Destined to be horse meat?

Laura Leon | Associated Press
''Pura Raza Espanola,'' or Pure Spanish Breed mares, belonging to breeder Francisco Jose Rodriguez run at La Yeguada de Cuatro Vientos ranch in Almonte, in the southern Spanish region of Andalusia. Barring an unlikely reprieve, purebred horses like these will soon be turned into horse meat for export. They are victims of a wrenching economic downturn that has wiped out fortunes, turned housing developments into ghost towns and left more than a quarter of the population out of work.
