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 slaughtered.
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.
Thank You

"Purgatory or Paradise" - Photo exhibit by Artist Teresa Gladstone of Concord, New Hampshire aims at saving horses' lives

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.

Do you know if non-organically grown oats and barley crops sold for animal feed have much pesticides/herbicides applied to them? I have been wondering how safe they are for goats and horses, and would rather buy organically grown, but there is quite a price difference!
Admin:
Typically with standardly grown feed, they or the ground they grown in has been treated at one time with a pesticide or herbicide, which remains in the soil for several years and taken up by the plant when it growns.
Yes organically grown typically means a higher price from my experience, and thatis usally becuase the cost to become and remain certified, along with cost of non GMO certifed seeds.
