RE: [RC] [RC] Wild Horses - heidi

On the other hand, my husband (who is a native Dane and still spends a fair amount of time in Denmark) says you can still lead your horse down to the neighborhood butcher and wait while he processes the horse, and take home some steaks.  I didn't see any signs about horse meat one way or another last time I was there--but that is the practice in the rural areas. 
It really isn't much different from taking your horse to the vet clinic for euthanasia--except that the carcass does not go to waste.

it is always intersting to see the number smiling horse signs from the meat

markets.  The wine is good with a two inch steak.

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 ;-))
