Not all PMU foals are useless. When I was a teen, we had two that we suspected were PMU babies, but no proof. The one went on to a local rodeo circuit and was a pretty good mount. The other was a nice paint cross filly who would have done great in the hunter circuit if I had known about it at that point.

Not to get into a debate or anything, but just saying, most PMU farms are regulated more now then they were previously. It would be a big contract to lose if a drug company decided that they didnt like the facilities or conditions of the horses.

Katesrider (Your name is Charles, correct?)--This is a case for almost all drugs. Not everyone can take the "real" version and need to take the synthetic, or vice cersa. It is all about reactions to the drug.

That's good to hear, I guess trying to find that solution would cost even more money and such, though. But I'm off topic of what the OP was asking.

So... To the OP, Um no I don't have any PMU rescues, but If I ever were to come across one I'd like to get one, that is if my mom allows.

Velvet, I was not at all saying they are useless, I was saying the farms considered them useless and would send them to slaughter, I myself love my mare, I have trained her in dressage and everyone loves her. I am sorry if you misunderstood me.

Katesrider, no worries, and they arent as common now as rescues because as mentioned, it is more controlled breeding now and they are selling the foals. I would certainly suggest a rescue horse though, it is a very good feeling to rescue!

Prior to getting my newest one, I had thought they were mostly drafts with an occasional QH here and there. Mine is a QH/TWH X, and he is a PMU rescue. He is now 6.
I thought they were getting pretty scarce tho-a lot less of them available than say, 5-6 yrs ago, at least from what I could find when I was looking for a new horse last spring. What I came across now tho were the nurse-mare foals....whole 'nother subject......

A lot of members have them on here. I won't give out her name, but someone I know has the most beautiful mare as a PMU ever. Ill try to see if she'll post. I absolutely adore PMUs. Good on anyone who buys one, they are phenomenal.

I know someone with three, all of them are paint draft crosses and are almost identical in colour, build, size, and temperment. I would love to get one someday.

Myth= Free/Cheap horses are expensive.
Indy was $150 we keep her in a pasture with a shed for free and she is brushed and fussed over dailey. Other then deworming and feet trimming she isn't costing us anything.

My Cody is a PMU rescue from Canada. I adopted him when he was 11 mos. Old as a draft cross. I was told he was 1/2 belgian and TB and would end up about 16 hds. But with further research, found out he is percheron/paint/TB and possibly some clyde and as he has grown, we think he is more like 3/4 draft due to his size (approx. 18 hds) and build. He is a wonderful guy, started out very skittish and fearful but came around quickly and now is hard to get rid of :) I do mostly trail riding on him but we're venturing into dressage now that he's 6 with some cross country jumping which he loves. The dressage is hard work, he's not really built for it but it will improve him overall so we keep at it.

He is super cute! Thanks for sharing! I don't see why he's not built for dressage, he looks fine to me for the lower levels
