It is with a heavy heart that I write that our beautiful, beloved, Betty passed away on November 13, 2011 from complications due to colic.

Betty, 20, was a sweet-tempered, kind mare who had been very badly abused in her former life on the PMU lines…But over time, she came around and accepted affection and human contact. Betty really loved her life in a huge pasture she shared with six other mares, Abby, Sarah, Angie, Annie, Sophia and Bebe, all of whom were either mares from the same Canadian PMU factory farm that she came from or offspring born to rescued pregnant PMU mares. Betty will be sorely missed by all of us at Equine Advocates who loved her dearly.
