  •  I read it was imported frozen from Poland (8+ / 0-)

    by the Irish meat processor, who then mixed it into hamburger along with beef from their operations.

    You can't even export horses from the US without certifying they won't be used for food - unless you export them by plane, which doesn't have the certification requirement (I used to read export regs when bored).

      ...I have to buy it a plane ticket?

      Does TSA have any restrictions on bringing horseshoes through airport metal detectors?

      Hopefully the horse is fine with flying coach, because there's no way I'm going to spring to fly it out business or first class.
