Has anyone adopted a PMU mare or foal?
I'm doing an assignment at school for an ethics class and my topic is ethical issues in the horse industry. Very broad, I know, haha...but I do need to present for a minimum of an hour so the fact that there is so much information regarding ethics in the horse industry is actually helpful.
Anyways, one section I am doing is the PMU industry. The nature of the project is to present the pros and cons and find a solution. One of the so-called solutions to the 10,000 or so foals (at least) born is slaughter because there aren't enough homes for all the foals and they are often times grade horses. What I was hoping to do is get a story of someone who has adopted a mare or foal and is competing successfully. So if anyone has a story (and pictures! Or even better, a video of the horse in the show ring!) that would be very much appreciated!
