What people should enforce is a stricter law against cruelty to animals, slaughter isn't cruel, it's quick.

And I'm not against slaughter, but to say we don't love horses cause we are for it is ridiculous. I love my horse more than anything, I freak out at the slightest little thing bad that happens to her. Sorry for the double post.

^^That's fine that yall are against it, but please Think about it if yall ever try shutting down all the plants, think of what's going to happen to all the horses that don't get homes cause they were saved from certain death at slaughter. They are going to starve because the rescue sights won't know what to do with them nor have the money to pay for em all, and they have to sign all kinds of things to be able to euthanize them. As hard as it would be to choose, I think the horse would choose slaughter over Starvation.

Why don't you just worry about your horses and let everyone else worry about thiers? It shouldn't be illegal because my horses are my personal PROPERTY. I paid money for them and I own them so I should be able to do what I want with them.

Exactly, and it's not like all owners send their horses to slaughter anyway. The U.S. Is mostly cow and pig and such, those are the animals typically raised for slaughter, not always, but usually. Cause horses aren't as typically cheap like cows and such. That's why horse meat is considered a delicacy I think. (Correct me if I'm wrong)

Incorrect. Equine slaughter is NOT illegal in the U.S. It's only been banned in several states, one of which is California. That means at least 47 to 48 of the U.S. States still allow it.

Why can't you anti-slaughter folks seem to get that fact straight?

The SALE of horse meat for human consumption is banned in the U.S., not slaughter itself. If I so choose, I could have my own processed for meat. I could give the meat away, but not sell it.

I agree with Kevin. What I choose to do with my own horses is none of your business. Just because YOU think of horses as pets doesn't mean everyone does, nor do they have to.

Katesrider, horse meat is not considered a delicacy. Many horses are raised as meat animals in Europe, and it's no more expensive than any other cut of meat. That's another fallacy the anti groups put out.

For all of you tearing out your hair and rending your garments over equine slaughter, do you eat meat of any kind? If you do, then shame on you for picking horses out as being 'better' and 'more worthy' than cattle, pigs, fish, sheep, goats, chickens, turkeys, etc.

Even still though if slaughter houses were built back in the usa I don't think the number of horses being slaughtered will increase by much, it'll stay the same steady amount. So I don't think slaughter is anything to freak out over.

Bottom line...slaughter's not going away, so they need to open them back up here in the U.S. And then put very strict regulations on them and the travel TO them to ensure the horses are being treated humanely. Right now, that's not happening since they're being shipped to the not-so-regulated slaughter houses in Mexico and the overflowing slaughter houses in Canada. :(
