1. Horses from Canada are being transported to the US and asking prices for a PMU horse is between 500 (rarely in fact from what I've seen) up to almost 2000 EACH. Not all the horses are quality registered horses either. Grade half draft half what evers are included in this. People who buy/rescue ARE supplementing the income of the PMU farmer. Because now due to the recents studies that have shown the possibility of women developing cancer from the drug. Demand for the drug has dropped so the farmers are not getting AS much income as they used to from the drug companies, BUT they are making more on the sale of their horses due to the publicity. 2. People keep complaining about the 'unnecessary" slaughter of all these extra horses in the USA, BUT at the same time we are importing hunders to thousands of PMU horses FROM canada every year instead of taking care and finding homes for the unwanted horses in the USA. I can buy hundreds of navajo reservation mustangs for 60.00 for foals up to about 350 for adults. and these are starving horses who WILL go to the killer here in the USA because people want to import a so called rescue horse from Canada insead. 3. By getting in with rescue organizations and by applying that sympahy card, " will be sent to slaughter if not sold" or "Saved from slaughter", the PMU farmers ARE getting your money to support their continued rampent breeding. 4. People keep conplaining about all the unwanted horses and unnecessary extra breeding of horses and yet the PMU farmer can logically keep breeding every single mare every single year to make a drug that is going out of favor and no one complains about their rampent breeding?? Kind of a double standand in my book, Support the people who keep breeding more and more horses each year because they make money on a product of that animal and they " don't really care what happens to that animal" and yet people don't want to support that small local breeder to may only have one or two quality foals a year and who cares what happens to their horses. 5. By NOT buying a PMU horse you make it less profitable for the farmer and therfore make it possible for them to reconsider their breeding objectives.
