: : As a total horse fan and a rider for some years (English style, of course!!!), I just wanted to say how much I enjoyed your piece on the Appaloosa. I also wanted to make sure that you know we don't eat horses in England - its those darned Francais again!!!

: Actually, Native Americans often ate their horses (along with their dogs) in order to survive harsh winters. They also viewed them as livestock, and an old or lame horse did not spend years eating up grasses needed for the young and healthy, but found themselves simmering in the stew! But eating MY horse, now that's a different story! YRH
True. I believe the Mongols also ate their horses and looked at them as livestock. Drank mare's milk too I believe. Always wanted to try that! I've had goat's milk, but reading about the Mongols gave me the romantic notion of trying mare's milk. Now before Doc M says I am having unhealthy desires for animals, I am using the term "romantic" in the literary sense, not the relationship sense!
She is SO depraved you really have to watch what you say else it is misconstrued.
