Horse meat inspection ban lifter in the u.s.......
 
Horses could soon be butchered in the U.S. for human consumption after Congress quietly lifted a 5-year-old ban on funding horse meat inspections and slaughterhouses could be up and running in as little as a month...I can't see Horse-Meat in my meat dept.of the local food-store..The newspaper said with the bad economy,people will eat horse meat,with the price cheaper then the other meats on the rack...It just can't happen???...CAN-IT???....:confused:.....:(......Would...YOU...EAT-IT....?????........

My boss worked on a ranch in the 70's and he likes to tell the story of the night one of the guys was massively impressed with the stew the cook had made. The guy asked the cook what cut of meat it was cause he'd just found his new favorite. The cook told him it was the horse they'd had to put down earlier that day lol. My boss said it was dang good meat. Would I eat it? Depends if I knew what it was beforehand.

Up until just a couple years ago, there was a horse processing plant in DeKalb, Illinois. It was the last one in the USA. They sold the meat to Belgium.

My father in law said moose meat tasted a lot like horse. They eat the heck out of it in Canada and Europe. Sure I'd eat it, we eat pigs don't we? How can a horse be less appetizing?

There are a lot of feral horses shot here in Australia and a lot end up as pig bait but there is an export market for the meat to Europe and for our feral camels,kangaroo's and pigs there is also a market for them in Europe and Arabia.

Horses are good for 2 things Glue and Dog food. Now they might be good for 3 things.

In my eyes horses are worthless. I would eat one in a heat beat.
