Horse meat found at levels of up to 30% has been found in burgers in Ireland and the UK (in Tesco and Iceland in the UK). Pig meat contamination was also found. Was the horse meat even of human consumption quality? If you are religiously against eating pig meat or have an objection to eating horses (it’s not the culture of the UK or Ireland), this is highly offensive. It throws open again the question of ethical dealings in corporate manufacturing.
It’s difficult to see how such a thing could be accidental.
It is always safer to buy and consume fresh wholefoods.
Christopher Day MRCVS has been treating horses for more than forty years and has a special interest in their safe and natural feeding and nutrition. This eBook offers a simple-to-follow approach to providing your horse with a species-suitable, fresh and wholesome diet, which has brought health and welfare benefits to so many of his patients. In the author’s opinion, expensive and vigorously-marketed manufactured horse foods and supplements are not the best way to feed your horse for stamina, performance, musculo-skeletal health, immune resilience and a long, happy and active life. The horse is the archetypal vegan and thrives on fibrous foods. Christopher Day advocates feeding as close to Nature as one can, in this modern society. This eBook provides a simple guide to taking your horse’s health and well-being into your own hands. Your horse will be thankful for it, every day.
The horse is a magnificent and wild creature, yet serves mankind so well and so remarkably willingly. This is even more surprising when you think how many work with ill-fitting saddles, ill-fitted shoes, unsuitable diets and egotistical riders.
Thank heaven there are some humans who do their horses well.
Because of the amazing anomaly presented by the horse’s power and strength, bent to our will despite our treatment (some of it from ignorance, some from intent), a poem occurred to me . . .
Nice reports not only make life worthwhile, they also put a spring in your step.
Here’s a great one from yesterday, setting me up a treat for the weekend:
“Most gigantic difference in him – totally different horse – no longer so tricky – absolute joy to work with him now – brilliant!”
This a young and very talented dressage horse (in very experienced and talented dressage rider’s hands) who was proving almost impossible to train and would kick at his belly 20 minutes into work. Nothing that had been tried was helping. Seen on 10th July – chiropractic manipulation and homeopathy – report 27th July.
Have you ever been made to feel guilty because your dog, horse, cat or child is not vaccinated, thus making ‘herd immunity’ more difficult to attain and putting other folks and animals at risk? Be heartened by this myth-exploding item, which makes important reading.
