For the LOVE of Horses
LOVE of HORSES began by rescuing baby horses considered a by-product of the PREMARIN* industry. Premarin is a hormone replacement drug made from the urine of pregnant mares .. thus the name PRE (pregnant) MAR (mares) IN (urine). Gestation period for horses is usually 11 months. During that time the mares urine is collected to create Premarin. Once their babies are born they are weaned from their mothers at about 4 months so their moms can get pregnant again in order to start producing more hormone laden urine for the drug. Offspring goes to auction where they are sold for meat. We have had the privilege to support the amazing heroic work of EQUINE ANGELS RESCUE SANCTUARY and its founder Frank Weller
Over the years we have expanded our reach out to rescue by working with a fairly young local organization "13 HANDS RESCUE"
