Why Don’t We Eat Horse Meat?

When it comes to eating animals, why are we OK with some but repulsed by others? We eat cows, pigs, chickens… but not horses. Congress has taken a small step toward allowing horse slaughter facilities to open as early as September. It’s not a sure thing, but it has reopened a conversation about why we have certain meat taboos.
