Can the industry be stopped?

February 27, 2009 | By Tina

Hello. I 1st heard of PMU foals thru United Pegasus in CA and was just appalled. People just don't believe me when I tell them this is where Premarin comes from. Is anything being done to stop this? I've talked w/other people who say they buy the babies direct so they aren't sent to slaughter which is great but what abt the problem of mares being impregnated and standing all day. I can't really wrap my head around how this never really got any attention. Anyone have any thoughts, etc? In my area, you see more Thoroughbreds and Standardbreds going to auction/slaughter because of the tracks and breeding farms but I just wonder if there are any steps being taken to stop the farms in Canada. Or are there farms here in US too? I hope not ; -( Just very sad!
