Other people confirmed this to. Horse meat was something regular in our meals, except it was called "pork" or "beef" :)

And I realy pray my dad was being mean and sarcastic because he also said we migh've ate plenty of these:



...chopped and minced in various sausage thingies. Yes, intentionally.
Nutria! I ate a lot of that in south Louisiana. Nothing wrong with it--it makes a great sausage filler and they can it and export it to France and other countries. Several friends trapped them every year and I got used to sitting around the wood stove with drying skins stretched inside out around it.

I would try horse meat if I had the chance, but I'm not going to seek it out. I'm certainly not against eating it.

Speedracer-
What I meant to say was that I doubt that it will become commonplace in the future.


I just think that people have an easier time stomaching beef (etc) than horse meat, for whatever reason.

But then again, I could be wrong.

It's perception, nothing else.

We don't raise them as meat animals here, and except for certain religious sects, they're not used as work animals any longer, either.

Horses have become nothing more than luxury item pets to the American public, and we don't eat our pets.

If for some reason we lost our internal combustion engines and all our technology, horses would soon go back to being beasts of burden and meat animals.

No. This topic has come up in our French class. He would talk about how in France they would eat horse and I would get offended. So now all the guys that were in that class are always like, "Oh hey, I had some horse last night, it was really tasty." or something like that. I had one guy come up to me and go, "I'm hungry for horse tongiht maybe I'll come by later and shoot your horse and have some fresh meat." Honestly, our French teacher let me go early cause he knew I was ready to do some serious damage to that guys...area.

To see the wind's power, the rain's cleansing, and the sun's radiant life, one need only to look at the horse.

Rough, if you don't tell people where you keep your goat, they can't get it.

The next time these boys say something like that, just ignore them. If you don't give them the reaction they're looking for, they'll soon tire of the game.

Boys tend to be cretins, especially teenage boys. They get better as they get older, but not by much. If you don't learn to let things like that fall by the wayside, you're going to continue to be a target.

I try to ignore them...I usually do. But seriously, its like our whole grade that's doing it. And me just ignoring them doesn't do anything. =/

No, I view horses as pets. I couldn't eat horse, just as I couldn't eat dog, or cat.

I have and would again if the need arose. Though so long as nice lean beef is still available, you won't see horse meat on my plate. When I did eat it, it wasn't the idea that I was eating horse, I just didn't much care for the flavor of it. Though I have absolutely no problem with people who do like to eat it and I honestly think it should be legalized here so that there is an out for all the unwanted horses of the country, however, this was not started as a debate over horse slaughter so I'll drop it there.

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/
