After having a discussion on a FB page with an American over Europeans eating horse meat, I asserted that apart from France, it's not a widespread thing. How suprised was I when it turns out Johnny Foreigner loves to chow down on ol' Black Beauty (and sometimes donkey meat).

Now I'm no vegetarian, but the thought of it makes me uncomfortable......so....have you? Would you?

And to make it clear, knowingly eating horse meat rather being served it in an alleged Findus "Beef" Lasagne.

Don't see why not, I guess people get more upset because people keep them as pets but from an ethical point of view it's no worse than killing any other animal for meat (ignoring how endangered a species is or if they are a dolphin).

Yep, Horse steaks, Zebra , Springbok , Kudu , Crocodile, Ostrich. All available online and all eaten at various times .
Unless you are against eating all meat , I cant see a problem with eating any properly farmed animals .

I dunno, there's an argument about being against the eating of large animals/red meat due to the amount of resources (water/feed/land/electricity etc) used in their farming/production, relative to small animals/poultry etc.

I would have felt pretty full after just the zebra to be honest...

Nouvelle cuisine. :smile:

Also eaten wild pigeon eggs bought off some street seller in Thailand and I'm here to tell the tale.

On the flip side Horse, etc produce less methane than bovines so perhaps the environmental issue is with beef ?

Yeah potentially, I'm no expert but know that beef has a massively disproportionate environmental impact relative to other meat products.

I guess those feeling iffy about it would also feel iffy about eating rabbit? Both animals that we keep as pets, and I think that's where the issue comes.

If the horse is ethically reared etc (as with veal etc) then I have no issue with it; however some of the horse meat, especially from Eastern Europe ought not to be used ever (not even as pet food) as doing so promotes their poor animal welfare.
