Let's not limit our outrage to the slaughter of horses when more than a billion equally sensitive and wonderful animals are killed and eaten in Britain each year.
The vast majority of which are raised and even transported in abysmally cruel ways that would horrify even Attila the Hun.
Why would anyone choose to eat piglets who have had their teeth and tails cut off without any pain relief or chickens who have spent their lives in abject filth, unable to spread a single wing?
Especially when the shops are full of grains, pasta, beans, rice, nuts, fruits and more varieties of vegetables than there are meals in a year.
All animals, from horses to hens, end up in terrifying abattoirs. As Paul McCartney said: "If slaughterhouses had glass walls, everyone would be vegetarian."
