3. Reader Comment of the Day: "It's all emotional..horses are so graceful and beautiful and have been so helpful to humans all these years, so on a personal level I would choose not to eat them (just as I choose not to eat veal). But that said, yes, I agree technically that it should be legal...but let's make sure it's clearly labeled so people know exactly what they are eating. Most of the time, consumers get angry when they are not told what something is, what hormones have been injected, what something is preserved with (red slime, ammonia, etc.). Those are the huge issues in my opinion." Reader Webmom, commenting on the story, "A Horse Of A Different Color."
