Daily Review Preserving Peruvian history: "The first exportation of Peruvian Pasos to the United States was in the late 1950s and early 1960s. During the agrarian reform of the late 1960s, the Peruvian government dismantled horse farms, and some of the best horses were killed or eaten by starving peasants." For journalism students, this is an example of relying on one source who has a political angle to lay on the story. I have never heard of hungry peasants eating Pasos horses. They may have been hungry, not dumb -- they would have known you could sell a Pasos horse and buy several pigs. The main source was Juan Pardo, a trainer who was "kicked out of the country in 1969."
