Summer is a beautiful paint mare, 20+ years old.  Her adoption fee is negotiable.

Summer was very thin and nursing a foal when she was impounded in August of 2013. She has gained weight now and is sound and healthy.

We tracked down her history from her brand, and learned Summer spent most of her life as a PMU mare.  She is now in her early 20s and while she is easy to handle on the ground, she is not broke to ride.

She is good for grooming and foot handling. Her teeth have been floated and she’s up to date on vaccinations.

What is a PMU Mare?

“Pregnant Mare’s Urine” (PMU) mares are impregnated specifically for urine collection during pregnancy to produce Premarin.  Premarin is a hormone replacement drug that has been found to be dangerous for women.
