Looks like this I didn't dig deep enough before posting. Article is probably BS.

I had to bury one of my sons girlfriends horses Monday night. It colicd and twisted its gut. I wanted to pull a back strap out to try it but she would never go in the house and had to watch me bury him.

Opportunity lost. It's cold enough. Dig it up.

Never had the opportunity, but I'm not opposed to it.

I don't see any difference in eating a horse, than any other farm animal. Heck, their cleaner than hogs and cows. I'd try it.

I have eaten horse on several occasions. It isn't bad. I would eat it again without any problem.

My wife lived in Belgium for several years when she was a girl, in the early 1970's. She's told me that you could buy French Fries there that were fried in horse fat, and that she hasn't had French Fries that were that good since then.

back when fed cattle were bringing 1.70 plus per lb we were out of beef because we couldnt bring ourselves to butcher one of our perfectly healthy cattle due to the high price. I tried to convince my wife that we should buy a horse and slaughter it for cheap meat.........No go :(

I have never tried horse meat, but I have no problem with trying it if the opportunity ever presents itself. Horse is bound to be better than some of the meat I have tried to eat.
