My mare is the result of farming pregnant mares to make a hormonal drug called Premarin. The results of these pregnant mares, the foals, are useless, so they often go to slaughter. The PMU farms have been getting shut down so it is not as big a business anymore but there are still a lot of premarin mares and foals out there for rescue. Just wondering if anyone else here has any? They are usually drafts and draft crosses, mine is a Percheron cross
Yes, I believe all the farms in the U.S. Have been shut down now, and a lot are getting shut down in Canada as well, so now a lot of the mares that were used are up for rescue too, hopefully the industry will be completely synthetic soon.
