What's wrong with eating horses?
Findus beef lasagnes have been taken off supermarket shelves - after some of them were found to contain horse meat and we're not talking small amounts. Some of these lasagnes were ALL horse - and no cow. But thinking logically, rather than emotionally, what's wrong with that?
