ulliver frolics with other happy horses at Equine Voices Rescue and Sanctu- ary in Southern Arizona. But he and his equine pals are a few of the lucky ones. Born on a pregnant mare urine (PMU) farm, he was a byproduct of


the industry that produces hormone replacement products. Baby Gulliver was destined for slaughter and had Karen Pomroy not discovered his and his three herdmates’ plight, that destiny might have been fulfi lled as it was for thousands of unnoticed, unwanted foals born each year. Their perpetually pregnant dams are tethered in tie stalls, unable to move, turn or lie down, for up to six months each year, with catheters continuously attached to collect their urine, made richer by water deprivation. This was the birthplace of sweet Gulliver.
