You don't live here, I'm thinking.... ?You would have to actively search out the few remaining horse-butchers (assuming you wanted to) and what is interesting is that the walls of Paris are currently plastered with posters saying "Horses should look like this" (picture of racehorse/showjumper/kid's pony), not this (picture of unappetizing shrinkwrapped joint of meat). ?I live in a rural community only one or two steps removed from peasantry and I don't know a single person who would voluntarily eat horsemeat - but then, they don't all have berets and twirly moustachios either, or cycle around in stripey jumpers with onions hanging around their necks ;-))
