Yeah, it is just SO sad what they do to those horses. They found that their urine is bad for women so now they are selling them and guess where they go? Killer auctions.

I am going to raise money for some ladies so they can purchase them and they will be in the best of care. I hope as many of you as you can can help rescue one of these poor horses!

My friend bought a PMU foal a year ago. It's been in training, and is such an amazing little horse. She actually got what we think is a quarter horse cross (not a draft), and she is the nicest little mare.

It is used in medication for woman gonig through menopause.
Premarin (the name brand of the drug) is/was also prescribed to women who had a full hysterectomy (removal of their uterus and ovaries). My mom struggled with the need to take Premarin (once she found out how it was made, she tried to go off of it and was terribly miserable). She was very happy when the generic drug came on the market.

As I understand it, the urine is still collected but the mares are bred to nice warmblood horses and the babies produced are known as 'Canadian Sport Horses', and a very nice breed too. They're very versatile and sought after for all around showing. I mean, any pregnant mare will produce hormonal urine when she's pregnant, so why not make the baby worth something too.

For that reason, I didn't think it was so much of a problem anymore. Also, the fact that premarin has been discredited as a viable medication.

I ish I could actually make it out west to purchase one of these eautifull horses. There are a couple of buckskins I look at every day and wish i could bring home here to NY. If any are available once I have my own land, I will definately open up my doors to any that need homes.

If you know what you are looking for, you can get some really nice looking PMU foals, you just have to be aware that buying one of their babies you are supporting their unneeded breeding.

A synthetic version of the drug has been in production for years now so those farms are no longer needed but the money is so good that many farms will continue to stay in production.

I agree ride4life. It really is no different than adpting a dog from the humane society. Unfortunately, these people just don't know when to stop breeding and it leaves it up to the rest of the people to give these horses a good life. We can only hope that with the use of this medication declining, they will stop breeding.
