Kat asks:

I am curious as to how and why the horse became a part of Kazakhstan cuisine, and why it has remained thusly. Am I correct in thinking it was because of the nomadic existence of times past - survival in the cold winter out on the steppe and in the mountains?

Also, do you offer any prayers over the life of the animals you kill for food? That specific activity is an integral part of many spiritual practices here in the US and Great Britain - so that the animal killed is remembered and honored even as it is consumed for sustenance.

Expert's answer:
You are right, nomads, ancestors of Kazakhs, had plenty of horses and that's why they were used not only for transportation purposes. You can find more info about the issue in this article.
