What is a PMU mare?

PMU stands for Pregnant Mare’s Urine, which is used to make the hormone replacement drug Premarin. A PMU mare is a female horse that was/is used to produce urine for the purpose of manufacturing Premarin. Now that Premarin has been shown to have negative effects, most PMU farms have closed, leaving thousands of mares, stallions and foals in danger of slaughter if they aren’t purchased quickly. Numerous rescue organizations across the U.S. are trying desperately to save these horses and find them loving homes.
