Tittle says all! I will put up a poll mid January. There is no picture limit but your horse must be a PMU! Nothing else. Please include your horses name, age, and height. I will start up the contest with my entry.

This is Dozer, he is 6 years old and stands around 18.2hh. Enjoy!!

Here's my PMU-Buffalo Bill "Cody" from Ranch 1 in Canada, adopted from United Pegasus Foundation at 11 mos., now 5 yrs. old, approx. 18 hds., perch/paint/TB/clyde cross? Can't say enough good things about this guy. The whole family loves him, greatest personality. He's gorgeous in our eyes even though some might look down their noses at his Heinz 57 pedigree :)



All gussied up for a show-


Meeting a mini-donkey

My 12 yr. old riding him in his first dressage test!

Pregnant Mares Urine. It is used to make Premarin (or Prempro, or any of several other similar-sounding drugs), a hormone-replacement drug for women going through menopause. They use a lot of drafts, because they make more urine. It's not a lovely life for the mares (five-foot-wide stalls, anyone? Pregnant all the time for all of their lives...), and the foals produced through this system usually don't have real good lives either. Here's a link with more info: United Animal Nations : Campaigns : Premarin Awareness Campaign : About Premarin

^ Good explanation!
Danastark- It's weird that I have never seen your horse out and about! I live in Riverside area too! Have you ever seen the big PMU Willy that lives in one of the stables in the Yucaipa wash?

Seriously! What a small world. I've met a couple other PMUs but haven't heard of Willy. We live in the Woodcrest part of Riverside. I have 12 and 13 yr. old daughters who ride too. Kelly, my 13 yr. old loves to ride Cody. Where do you ride?

Mostly the Yucaipa equestrian center. I do gymkhanas and trail. I trail ride through the state park pretty often too. Willy cane from the same place as Dozer(don't know where that was) and he is around 19+ hands. I haven't seen him in person yet.

^ Really? She grew up at one? Did she like it?
yup, her whole family loves horses, and they kept very careful track of who was bred to who (so that there were no inbreedings)
and when she was really little she got to name all of them, lol.

PMU farms don't have very good reputations. Im glad they tried to keep every thing organized and safe.
ya, they definitly dont! thats why i was nervous to post that my riding instructor grew up on one :lol:
haha but ya, the hroses were actually their main priority and they were always sent to good homes,like the horses on this thread!:D
