The horse meat people eat now must be contaminated are people getting sick? Another thing I do not understand is how can a skinny little horse be slaughtered for meat?

they have to wait a curtain amount of days to be slaughtered, and pass a regulation check. theres a surprizing amount of meat o skiny bones me thinks, but im not sure.

If there are no horses in heaven... im not going.

No different than eating a cow or pig, both have equal intelligence to a horsem so why not if your not vegetarian...

I personally wouldn't because I'm just not that type of person who tries new things that are unheard of where I grow up. And I don't think its technically "wrong" because cows, chickens, turkeys, sheep, and pigs are all commonly eaten as meat. It's just the food chain that they're all stuck in, and it's a natural part of life. I would, however, think it is very wrong if the animals were mistreated and/or abused in any way before being killed. Anyone else agree with me on this?

I've ate it before. :)

When I went to Germany I ate something called Sauerbraten and was informed it had horse meat in it.

I'd probably try it just out of curiosity, but I don't think I could make it a common practice.

I would... my grandfather ate it when he was stationed in Europe and he said it wasn't bad. I'll try most anything though... it's just how I grew up. I had to try whatever was on my plate before I could decide if I would eat it or not.

I wouldn't eat a horse any sooner than I'd eat a cat or dog.

I'm Canadian, but it's starting to bug me how the rest of the world thinks we're some kind of angels. I've heard that in Japan Canadian horse meat is considered better... If only they knew.
