Sheep and pigs can be quite cute as well, but I would eat them. I have no particular desire to eat horsemeat, but I also have no desire to eat pigeon, pheasant, partridge or any of those sort of things (actually I would avoid these them with all my might, having tried two of them and felt ill afterwards).If it was presented to me at a meal in , say, France, then I would probably eat it ok, as it would not be full of peculiar drugs or possibly from an animal that died of some disease. If it was accepted in shops in the uk it would also be ok (well from decent shops, not necessarily Tescos)

I also prefer to eat as few species as possible without getting over sentimental about it. Or worse still... vegetarian.

When I went to Belgium in 1978 for the beer festival we had fantastic steaks I was told later that it was horsemeat, would I eat it again? well if it was a matter of conscience I would have to stop eating Beef, Pork Lamb, Ostrich and Fish too.

Having now read what it is that Princess Anne said, I can see the sense in it, that it might improve the life of horses.

Selling horse meat isn't illegal is it?
So, if shops want to sell it they can, perhaps they don't because there is no demand for it.

We shouldn't confuse this with the recent horse meat scandal, that was a case of fraudulent deception where even people who claimed they didn't mind eating horse meat were conned into paying for beef and getting horse instead.

It was a bit more than fraudulent description Volty. I agree wityh everything you say about eating horsemeat, but in the cases recently it was not just fraudulent description, but the fact that, for the prices charged , the horsemeat was unlikly to have come from properly processed anumals, but there was a fair chance that it came from illegally slaughtered animals, which might have contained drugs banned from food for human consumption , or possibly diseased animals.

My wife found on twitter about cows that are considered not fit to eat because of TB,are being killed the parts affected by T B being cut out and the rest being returned to the food chain because it's costing government so much in compensation to farmers, this way they get some money back.
