    I buy 'pony carrots' from our local farmshop. I'm beginning to wonder what they're made of!
    They are the carrots which are overgrown- cut in half the core is much larger than the flesh and while just as nutritious, it is crunchier and far less tasty.

    When not fed to livestock they get sold ideally for stews and MRE*/ value range type products.

    * having eaten MRE's its rude to compare them to ready meals in supermarkets, MREs are much better.

      The health risks of eating horse meat have been rightly raised recently, particularly for horse meat of suspect or unknown origin.

      However the regulated, inspected, tested & pasteurised products of the cow also have side effects. Some years ago I had to give up beef & dairy products: Within months my body hair was much more noticeable and within days long-standing, mild, sinus problems disappeared. Dear reader, abstinence from the products of the cow just might make you better!

      Cheers!

        There's no particular health risks in eating horse meat, or any other meat.

        However, there may be health risks in eating any kind of meat if animal was given whatever medicine or substance, or was otherwise in poor health.
        Horses bred for human consumptions are no more (and no less) risky than cows, sheeps, pigs, etc. bred for the same purpose.

          Whether there are health risks in eating horse meat or not, the consumer has the right to know exactly what he is eating.

          Years ago in Corfu on holiday I ordered a steak, it had a sweet taste and I queried it only to find out it was horse meat. I didn't touch it.

          I know there are plenty of people that would eat it, but come on guys - lets have a bit of respect for ourselves in the fact we should not allow suppliers to get away with hoodwinking us. This is outrageous.

              They need to realise the benefits.

              Horse is sweeter than cow, so they can reduce the sugar content of lasagne.

              Do you suppose there's a market for Premium New Forest Burger, marketed as My Lidl Pony?

              I once brought a hunk of horse back from Brittany. My vegetarian live-in landlord had a fit.

                Think that dead cows are much more likely to have had female hormones pumped into the to increase milk yields thus leading to less hair on men (& moobs, although I didn't/ don't..) whereas dead gee-gees almost certainly not.... (well, not those hormones...). If you look (my wife tells me...) at young men these days on't beach they seem to have almost no chest-hair... weird....I reckon due to moo-cows... &.....

                Some people (eg me..but I gather it is quite common) appear to have particular response (sinus...) to cow products... there are no doubt other peoplem with other common-ish responses to horse-products...

                        It would be easier if we changed our laws about horse-meat.

                        A simple referendum on " horse meat, Yay or Neigh".

                          It's such a waste that they withdrew the burgers that were found 100% horse meat... Just put a 'horse' sticker' on top of 'beef' on the package. Problemo solved.

                          Artful's comment made me have a brilliant marketing idea: Pure bull or stallion meat burgers, guaranteed to contain no whiny female hormones. Buy one, get a voucher for a pack of lager. Sponsored by a football club.

                          This is going to make millions.

                              Faecal contaminants in ice cubes are probably the least of your problems in fast food outlets. If you knew what goes into some of the food you would not touch it, let alone eat it.

                              Freezing bacteria doesn't often kill them, cooking them has a better kill rate.
                              Essentially, people need to wash their hands properly and they don't.

                              You're meant to wash them while you sing happy birthday twice (slowly) so you do it long enough.
