Study feeding meat to horses

This sounds cruel, and it is. But I have to ask someone. A long time ago when I was first starting to question whether it was in fact healthy for humans to eat meat, I remember stumbling across a study done for a long duration, months, years? Anyway, it was a study where they fed meat to horses to see what would be the effect. It wasn't 100% of their diet, only a portion. Don't remember how much exactly % wise. So they were still getting oats and stuff to eat as well. But I remember some of the results. Facts that stuck out to me, one, the meat had to be cooked so that they could digest it. Two, they developed a craving for it. At first they didn't like it but after a week or two (maybe less?) they craved it over their normal food, the grains and grass. After the study was completed they killed them and autopsied them to find that they were in the early stages of heart disease, plaque was building up in their arteries.

I mention this because I wanted to find it again, but suspiciously I cant seem to find that study, or any other study for that matter where they fed a partial meat diet to herbivores long term. SURELY there are studies out there where people have done this! But it seems awfully strange that I can not find any. I'm suspecting cover-up by the industry? Has anybody ever heard of this?

They must have disguised the meat very well because horses are very careful of what they eat because they are unable to throw up. (As compared to dogs who eat about anything).

Humans are omnivores, and we're also predators. We are meant to eat meat. It's not supposed to be such a huge percent of our diet though, and we can survive just fine without it.
Also, it's not meat itself that is bad, it's how they fed and raised the animals the meat came from. Bad food and living conditions obviously leads to unhealthy meat.
And lastly, you can not look at a study where they fed meat to freaking herbivores, of course they're going to get sick from that, they aren't omnivores.

Meat does a carnivore good!
Horses are herbivores.
Feed cats a diet heavy in grains and they'll also suffer
