Re: Horse meat

I dont eat horse, unless i have to. always had horses.

Also in my language (dutch) the horse is the only animal whos limbs are called the same as humans....its weird and really does not translate into English....

Re: Horse meat

I was told once that horse meat contains less fat. We eat it regularly, especially when making a tartar. It has a sweeter taste than a beef tartar. And I'll try the grated garlic / soya sauce version suggested by larsjensen. I'm mouthwatering already and it's only 9.30...

Some years ago my wife had a horse that got a seriously broken leg. She managed to get it into the local animal hospital where the vets all agreed that it would never set right and the horse would have years of pain and misery, so she agreed reluctantly to have it put down. This was her prized Arabian stallion who she had known since birth, she was obviously really traumatised and even more so when minutes later another vet came in with a gun and shot him in front of her.

A few weeks later she was coming to terms with the fact that her boy had gone when she got a payment advice to her from her bank. When she queried what the money was for, she learnt it was from a local horse butcher for so many Kg's of horse meat. They hadn't even asked her permission or warned her where he would end up.
The rank insensitivity actually made me laugh, sadly.

Re: Horse meat

I've always associated eating horse meat with the Alsace and Switzerland, but it turns out it's been very popular in the UK too...

Both UK and Ireland have a long tradition of horse racing - not everyone's a winner.

Old nags end up in Chappie and Pal; thoroughbreds end up as supermarket ready-meals.

I'm going to have to upgrade to the ready meals.

Thought the Chappie tasted a bit off lately.

Re: Horse meat

The horse meat scandal rumbles on...

In other news, Shergar's kidnap was 30 years ago today.

What happened to the animal remains a mystery.

So you wrote this post on 15.01.2013, long before the horse meat scandal...and then you played innocent and accused the "Romanian gangs"...Jesus, how hypocrite you are..
