Keep Them in the Stable, Not on the Table

People of Europe, be careful of what you eat. What has been branded as beef is actually horsemeat. How could any legitimate business do something like that? Horse flesh is not fit to feed to a dog or cat. To sell butchered horses, would somebody be willing and able? Those four-hoof beasts of burden don’t belong on the table. We should keep our fine riding friends in the stable. From a news story found on

    Thank you for penning this, Robert! Yes, horrible. I went to a horse rescue farm, so time ago, here in Ontario. It was VERY eye opening. I learned that the horses wait and VIEW the other horses being butchered. These animals are INTELLIGENT. They understand that they are about to face death. The method to the slaughter is awful... well done bringing this subject to light.
