NH Charitable Horse Rescue Farm Holding Fund Raiser December 15 - 18th at Concord Walmart to Save Pregnant Mares Slated for Slaughter

Live and Let Live Farm, a charitable, non-profit, horse rescue shelter, located in Chichester, New Hampshire, will be holding a fund raiser December 16th - 18th, 3:00 - 6:00pm at the Concord Wal-mart. Money raised will help rescue mares slated to be slaughtered.

Premarin is a hormone replacement for women that is made from pregnant mares urine ( Since recent medical studies have warned of negative consequences of Hormone Replacement Therapy, demand for Premarin has fallen by a third.

A major pharmaceutical company that uses pregnant mares to make Premarin is downsizing, and closing one third of their farms. Because of this, 20,000 pregnant mares (40,000 lives) are scheduled to be sent to slaughter in January of 2004.

Live and Let Live Farm, is working with a rescue group, United Pegasus ( to get six of these mares saved. Cost for each pregnant mare is $1000, and this includes transportation, innoculations and purchase.

Live and Let Live Farm will have a table at Wal-mart, Route 106, Concord, December 16 - December 18th from 3 - 6pm to raise the $6000 needed to save these horses. Farm volunteers and ponies will be there, giving you a chance to learn more about Live and Let Live Farm and the work we do ( and the life-saving quest we are on.

If you are interested in adopting one of these mares, or would like to donate to our cause, please stop by the Concord Walmart Dec 16 - 18th, or contact Live and Let Live Farm Directly at or 603-798-5615. With your help, we can make miracles happen in the stable again this holiday season.
