In Memoriam

PANSIE   (2006-2018) Pansie was a Belgian mare draft horse, loved by all who met her. Pansie was the true example of the “Gentle Giant” She didn’t know that she was 18 hands high and weighed 1800 lbs. She was a PMU foal. Pregnant Mare Urine is used in the creation of Premarin, a man made replacement hormone for humans. Although we do not object to its use, we do abhor the method used to collect it. Mares are kept perpetually pregnant and stalled 24/7 for urine collection. As soon as possible after the foal is born, it is removed from the mother and thrown in with other foals until they are sold. Her previous owner purchased her and gave her a loving home for 8 years. Pansie was donated to us is 2014, and made a difference in the life of many volunteers and children with her huge heart and gentle soul.
