Tala was a PMU foal, a by product of collecting pregnant mare urine (PMU) for the manufacture of Premarin, an estrogen hormone replacement drug. While the pregnant mares used for harvesting the urine are confined and treated in a controversial manner, their inevitable foals are an unfortunate result of this process, and unwanted, often slaughtered if not rescued. Tala, is one such rescued foal, living happily. With her sweet face, gorgeous wavy mane and tail and calm personality.
