    Eating something you raised was just something you did in times past. I can see why she did it.

    Personally I don't like cannibalism either.
    That if any would be a Taboo food, right?

    What?
    I realize in some parts of the world certain species of animal life are consumed for nourishment that this traditional, Midwestern American man objects to seeing used for 'food'; with felines, canines, primates, and horses topping the list... And I'm not referring to acts of desperation during times of extreme trials and tribulation confronting those who are literally starving to death. No sane individual would object to the starving soldiers at Stalingrad, for example, shooting and consuming the flesh of their artillery horses.

    Although some American members here might try to excuse eating horse flesh as a 'normal' fare, I'm positive the general consensus in the "cowboy" states would find consuming horse flesh to be as utterly repulsive as feline or canine flesh.

    In America, horses are used for pets, pleasure riding, sports, and work. The ungulagrade equine is rightfully to be respected as a beast of burden, not a normal food source.

    As for the girl in the article, I can't help but wonder if she will pave the way for 'normalizing' the consumption of deceased family members that surviving relatives don't want to see buried in the Earth from which their bodies are composed of, and naturally return to.

    Before you criticize my views concerning this matter, think about all the other deviant forms of behavior that have since been 'normalized' via social conditioning.
    Aside from an ever increasing number of mortals who have willfully chosen to worship Satan and his minions, our battle has always been against the powers and principalities operating surreptitiously throughout this twisted world.

    Eating a horse is a far cry from eating a person. Don't let your emotions run away with you people.

    She should not have posted about it on Facebook. But then again a lot of people seems to think it is normal to share every meal they had on social media. For the rest the taboo on eating horse meat, as far as it exists, has more to do with efforts of Christians like pope Gregory III who wanted to stamp out pagan practices. Which is not a complete success, considering it is not a wide spread taboo. And can hardly be considered a taboo-food culturally spoken, with certain the exception of certain regions. However it could be a personal taboo if you follow Jewish dietary practices or consider them honorary humans (aka a pet).
    The sense of honor is of so fine and delicate a nature that
    it is only to be met with in minds which are naturally noble or
    cultivated by good examples and a refined education.

    For me the main issue is not a question to eat horse meat as such. It is a question to eat horse (meat) you have known well/shared a lot together. Some salami and metworst products (produced outside of Finland) can incl. some horse meat.

    2013 there was a scandal in EU as DNA tests showed that some cow meats included horse meat. Did't happen here....

    People have been consuming horse meat in Europe for millennia without any populations progressing to eating human flesh. I think we can rest easy.

    Yes, I think that's what caused the uproar, especially posting a photo of the horse while alive next to a photos of the cooked meat. That can look cruel and trigger people, even if the intention behind it was not.

But then again, the relationship would be colored by this fact from beginning to end, anyway, and not really comparable to the relationship the average person has to his or her dog or cat, for instance.

    I've eaten pigs who've been raised on a farm I worked at. Some times feeding them and cuddling them, and even sleeping together with them once. I was always aware of their destiny, though, that they would ultimately be turned into sausages in the not-so-distant future. The fact that they were treated with kindness and sympathy during their lifetime, didn't make eating them feel any more 'messed up' than it would have felt if they were merely treated as a piece of meat during life as well as in death. In fact, it felt much more comfortable, knowing that they had led a great life. In contrast to the mass-produced meat from animals kept under horrendous conditions in factory farms.
    I don't think being cuddly with livestock is really the same, from cradle to grave they are being raised for food. The relationship you have with a horse is much closer to that of a dog in that it works with you to produce things that are not of itself and forms a bond of friendship. This horse was this girl's pet and equestrian companion, it's not like she was keeping an eye on the quality of the meat while it was doing show jumps.

    On a personal note, horses have done more for us than even dogs civilizationally and to me that is a certain kind of sacral quality that demands at least the same respect we afford cats and dogs.

    I've eaten certain kinds of strange food such as haggis and offal, but didn't find them too tasty. These days I stay away from most types of meat and would probably only eat it if I really had to. I don't really like the taste of meat. I couldn't fathom eating dog, cat or horse meat and I don't think I could eat human flesh, the thought of it is far too gruesome. Even during that famed Andes plane crash not everyone could stomach the thought of eating human flesh and some of the plane crash survivors died as a result of starvation. Despite the fact that the cannibalism was resorted to consensually (those who were dying suggested it to the remaining survivors), it was still a tough decision that haunted them for the rest of their lives.
