PMU Mare

Here at the ranch we have adopted a former PMU (Pregnant Mare Urine) mare. These mares are used for their urine to make synthetic hormone replacement, and these mares are treated very poorly--kept in a pen all of their lives, catheterized and in a constant state of pregnancy.

The babies are soon taken away from the mom and killed.

So we have adopted "Honey" and she is very afraid of people at this time, but we will love her and work with her and keep you updated on her progress :)

She knows there are treats in that bucket :)

Okay...this isn't so bad.....

She is a little unsure. She preferred when he was sitting.She is very tentative and head shy, but does like the treats. Needs about 200-300 pounds more on her, so she is in a good place here on the ranch:)

Our natural progesterone cream is made from plant based hormones--so you can feel good about using it, and we will keep you posted on Honey's progress.

What a beautiful, warm Colorado day. Hard to believe we were under blizzard conditions less than a week ago when it is 70 degrees out today. Here is Megan out sunning in a wagon.

and here is our Natures Light shop---no snow left :)

Laurie is going to spray her Friesian mare with some SOS-natural pain relief spray for animals...Franca has a sore hoof.

Happy Birthday

Yesterday my son Charlie Jr. (12) said he wanted to make his dad breakfast for his birthday. So when my husband woke up this morning my son had scrambled eggs, with hot sauce and toast with my homemade jelly on it. He was so surprised. He said his eyes filled with tears. What a sweet present from our son--one he will never forget:)
Happy Birthday Charlie Sr. :)
