You are doing great! I am leaving for France this week & will be sure to pass the information along. My French husband (who was born & raised in France & who does not eat horse meat) used to think it was OK and was shocked to learn the real truth. (He could only watch a minute of that Bouvry video). Now, he is against it 100%!!! Keep up the good work!!! Looks like the poisoned horse meat will give foot-and-mouth a run for its money!

people who eat horse meat deserve to get really sick off of horse meat because their supporting horse slaughter . . . if EVERYBODY stoped eating horses meat then the people who run horse slaughter would run out of busness and have to close down.

It's not breeders that sell most of the horses in the U.S. for slaughter. It's race horse owners and trainers. The thing is, the horses that are sold are not old, broken down or sick. They are young, strong, beautiful racers that either aren't competitive any longer or have minor injuries that take time to heal. Sold for less than $400 per animal, they're shipped to Canada or Mexico to be slaughtered inhumanely and shipped to Europe, Japan and other countries that consider horse meat a delicacy. It turns my stomach to think of champions like Ferdinand, the 1986 winner of the Kentucky Derby sold to a breeding farm in Japan and ultimately slaughtered and served up for dinner. THAT is NO WAY to treat a CHAMPION. Until we learn to treat horses and other animals the way we treat members of our own families, I don't hold much hope for us as "human beings". Race horses run their hearts out for their owners and to be treated in this manner is despicable. If you agree, join the ILLIOIS EQUINE HUMANE CENTER as a member, and help us save thoroughbreds from the "meat wagon" as we come to the end of the 2010 racing "meet", literally hundreds of horses will be at risk. Check it out at I thank you from the bottom of my heart. Cynthia Cherry-Schif
