British  polar explorer Robert Falcon Scott took white horses 
along to the  Antarctic on his 1910-1912 expedition to 
become the first to reach the  south pole.  Unfortunately for 
Scott though, Norwegian explorer  Amundsen beat the British 
team in the race to the pole by about a  month.  Even more 
unfortunately for Scott's team, the whole team died  on their 
return trip back to their base.  No word on what happened to  
the horses though.

I understand that  they we delicious (Sorry Jan)

In Portland, Oregon (many years ago) Carne de la Equine (horsemeat) was  sold 
in Supermarkets.  I remember that my mother-in-law prepared a meal  with it 
as the main course.  It was a tough cut of meat and needed stewing  or 
braising.  The flavor resembled beef but I prefer beef (NY Strip  Sirloin) as the 
flavor is better.  Animals provide good protein no matter  the species.
