We’ve all heard the comment, “I’m so hungry I could eat a horse.” Helena Ståhl did just that.
I told my mother that if I could not eat meat from an animal that had a good life, I will never eat meat again. To eat meat from an animal that might never even get to see the sun, nobody thinks is odd. But to eat an animal that you, yourself, have taken care of is suddenly the oddest thing anybody has heard. I think that is scary.
People eat chickens, pigs, cows, so why not a horse?
Maybe it sounds terrible… how I can eat one of my very best friends? Either I ate her up, or the worms did it… Everything from support and curious questions to wrinkled noses and hatred. I never thought that it would get this much attention because to me, this is a normal decision, and I know other people who have done the same thing
