Premarin farms

20,000 mares per year are used to produce Premarin. A pill that helps women with hormone, which 11 million women took this drug.

The horses are used for their urine and suffer terribly due to craming in small cages which they cant even move in and tubes that collect the urine scraping their legs. They are given barely any water because it effects the urine. They dont recieve veterinary care nor barely any food, most mares are never removed form the stall and allowed to grave.

If the horses fail to become pregnant, they are sent to the slaughter house. Their foals are taken from them at the premature age of 3 to 4 months.

Naturally they resist separation from their babies so they are often whipped, kicked, or beaten with an electric prod until they give in. The foals are sometimes killed or be raised to be a "premarin mare". But most will be sold to feedlots to be fattened for slaughter anyway.

Health problems common to mares in premarin productions: dehydration, hoof injuries, leg injuries, sores, lacerations, swollen joints, edema, liver disorders, kidney disorders, premature death.

We, the undersigned, demand that the drug companies, if they HAVE to use horses and there are no alternatives, then they must treat their horses kindly and give them the right amount of food, water, and a big enough cage where they can move around in.

They must not whip, prod, or beat their horses and if they do then they will be arrested for animal cruelty.

They must provide shelter and treat their wounds and medical issues.
