That's the threat I use to keep our dogs in line. "Behave yourselves or I'll stick you in the oven and eat you."

Brexiters. It's your sh1t now. Whatever happens nationally and internationally you own it. I wish you luck. I think you're going to need all you can get and then some. Friday 13th December 2019.

Fried in good butter and garlic is better.

I can never fathom why horse meat is not used in dog food. It would, at least, be free from growth promoters and hormones etc. Racehorses, in particular, live on a wonderful diet free of any "additives".

Have you never heard of the 'Horse doping' scandals? Has it been wiped out?

There are millions of horses in the world. The amount doped must be miniscule. If you want to have a horse slaughtered you have to sign to say it is free of drugs so that it can go into a food chain somewhere. If it is on medication you get very little for the carcase. Perhaps it does go into the dog food market and they just hide it among the "additives" or "meat derivatives".

4 years ago I unknowingly had a horse meat steak in Catania Sicily. Only found out later. It was rather good, suspiciously large hanging off the plate but not the tenderest steak I've had. Nice source though.

The reason it was so tough is that the Italians have no compunction in transporting live horses hundreds and hundreds of miles across Europe just to slaughter the poor creatures there. World Horse Welfare have been fighting and fighting to get the despicable practice stopped. The meat would have been full of adrenaline from the poor animals dreadful journey, often without food, water and rest stops. Many break legs en route but no one cares

Some terrible things have been/are done done to animals. A butcher relative of mine relates how (not his father but competitors) would in the 60s inject bullocks with orange juice an hour or two before slaughter. Dispersed through the body the acetic acid would tenderise the toughest meat as it hung. Only problem was that the poor beast died in absolute agony. I wouldn't say no body cares, more that those who do it don't and the majority have no idea what goes on.
