Here is the PMU mare that my old trainer rescued and I part owned. Since my instructor has an injury that doesn't allow her to ride anymore I completely broke her and she's now doing dressage! This was all after she had her foal. Her name is Winter, she's a 17.2HH gray draft, and her foal is Duncan, who later shedded out gray like momma. I haven't seen them in GOD knows how long =[ She's absolutely the sweetest mare I've ever met, and even though she'd been barely handled and came terrified of people, she learned to trust so quickly and would never hurt a fly.

Gorgeous horse.

For the record, not all PMU farmers are idiots. A large portion of what you hear is grossly exaggerated by foundations like PETA about already illegal practices in Canada. Much like how they try to tell you slaughter is bad by showing you Mexican slaughterhouse videos, which are nothing like American slaughter houses.

There are always bad apples, but I live in Manitoba and have several friends who do or did (funding was severely cut in recent years) PMU farming and the horses were never treated like you hear horror stories about. It's a sad reality that many get culled, but most I know do their best to breed registered stock and maximize the chances of homes.

I hope God tells her to smash her computer with a sledgehammer.

This is Jasmine, our 14 yr old PMU mare. I bought her at 9 yrs old from a dressage barn that claimed she was untrainable. She now does trail rides, lessons, and works cows. She is everyone's favorite horse to swim with and great with kids. She is a draft/pony and is 14.1 hh.

I would love to get a PMU draft someday. I think that would be so cool.

I agree though, not all PMU farmers are totally bad, a lot of them actually breed some pretty nice horses that are registered with some of the top registeries. Many of them want the best for the resulting foal. While I don't like the practice, I think a few bad apples have kinda ruined it for the rest of the PMU farmers.
