Ray of Light Farm
Every year thousands of horses and donkeys are abandoned, abused or slaughtered. Ray of Light Farm serves as a safe haven for some of these animals by providing medical care, nutritious food, and retraining.
Many of these beautiful animals are then adopted into loving homes. Some very special ones go on to serve humanity as therapy animals. Living out their lives as permanent farm residents, these animals provide a range of little miracles, from giving inspiration and encouragement to an autistic child, to being a gentle and non-judgmental soul for a person suffering or dying from illness.
Ray of Light Farm is open to the public and its animals are available and happy to listen to anyone in need of a friend.
The horses and donkeys at Ray of Light Farm have an assortment of stories.
Many, but not all, are nurse mare foals and premarin horses and foals. Here is a brief description of each.
Premarin Horses & Foals
(PMU including Prempro, Premphase, Prempac, and Premelle)
For the production of the drug premarin, horses are kept continually pregnant in order for their urine to be collected. When they can no longer reproduce quickly they are sent to the slaughterhouse. Their meat is then sold for human consumption or dog food.
Some foals from these horses are killed immediately after birth and some of the females will be raised to be "Premarin mares" and join the production line. Many will be sold and sent to feedlots to be fattened for slaughter.
Nurse Mare Foals
A nurse mare foal is a foal who was born so that its mother might come into milk. The milk that the nurse mare is producing is used to nourish the foal of another mare, a more “expensive” foal. Primarily these are thoroughbred foals, though certainly not limited to the thoroughbred industry. The nurse mares biological foal is then discarded.
