I know it's a different type of culture and it is interesting..have you ate cat?! I heard they are stringy.

So when you look at a horse..do you think of food? I always wonder what horse eaters think of when they look at them.

It is definitely a different culture over here. I will have to post pictures sometime soon.

No, I haven't eaten cat. I have done fresh road kill raccoon. It was pretty stringy. Not bad though. No, when I look at horses I don't see a great big steak walking around. I see an animal that has many different uses. Whether it be for companionship, food, or a means to get around. Honestly, it is the same with cows for me. They have a purpose. It all depends on how you treat them, and what you end up doing with them.

So do YOU see Mcnuggets walking around instead of cute little chickies? Nice tender steaks instead of a cute fluffy cow? A hot glazed ham instead of Babe and Gordy?? What about breaded and fried sticks instead of the goldfish in your fish tank?

I have eaten horse and still keep them as pets and love them very much. I have raised pigs as pets and grandma had them butchered when they were nice and big. Same with cows and chickens.

if it were me i'd have definitely taken that horse head home! would be awesome to own an intact horse skull! Honeysuga did you guys Marinate the horse meat? or season it any? sounds like it might be a spicy/sweet tasting meat.

we went riding down an old back road on horses and honestly i felt a little creeped out when we passed 10! half eaten deer Carcasses. one even had a rope tide tightly around it's neck. idk what was going on. but i am very lucky my horse wasn't scared of a carcass. i'm not sure if maybe we had hunters that just killed for fun? or if maybe they were all hit by a car in a 1 mile radius.. but thats doubtful. or maybe spotlight hunting but again they would have taken the bodies and meat.

Sorry this made me laugh. I am a very visual person.

I don't eat Mcnuggets.

And no I don't picture that. Sorry..stupid question.Should have thought about it more. Sounds as you have been offended.

Just read all 12 pages of this thread. It might have gone off topic but it's completely fascinating!

The previous owners of this house left behind a huge collections of skulls. I haven't identified them all, but I believe them to be primarily raccoon skulls, though some might be cats, not really sure. One really fascinated me, it looked, in shape and size, to be a squirrel skull, but had a carnivorous set of teeth. It might have been a kitten skull, but I don't think so - the occiput was too long and pronounced. Maybe a baby possum? Don't know. I'll have to take a picture, if it's still around somewhere. I gave most the skulls away (not really interested in keeping them myself) but there are still a few laying around.

Update on horse head...the horse head was by a ladies house yada yada yada..anyways,I know the lady a little bit. i met her on the road and decided to ride with her since I was on Gidget. Anyways,the lady took pictures of it! She said it was laying around on the road for like 4 days and some critters took down a road that was even closer to where I board my horse.
