Hey Mustang, I heard that they legalized the use of horse meat
consumption? Please!!! Now who's the nut that came up with this one. Don't we have enough problems in this country, without doing something that stupid??? Good grief!!! sick

Jabber I hadn't heard anything about this, but did some checking, and sadly, you are correct (As you generally are.)

Historically horse meat has been eaten in many parts of the world, including Europe as late as the 1930s - during times when other meat sources were unavailable.

Here's my source on the historical aspectg: Horse Meat for human consumption

And here's a news story on it: Congress Lifts Ban on Slaughter of Horses

Of course, I agree it sounds inhumane!
