I posted on the Equine Whopper thread that I like horsemeat and ate quite a bit of it when I lived in France.  For some reason Europeans like it and Americans do not.  The only problem I have with horsemeat is when it is listed as "beef" on an ingredients label. 
But then, my preferred red meat is moose......if they would start selling that in stores I'd be all set!

The cuts of horsemeat are the same as beef.......roasts, ground meat, chops, stew meat, etc. and it's cooked exactly like beef. 
I would like to try jellied moose nose.  They make it in Alaska and it's similar to headcheese.

Moose is good because they don't sell it in stores. It's courser and leaner than beef. The best thing about Moose is it's in it's natural state, man or woman for that matter hasn't re engineered it.. Just like the best tasting fish you will ever have is the one you just caught and gutted.

After reading all the news about horse meat lately, I can only wonder how much horse meat I've consumed in the small bistros in Paris.

I sorta live in the south but I have only had pork, beef and chicken.  Many of my friends who are hunters and otherwise have hunted and cooked beaver, coon, possum, deer and other wild animals.
 
Quite frankly, protein is protein and food beats the hell out of starving.  I have never been in the situation of starving but if I was, I probably would resort to any protein including insects and anything else.
 
There is a very high percentage of folks who reside throughout the world that consume all types of insects including dung beetles, ants, grasshoppers and many other insects.  I have never tried any of them but I have been to some roadfood places where the insects might have been a better choice than what they sold.  That also includes any other restaurants.
 
I ain't got nothing against horsemeat although it is not available in Knoxville.  Neither is dogmeat.
 
I sorta prefer a meat that has a lot of fat ripples in it.  I am not sure if horsemeat, deer, moose, dog, cat or any other animal besides pork does?

In case anyone's wondering, Although it doesn't affect me,
horse meat is not kosher!

There was an episode on Andrew Zimmern's Bizarre Foods last week in Alaska and they had Moose Nose and other fine treets!

I happened to see that episode of Andrew Zimmern.  What made me stop and watch was he was eating something with a woman that looked native Alaskan.  He was eating "Eskimo ice cream".  She made hers with fish, Crisco and wild berries but I have only seen it made with whipped seal oil (consistency of Crisco) and wild Alaskan berries.  Then he proceded on to the Jellied Moose Nose.  I made head cheese with my neighbors in France every year when they would slaughter their pig.  So the jellied moose nose sounds similar.

I'm a (fairly) adventuresome eater but I'm afraid I'd have to take a pass on the jellied moose nose.

No jellied moose nose for me. lleechef says it's like head cheese, and I can't handle that. On the other hand, I have eaten pickled moose nose. It wasn't that I really wanted to eat it, but there I was somewhere in the Arctic Circle with a Cree hunting guide who was offering it to me from his own stash, and I figured it might just be a good idea not to offend him.

I like Usinger's head cheese.  It's very smoky, with a profusion of textures.

I'm in 82 and I have eaten horse meat when I was a kid.
Horse meat was not rationed during WWII
In fact there was a meat store in Springfield Ma that only sold horse meat.  I remember that the sales were quite brisk.
I recall that the steaks were good
My mother would not eat it but my dad and I did

My grandfather Herman Smith who died at the age of 92 as a result of a car wreck made sousemeat which I sorta think is similar to head cheese?  He killed hogs every year at Thanksgiving which was a community event and usually assisted with about 20-30 neighbors.  I was very young but I did notice that there was activity around the springhouse where several of the male's would gather around and sip from a jug???  Must have been spring water?  I later found out that is was some real corn whiskey.  I had some later on in life and I must admit that it was pretty good.
 
After the pigs where killed, they would commence to make lard, can some pork, make sausage and boil the head where they made souse meat.  I have not had that in many years but I do recall it being very good on sandwiches.
