More than 100 PMU
ranches lost their contracts in 2003 and another 30 ranches lost their
contract in 2005. When these ranches closed, their mares and foals were in
dire need of homes. We worked with the United Pegasus Foundation to find
homes for the Premarin mares, foals, geldings, and stallions. Most of these
horses are of draft and Quarter Horse bloodlines.
There are thousands of horses in the PMU
program that need to be saved! We adopt out as many as we can.
You can find pictures of the horses we are adopting out under the link
above. The ranchers use the mares for urine collection; and when that
option is eliminated, they want to get rid of them as soon as possible.
These horses will end up at auctions and slaughter houses if we do not save
them. The ranchers are only willing to hold them for a limited time to
allow us to purchase them. Please help us save these horses. These horses
are coming from Canada and it will take a lot of money to purchase them from
the farms, get them over the border, transport, vaccinate, and care for
them. Please help us find them good homes!!!
