Would you eat a horse? Ya or Naaaaa

Sorry about the title. I just couldn't help myself. So one of the hot new news stories is Obama legalizing the slaughtering of horses for consumption in the US. When I first read this story I thought "This can't be real". How barbaric. Lets just grab some clubs and put loin clothes on and live in caves. Then I read it all over FB. Surprisingly enough though it didn't seem to bother that many people. Then I started to think about it from different angles. When compared to just another farm animal, it doesn't seem like it's that bad. Although I would never eat one myself. I'm not a very big meat eater anyway. I think that horses are beautiful animals but does that mean that we should eat pigs because they're ugly. Just kiddin... I don't really think that pigs are ugly. They're cute when they're babies. I would love to hear your comments on this. What say you?


  1. EEEEWWWWWWW! never! I heart horseys.

  2. we were just talking about this at home the other night. james has had horse when he was overseas years ago and said he loved it and he doesn't see anything wrong with it. my first thought was never, why would anyone do that to a horse. but then i got thinking the same way you did...we eat chickens, pigs, cows, fish, deer...i just hold horses at a different standard then the other animals i guess, to me it would be like eating my dog =(
    i'm still on the fence over the whole thing! great post
