Take Heart!
Horses: Food, Companions… Both?

Alex Brown, writer for the New York Times, points out the ethical inconsistency of our treatment to horses. Americans see horses as domestic animals for the most part, although some of these animals end up being food. However, their flesh is not even eaten in the U.S. but exported to Europe. Brown also shares what he experienced and witnessed when he visited the Sugarcreek Livestock Auction in Ohio that hosts its weekly horse and tack sale, which gives the reader a peek to what most people don’t get to see.

Please visit Some See Companions, Some See Food:
God’s animals, depending where they are born, are seen as food, pets or both.  Clearly, these man-made categories reflect our double standard based solely on our benefit. The inconsistency of our treatment to animals around the globe sheds some light about our lack of clear ethics in relationship to other species. When we apply Jesus’ teachings of compassion, mercy and love onto all Creation, then we are able to see God’s animals for what they really are: celebratory creations of a benevolent and loving God!
