Lucky! You can definitely feed it to the dogs, that's actually what they used to feed dogs "back in the day." I think it was Beverly Cleary who was the author of the books about Henry Huggins who fed his dog, Ribsy, horse meat from the butcher. Pretty cool, if you ask me :smile:

I can't tell, or I'll be in contempt.

Yes, feed it! But don't use it as the only source of protein for your dog. Horse meat contains 25% less fat, nearly 20% less sodium, double the iron and less cholesterol than high quality beef cuts. When compared to ground beef 25% less fat, 30% less cholesterol and 27% less sodium. Horse meat is hard to obtain in the US. It is illegal to purchase in NY, so I'm out of luck!
