    In response to “Slaughterhouses: Hold your horses” (Dec. 2 issue):

    An animal is an animal, no matter how much you value it. How is eating horse different from eating cow? The claim that horses are an ‘icon’ falls short – should we stop eating cows because Hindus and some Kemetics worship cow deities? If you are going to eat meat, accept that you are eating an animal. It is perfectly okay to not want to eat horse, but we should remember the meat we eat comes from animals with their own inherent value outside of providing us with food. Value life equally, not based on which animal you like better.
