I can't understand how any country
could slaughter horses for meat.
Eating horse, to me at least, is
like eating dog. Sure I may eat it
if I were starving...but come on!
The whole sale slaughter of these
majestic animals is an atrocity.
When the Duke of Wellington was fighting the Spanish and French up through Portugal and into Spain, he retreated purposefully bfore the bulk of the French artillery could get up to the front. Wellington burned crops and useful supplies in a scorched earth campaign to deny the French andy provsions. The French were forced to eat their horses and demoralized. The retreating English slaughtered their slow oxen and ate beef, and burned what could not be carried. The English retreated to a huge redoubt that had been built near the sea in Portugal (while Wellington had been out marauding), the French attacked it in vain. The French had a long hungry march home.

Thank you for sharing that bit of history.
Very interesting and helpful to understand
that some people have no choice when it come's to survival.
If one has never been truly desperately hungry they can not grasp the concept of what they are capable of.

I live here in Ireland,
and it was announced yesterday.. the source
of the recent 'horse DNA found in burgers originated
in POLAND..

Thanks for the info.

Tesco have now dropped Silvercrest (Co.Monaghan) as a supplier for meat products & are now organising a regular meat testing lab for QC on its food supply.

If Poland WAS the supply chain than it was only a matter of sheer luck than Human DNA did not turn up, as rampant gangsterism was ongoing in E.Poland in particular until the footvote of Poles to the UK during the Ed Milliband "Jobs for the communists" program of the "Gordon brown" years.

Have a nice day: Ag

ps.
Papyrikarz Szecynski, a type of polish rice & potato paprika ghoulash in tins with a few fish scales in it was actually quite nice (no meat) but bloody expensive.

Was occasionally reported in S. Russia.

During failure time of USSR, meat was openly sold in markets derived from ex gangsters & their victims. The most obvious case had a bullet hole in it,(That one got in the headlines over here).

Made me think of my favorite movie, Caddyshack.
You can tell if it's a horse steak if it has marks where the jocky hit it-

Duh

I have a cousin (French/Spanish teacher) who lived
and taught in Paris for many years.
She told us how most places that served food served
horse. The butcher shops actually have a horse head
that hangs out front.
When she told me this (I was 14) I hated them all.
Childish I know but I couldn't imagine anyone eating
horse.
I still find it hard to believe. I had no idea that
we slaughtered them here in the states.
But I have heard of truck drivers driving them across
the boarder to Mexico for slaughter.
Terrible thing.
