I don't have one but I've had my eye on quite a few before.

Like Always pointed out, many farms don't produce wonky little foals that they just throw away. A lot of PMU foals are very well put together and they ask a fair amount of money to get one.

Dana, what a nice looking horse you have! :)

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.

Danastark, if you don't mind me asking, did you rescue him from Knights Bridge Farm in Canada? The only reason I ask is because a dear friend of mine aquired four PMU babies as yearlings from that farm and they are now going on six years old. For those who might not know, the farm rescued 80 some mares off a meat truck and over 50 of them were in foal, so the farm adopted out many of the foals and the rest went to live in Oregon at a sanctuary with their moms and many other rescued horses. These four horses are some of the best horses I have ever had the ability to be around. I love all of them. They are so sweet, and I can't wait for them to be started undersaddle!

I will share them. :)
Galahad and Bolero are actually half brothers.

Bolero, the dominant boy of the group.



Picasso, the clown!


Galahad, the most people oriented of the herd. I absolutely LOVE this boy!



And Andora, the Princess. She will stand for HOURS and let you groom or pet her.



And some playing pictures!
Andora, Picasso, and Galahad playing in the snow!


And the boys, being boys of course!





Okay, I am done now. Sorry for all the pictures! I just love to share these awesome horses! Because of them, I am a HUGE supporter of rescuing PMU babies and mares.

I have a PMU too! His name is Dozer, he is six years old as well... odd. Anyways he has come a long way since I got him last March! He use to run up and down hills and now he is okay with walking them, he has become more flexable, he has gotten smoother, and hopefully we will have his running away issue solved by next gymkhana season!

He is the big guy (18.2 hh) and the little brown pony is Bart(12.2hh) and they are best friends. Haha enjoy!

At the moment, I've got a PMU mare (Kenya) and her foal (Africa).
I have to admit they're got their problems, but all rescues do.
Both horses are angels around kids though!
Kenya is around 16- 18 years old now... We really aren't exactly sure.
And Africa is almost 2 now.
We got them from a horrible situation, where there was a lot of inbreeding going on... it was just, all very disgusting.
Unfortunately, we could only rescue Kenya and her foal. The man just wouldn't let any others go...
I was in love with this gorgeous massive colt, but he reconsidered.

Here are some pictures (sorry about the quality I didn't have a nice camera back then ).

By the way, the first picture was taken the first day that I went to the PMU farm.
The rest of the pictures are from sometime in the first month that I got them. :O I know- it took a while for me to get them out of there.
And to think that I was going to get them in the first place well, I'm happy that things ended the way they did! :)

Its was horrible. I was trying to take a colt out of there for the longest time, and I didn't end up getting him. I fought so hard... At least I got my two angels now!

Aha. Africa's 'show' name is Midnight Moon just for that reason. Thanks :) I agree she's prefect!
