Everyone should have the right to choose what they eat, even poor people. I'm sick of hearing right wing fascists trying to give us all stick just because we aren't rich.

but breeding mares are still throwaway meat, just not full of antibiotics and steroids like race and work horses.

What is your definition of throwaway meat?

Horse meat is leaner and probably better for people then drugged up beef.

Meat that wasn't specifically raised for slaughter. As is the case with you breeder mares. they are raised to breed, after they're doe breeding, they're trash to the owners, so instead of just throwing it away, they sell them cheap to the slaughter for cheap horse meat.

same reason all beef isn't equal. some is made better than others .

or they can sell the meat to the zoo, i'm sure some feline carnivores would appreciate it.

I don't know man. Animals raised for slaughter die young. Too young, in my opinion.

As such I have no problem eating old whatever meat, assuming that they had a long, productive life; ate good food and drank good water... which is what they --- in this case the mares --- did.

I am amazed how people are discussed by horse meat. its just as good as beef, and as I know some French, Swiss and southern Germans like horse sausages.
Besides horse meat was emergency food in wars, famine etc.

The problem is with English peoples who see horse not as a domestic animal but as pet.

Most people wouldn't be comfortable eating their pets but I have no moral objection to eating dog.

Much ado about nothing. Offer it to the poor. If they want it, there ya go. Heck, most people eat cow, pig and chicken without a second thought. And deer meat, venison, is quite tasty. I'd bet horse meat is good, too.

Newsflash: most of us are meat eaters! Oh, and if your plane crashes in the Andes, you'd eat human, too.

There's a saying: Beggars can't be choosers. If you're desperate enough, you'll eat about anything. I know this from experience.
