 Hungry enough to eat a horse? by Don Chance Issue #88
That horse meat could come in handy in times of serious and unplanned need is almost secondary to the fact that there’s absolutely nothing wrong with eating it as often as desired in non-survival situations, too.
Nutritionally, horse meat has around 40 percent fewer calories than the leanest beef, while supplying 50 percent more protein and as much as 30 percent more iron; and horse fat is considered an excellent health-conscious deep-frying alternative, especially for delicately-flavored foods that are easily overpowered by heavier oils.
Horse meat can be safely kept in the refrigerator for no more than a couple of days (about the same time as hamburger) and up to four months in the freezer (as opposed to about six months for hamburger); though thorough vacuum-packing before freezing does extend storage life.
