It is well known that the sacrifice of horses to Wodan was performed in ancient times, and that the meat was eaten in the feasts following a bluostar. The eating of horse meat was banned in Europe after the coming of christianism specifically because of its association with Wodan's worship. Modern American Heathens will now be able to resume this holy tradition of our ancestors!
To be sure some controvercy will ensue. In the United States horses are generally thought of as pets, icons, or are associated with racing but not with food. These notions will certainly raise the ire of people who hold romantic notions for horses that they lack for pigs, cattle, sheep, rabbits, and other livestock animals. Because of these complaints and because the number of slaughterhouses will be small, one can expect the meat to be expensive. But many predict that horse meat will soon appear on the shelves of grocery stores across the country, possibly taking up a small section like bison, goose and other less popular meat choices.

Döbringer's Fechtbuch (MHG “fight book”) written in 1389 describing German martial arts as taught by Johannus Liechtenauer. Note that Döbringer states that the art was already hundreds of years old when he wrote his treatise, indicating that the art came from arch-heathen times. Includes facing page New English/Middle High German translation. http://www.thearma.org/Manuals/Dobringer_A5_sidebyside.pdf
