Giddy Up!Horse burger anyone? Bug and Bun and a random fella eating horse meat burgers in Slovenia.
Am not sure how they tasted but will need the low down when I get in touch with them next. Ah the adventures of summer travel.

From Wiki:
Horse is commonly eaten in many countries in Europe and Asia. It is a taboo food in English-speaking countries such as the United Kingdom, the US, and Australia; it is also taboo amongst the Romany people and in Brazil.

Horse meat is not generally eaten in Spain, although the country exports horses both "on the hoof and on the hook" (i.e. live animals and slaughtered meat) for the French and Italian market; however, horse meat is consumed in some Latin American countries such as Mexico.
It is illegal in some countries.

Am not sure how I feel about it, we do eat cows and pigs so why not horses? Am sure it tastes just like chicken ;)

Giddy up!

As a English born and bred Slovene I feel compelled to leave a comment on your blog after a friend sent me the link.
The 'horse' that is actually used in cooking (at least in most European countries) is not your classical riding horse, but actually a specific breed that is only used for meat. It is more like a cow than a horse. It even tastes like beef just ever so slightly more gamey.
