Bitterwallet poll: would you eat a horse?

1 December 2011

184128-mysterious-horseboy-proves-internet-sensation-410x230 Over in the USA, where they do stuff and the rest of the world blindly follows, the ban on the slaughter of horses for food has been lifted, leading to speculation that horse burgers could soon be on the menu in restaurants right across the land of the free.

Well, maybe not, but it’s a possibility. After all, horsies are eaten in many other countries, and why not? They’re just like cows but a bit different – from horses, it’s just a small step to dog consumption and then we’ll probably be eating each other.

So then, be honest, have you or would you eat a horse? TELL US.

    Yes, I have done and it is decent enough meat. I prefer beef, but have no problem eating horse. For me there are no ethical reasons not to eat horse, seeing as I regularly eat sheep, pig, cow and goat, and hare and rabbit when I can get them. Along with just about any bird that tastes OK.

    OK, it's not horse meat but what the heck... TV chef Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall has declared that eating puppy meat is no more morally objectionable than consuming pork.

I might give it a try.

    I don't eat meat at all but if I did, I would have no problem with horse - eat one, eat them all, or eat none. If you go to the markets in Khazakstan they have sections for cow, pig, sheep, horse and bird meat.

    Has anyone actually managed to eat a horse? Most I ever managed was the head and a few legs.

    Living in Korea as I do, I'm fortunate enough to be able to eat dog (and live octopus) whenever I like! Although it's supposed to be illegal (like the Playstation rooms, DVD rooms, etc) all that happens in practice is that they don't they took down the pictures of cartoon dogs from the windows, and the English language signs. They even use different names (for those foreigners who can read Korean) calling dog stew 'yeongyangtang' ('health' soup) instead of the more widely known 'bosintang'. Eating horse - no worries.

    My gran ate a horse when she was eighty. She died of course.

    Nice one Boris, now get back to running London!! Had horse meat by accident a couple of times, but didnt like the taste. After 6 months in China, I have probably eaten just about every other common 4 legged animal though (dog, rat, cat, squirrel etc).
  • T
    Yes I have. Prefer cooked over raw. Horse sushi is an acquired taste

    “Horse meat contains 20% more protein than high quality beef cuts, 25% less fat, nearly 20% less sodium, double the iron and less cholesterol. When compared to ground beef, horsemeat has 55% more protein, 25% less fat, 30% less cholesterol and 27% less sodium.” That's why i eat it
  • Chris
    I can't justify why I wouldn't eat it, and if it tastes good, There would be no way I'd stop eating it lol
