They used to make soap from horse fat and glue from the hooves.
I am sure this still happens in foreign countries but i think there are better sources of ingredients in the states.

Is soap really made from Horses?
"The products which come from the rendered body are as follows:
Bone and blood meal- feed or fertilizer (it is high in nitrogen and calcium).
Stearic acid - goes to car tires.
Cartilage, tendons, hooves - produce a gelatin, and is used in products such as Jell-O, camera film, and canned ham gel.
Feathers and hide (known as "dry matter") - make up a protein mass at the rendering factory. It is turned into pellets to for animal feed."

Guess what you fools....
Horse byproducts ARE still used in the production of Glue, Geletan and soap as well as lots of other things
Nope. Neither is glue or gummy bears. They used to make if from their hooves, but that isn't done anymore.
thats just an old wives tale. 🙂 especially now that all horse slaughter plants are closed, this isnt even possible. people also say that glue is made from horses hooves, but it isnt.
edit: why did i get three thumbs down... i hardly said anything different than everyone else?
Noo... I wouldn't worry about that.
No it's not, and glue isn't either.
Nope. Don't worry. 🙂
no that is just some random thing someone made up
