From the Back Cover
The foals' story begins from birth with their majestic mares on the vast plains of Canada. The mares are kept pregnant because their urine will then contain estrogen, a vital ingredient for a hormone replacement therapy drug called "Premarin". The Pregnant Mares' Urine, PMU, is often collected in harsh conditions for the mares and when the foal is born it is frequently considered an innocent but disposable by-product of the process. What happens next to the foals, who might otherwise go to slaughter, is the heartwarming subject of this book. What happens to people along that rescue path, is the magical soul of this book.
Uplifting, with gorgeous photography, Equine Angels will inspire, delight, and teach life lessons through the wisdom received when connecting with these noble equine souls.
Enjoy the rescue journey and see how "rescues rescue us"!

About the Author

"Rescues rescue us" - is a favorite saying of Frank Weller, author of a magnificent book that any horse lover will treasure and enjoy for years to come. Visually stunning color pictures by Donna Cloutier display the intimate lives of horses on nearly every page - herds running through misty pastures, awesome stallions, touching portraits of mares and foals, and adoptive families interacting with their beloved animals.
The book features many inspiring stories of PMU horses, real life rescues, and the rewards and challenges of equine adoption. The EARS organization, founded by Frank Weller, the author of this book has saved hundreds of mares and foals from slaughter that would otherwise be disposed of as by-products of the Premarin hormone replacement industry.
"Equine Angels" is a testimony to courage, kindness, reverence for life, and devotion to horses - love comes shining through on every page. This book would make a wonderful gift for any horse lover. The book is available on Amazon.com. If you would like more information about the EARS organization, check out their website at foalrescue.com.
