Our guests tonight are Susan Wagner, President & Founder of Equine Advocates, and Susan Kayne, creator of TV show Real Horse Rescues on ABC-WTEN, who will talk about the mainstream media’s poor (if any) coverage of horse meat in the U.S. food supply, over 90,000 PMU mares trapped in torturous conditions while having their pregnant mare urine collected in China, and other equine welfare issues.

Susan Kayne began creating equine media productions in 2003, and her signature series, Unbridled, aired for 10-seasons and earned multiple awards.  Her present day ventures include Real Horse Rescues on ABC-WTEN in upstate New York. Kayne has hosted shows for the Capital OTB Network, served as a feature reporter for Outdoor Life Network, and has given expert equine commentary for news outlets, professional panels, and educational institutions.  Her advocacy on behalf of thoroughbreds earned her a photo on Page One of the New York Times on 9/22/2012.

  1. I am sure that the mares in China are treated far worse than in the U.S. and the U.S. farms are bad enough. The U.S. must ban any shipments of these mares, its criminal. Furthermore the urine used to produce Premarin for pre and post menapaulsal women must be ban, it most probably causes cancer. Women are being lied to.

  2. It’s even worse when there are alternatives that don’t harm horses like this (although I’m sure they are tested on some poor creature). I wish people, instead of believing everything we are told, could realize that the do not need this stuff and age gracefully the way nature designed us. Very few women could not find an alternative, or even need to use it at all. It does present a risk of cancer.

  3. This is time for the international humane community to step in. It’s plain China wants to kill the World. They posion dog and cat food, skin dogs and cats while still alive and sell their trash on the open market. When is the US and the World going to wake up? We need to stop buying all their products. If you see a coat from China and the fur collar looks funky and the tag does not identify the fur complain to the store manager about its origination. Pass the word about Premarin and Prempro. I asked my doctor if she prescribed it. I them told her where it came from. Believe it or not half of the doctors have no idea of its origin. I tell women about this product all the time and have called Wyeth the manufacture of the drug. The cruelty in the World sickens me! Is it any wonder cancer still exists?

  4. Thank you for another excellent show. I always learn so much from listening.
    Here’s a good article about China and animal welfare

    China’s Rapidly Growing Animal Welfare Movement

    China has been in the news relentlessly this past year in relation to the mass slaughter of elephants and rhinos in Africa and Asia for the country’s inexhaustible demand of their tusks and horns. Comments to such stories often expose sweeping statements from people across the globe that all Chinese are cruel and heartless but, having lived and worked in China since 1985, I couldn’t disagree more.

    Operating Animals Asia’s bear rescue sanctuary in Chengdu, we see an astonishing level of intelligence and compassion in our Chinese directors and staff — and celebrate the brave Chinese welfare groups and individuals across the country who achieve unprecedented success against animal cruelty and exploitation.

    In many ways, the animal welfare movement in China is maturing far faster than it ever did in the West. Without any laws to protect domestic, wild and endangered species from abuse, the animals are seeing significant victories as a result of the rising internal movement to champion their plight.
