"The sample of one brand sold by British supermarket kingpin Tesco was more than a quarter horse."

More than a quarter horse? So the meat was from like a draft horse such as a Clydesdale or a Belgian? B^D

Why is it so culturally bad to eat horse? I'm not saying I necessarily want to but I just don't see what the difference is between horse and beef cattle...

I agree, horses aren't overly different from cattle, deer, or elk. I imagine the meat may be tougher and leaner, but more or less the same.

If you can eat Bambi then why not Black Beauty?

Human beings were eating horses long before we were riding them and keeping them as pets. All those horses you see in cave paintings? They were painting food.

The problem is not eating horse, although it is not eaten extensively in most European countries it still gets eaten.

The problem is eating something labelled as something else. I think we can all agree that its a good idea to know what is on the ingrediants list is actually all you are eating.
