    LOL @ "cat or dog flavoured"

    I stopped judging people a long time ago about foods they ate - I stick to the usual and traditional but in other countries I'm one strange weirdo for liking soda and prunes.

    I use to watch "Bizarre Foods with Andrew Zimmern" - and man . . . people think horse is unacceptable or gross?

    We consume the sacred cow and fish.

    To me - one culture's relationship with an animal doesn't mean another culture MUST view it in the same way.

    Deer is not dry and tough though, not if prepared right. Stewing is only one way, but certainly not the only. A lot of game meat such as deer or elk can be very easy to make dry and tough if you do not know how to cook it. The margin for failure is larger than with beef which we have engineered to have proper fat marbling through the meat (making it easier to cook and harder to **** up). But well prepared elk or deer or buffalo is delicious.

    As for horse meat; maybe it could be delicious too...but I'm going to just go ahead and say that I don't need to add another animal to my diet.

    It's not like it would be used in place of hamburger meat - For, what, a $50.00 burger? You know it's not cheap like that.

    I don't know - a lot of women who don't have decent jobs or a solid education - Sounds like your kind of place.

    Just a joke - don't get yourself in a tizzy.

    They are a smart animal, but not smart enough to avoid slaughter. HAHAHAHAH. Stupid pigs.

    But horses....horses are amongst the dumbest animals on the planet. The only thing they ever offered was transportation before we discovered the car.

    Horses values have dropped so much now, that free horses are readily available. Abandonment and neglect issues are huge, due to the economy. Now US horses are begin shipped to Canada and Mexico. There are horrific stories on the internet about inhumane slaughter in Mexico. Horsemen are split on the issue. US horse slaughter will likely bring the prices up. There's a huge problem with thousands of mustangs in govmnt holding pens in Nevada. I don't know how long a horse slaughter facility would be in business here. Oregon had one in Redmond, but it was sabotaged (I think in the 80's/burned?) by animal right groups. Horses are actually quite intelligent. They rank up there with dogs and cats.
