To the Rescue
GOING THE DISTANCE FOR THE INNOCENTS: Heather Evans Rides!
On May 21, 2006 Heather Evans will leave Live and Let Live Farm on horseback,
and ride to Manitoba, Canada. She is doing this long distance ride to bring
awareness to the plight of innocent foals, mares and stallions that are being
Live and Let Live Farm was in the process of placing/adopting a newly closed Premarin farm's foals/horses in November 2005, which were instead sent to the auction where they were most likely bought up by killer buyers. Not the choice of the Premarin rancher, but by the controlling drug company's representatives. This new practice of Premarin foals/horses being sent to auctions where they are most likely bought up by killer buyers must be made public for all to know. Ranchers of the Premarins, as they are being closed down, are being told they can not work with rescues that instead they must send their foals/horses to the auction even though there are families waiting to adopt them.
Please support Heather in her effort to bring awareness to the senseless slaughter of PMU foals, mares and stallions by letting people know.
Heather is looking for sponsors to help make this possible.

"Purgatory or Paradise" - Photo exhibit by Artist Teresa Gladstone of Concord, New Hampshire aims at saving horses' lives
Numbered PMU foals - ready for auction
Photo by Teresa Gladstone
Are your hormones hurting horses?
Teresa Gladstone has put together an educational photo exhibit documenting the rescue of a group of pregnant Premarin mares and foals ("PMUs") from slaughter. She followed these horses from their arrival at Live and Let Live Farm horse rescue in Chichester, NH, to their new homes where they delivered their foals.
Teresa's works contain a sampling of her black and white prints of pregnant mares and foals that survived the 2004 purging of the pharmaceutical companies' production farms. They were saved through a coordinated effort by New Hampshire's own Live and Let Live Farm horse rescue program and United Pegasus Foundation of California.
At this exhibit, the issue of Premarin and PremPro, Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT), made from the urine of pregnant mares, and its negative impact on horses and women, is challenged; safe and effective alternatives are offered. New Hampshire Naturopathic Doctor, Sara Thyr, ND has teamed up with Teresa to educate women about using safe and effective ALTERNATIVES. The horses used in making Pregnant Mare Urine (PMU) drugs, Premarin and PremPro, are abused and then sold for slaughter, as are their 'byproduct' foals.
Teresa has prints of her work available for sale at these exhibits. A portion
of the proceeds from the sale of the prints will benefit the Live and Let
Live Farm and the United Pegasus Foundation.

2002 – National Institute of Health (NHI) abruptly halts 15 year study after only 4 years July 9, 2002 NIH publishes its shocking findings: combination hormone replacement therapies were putting women at increased risk of multiple serious diseases. These risks include (and are NOT limited to):
26% increase in breast cancer
41% increase in stroke
29% increase in heart attacks
100% increase in blood clots
22% increase in heart disease
2005, July – JAMA reports results of a study that shows that “more than half of the women who began hormone therapy to stop uncomfortable hot flashes and night sweats experienced those symptoms again once they stopped taking the drugs. The researchers advised doctors to explore alternative ways to treat menopause symptoms.” Marc Kauffman The Washington Post

I have a horse that has just tested positive for EPM but it has been weak and a little clumsy for about 4 months. She is a rescue horse so her rescuers just assumed she was weak from malnutrition. If she has had EPM this long, is she a lost cause? Is there someone I can email directly for information regarding treatment?
If you have not heard from Linsey Mclean, you are welcome to contact me directly. I work with her as a veterinary consultant. She has been busy with family lately and may not have had a chance to respond to your question.Amy Hayek, DVM,MA, CVA, CVC
