    Supposed to be nutritionally equivalent to buffalo ... works for me.

    I'm an equal opportunity carnivore.

    People hunted and ate horses for a long time before some brave soul decided to hop on. I ate quite a bit of horsemeat while I was stationed in Iceland. It's good eats...

    I couldn't have stated it better myself

    I cannot think of a reason that horsemeat would be bad. I eat ground hogs and coon and even the occasional muskrat hind quarter. One horse would supply me many months sausage makins.

    But, I guess there are many who would say...Neiiiiigh, to eating horsemeat.:D

    I read an article on Horse Meat not to long ago. It was a staple of most of our ancestors diets before the Pope at the time labled it Pagan and forbade it.

    I like horses, I don't think I could eat one. To majestic.

    There was a small horsemeat craze in the mid-70's...when I was in college.

    Anyway...I had a minor class called Speech, where you learned how to speak to audiences, promote an idea or item...sell a concept to the masses, etc.

    Well, I had to give a presentation speech where I had to convince my small class to do something they would not normally do. Well, I bought horsemeat, which looked like groundbeef, cooked into small hamburger sized patties, put it on buns...then gave a presentation on different sauces and condiments to serve it with, not telling anyone that the "hamburger" they were using to judge the sauces was really horsemeat. I then presented a poll asking everyone how they would rate the "burgers" and the different types of sauces...having them give a rating to each type of sauce they sampled. At the end, everyone said the meat was tender, juicy, and the sauces were superb...( creamy horseradish, BBQ, honey mustard, etc ).

    Then I hit the class with the zinger...asking if they ever had tried horsemeat, or if they would even consider trying it. Some said maybe, while most said NO, never. I then broke it to them that they had just eaten horse meat...and that they even raved about how tender and juicy it was...thus I was able to convince them to try horsemeat without ever telling them that was the purpose of the exercise until the very end. Most said they would probably buy or eat horsemeat again, now that they had tried it and found it tasty and leaner than the more expensive beef. I got an A in the class...

    Tried that on my inlaws years ago...with coon

    *********************************************​

    My inlaws (former) called one Sunday afternoon and kinda invited themselves over for dinner. I let it slip that I was making homemade noodles...the old fashioned way...with flour, eggs and a rolling pin.

    O...OOO...OOO they wanted some so bad. So of course I couldn't say no. What I didn't tell them was that the beef was really coon. My brother in law said one time he would NEVER eat wild game and especially coon and would sue me if I ever fed it to him. I am still waiting to be served but I think the statute of limitations has run out. However, revenge is/was best served cold.)

    Everyone oohed and awwwed about how good it tasted so I never told them until the pot went dry. I would have liked seconds but watching them scarf it all down was a pleasure not often received.

    No, but the teacher was a vegan...and he was so impressed that he kept bringing up that exercise again and again.

    I have to admit, I gagged a little ,almost, just reading that story.

    Im not a vegan, but not one that could eat my pet either.:D:eek:

    I have seen some people ,in 1967, eat their dogs, and I know I could not get past that smell.:eek:

    Ill stick to frog legs and possum.

    I've put down plenty of possums, they are ugly, no beholder can contest that.
