First off, and my personal opinion - so damned what. Meat is meat and horse tastes pretty good. I'd rather eat horse than beef laced with growth hormones and antibiotics.

However - we went to Tesco this evening and the frozen/chilled food aisles were completely empty. Picked a till where I could see three aisles clearly and in the 15 minutes of waiting then being cashed out there was not one single person went down the aisles that I could see. This is on a typical Friday evening where you have to wait for a trolley since the store is so busy.

Exactly.
If Obama can eat dog, what's wrong with a little horse?

After considering this a bit... You can't ride a steer and they don't sleep in your bed.  i rhink my preference is still grass-fed beef which i can buy locally.. Or Bison...no horsemeat or dog for me.  Actually i don't eat a lot of meat.. But a good steak sounds good fron time to time.

I prefer corn-fed beef, grass fed is what we used to call range cattle.  Lean-the new word for stringy.

It's everywhere!!!
