what is wrong with horsemeat? People also eat cows, chickens and many other animals. As long as the labeling is correct and these animals have/had a good life.
I know that my father went to a special store for horsemeat and this is over 50 years ago.

Not all of these animals have had a good life. There are medications and injections given to horses that make them unsafe for human consumption.

Also cows, pigs and chickens become upfront medication not because they sick but that they don't become sick. How sick is that??
When I eat meat only from "old-fashioned" raised animals without medication.

I can't even think about eating horse meat! This is horrible! Labeling the meat doesn't make it ok. Horses aren't raised to be eaten as meat. Terrible! thanks, Ginger

This has made me sick. I will never eat horse meat. I eat very little meat and horse is most definitely not on my menu.Relabeling meat does not make it right. It is like eating your dog or cat. If you need meat that bad go eat a human who slaughters horses!!!!!

Believe me u wouldn't want to eat my horses, they are wormed every 3 months and get shots twice a year....Besides the very idea of eating horsemeat is barbaric and I equate it with eating other companion animals like Fluffy and Fido....yum!!!
