This is the story of a foal born to former PMU mare Mystic. PMU stands for pregnant mares urine as the drug is produced from the hormones present in the mare’s urine. Premarin is a very common drug prescribed to millions of women worldwide as a hormone replacement therapy. The horses used to produce this drug are referred to as “PMU” horses, for short.
Mystic and several other PMU mares were rescued from a Premarin farm after the owner lost his contract to keep producing the hormone replacement drug, Premarin.
Mystic, Maya and Angelina were brought to Equine Voices while the other mares remained on the now closed Premarin farm. But they were all safe. Equine Voices Rescue & Sanctuary is financially responsible for these 15 friends of Mystic.
Mystic had her foal Kodiak, who was later adopted and renamed Odin which is the name of the Norse god of art, culture, wisdom and law who was handsome, charming and eloquent. Odin is definitely all that and living his new best life!
