    The U.S. is bringing horses to be slaughtered in Mexico right now! The conditions are horrific, abusive and unsanitary! Also the regulations for selling the meat insists that the meat has no chemicals or hormones in it. There is no way to tell. So, I think horse meat should be banned everywhere!

      Thank you Charlene. I have heard how horrible the situation is in Mexico. This is so distressing. Absolutely horrific.
