    salaam, I was having a conversation with someone and they said horse meat is halaal to eat. Is this true? Was there an ayat about eating animals with cloven hoofs? Because a horse doesn't have cloven hooves right? Or... well, I'm confused. I was under the impression that its haraam.. (Well, I'd never eat a horse!! eww!) This puts a whole new spin on the expression "I'm so hungry, I could eat a horse"!
