  •  the real problem is that horses sold for slaughter (9+ / 0-)

    are not sold for human consumption due to the large amounts of equine medications that make horsemeat dangerous to eat (not withstanding the idea that eating one of our most intelligent and wonderful companion animals is just plain barbaric).

    would YOU want a "burger" or "steak" that is filled with pergolide (banned for people, okay for horses) or bute (phenylbutazone), or so many other horse medications.

    there are valid reasons to ban horsemeat, especially when most horse meds clearly state "not to be used for animals used for human consumption).
