinate your horse it has to be done by the vet (and signed off in thier passport), you can't just buy bute etc you have to get them from the vet.
RIDE your horse FORWARDS and keep him STRAIGHT
