  • True. I'll give it that. But only if you don't think about it too hard. :-)

  • It's odd, though, how premarin is a fairly pretty word.

  • *weeping* I have found my people.

  • I wasn't referring to your great impulse to create a list of specific excrement, c_b. No, I was referring to your penchant for Words That Probably Shouldn't Be Spoken in Polite Company, But Around Us, Who the F*** Cares?

    Know what I mean?

    Besides, sionnach has created a great page here that's all about mare's urine. There's a place for you, my friend. :-)

  • Uhh... I'm deeply disturbed to think that everyone on Wordie thinks I have some kind of fascination with poop. It just isn't true.

    I ask you, in all sincerity, if you came across a word like frass, and then a word like guano--both of which cry out for a list of some type--if you would not think "gee, I wonder how many other words there are that are THIS SPECIFIC ABOUT WASTE"?

    And if you truly would not, then thank God someone cares.

  • I always did think it sounded a little scary--but then, that could be because I did know what it meant.

  • You know, if people knew that the word "premarin" actually meant PREgnant MARes' urINe, I bet they'd stop using it. It would scare me away.

  • Premarin is the subject of some contention. Animal rights activists claim that animal husbandry and urine collection methods used in Premarin's production cause undue stress and suffering to the mares involved.
    Additionally, it is proposed that there is an overabundance of poorly bred foals produced by Pregnant Mare Urine (PMU) farms each year. However, PMU horses only represent 0.01% of equines in North America http://www.naeric.org/about_whatis.asp?strOver=11. There has been an increase in the number of registered horses on PMU ranches with almost all horses now being registered stock. http://www.naeric.org/inc/graph3.pdf
    The vast majority of these purebred foals are sold for pleasure riding and driving. http://www.naeric.org/about_faqs.asp

  • Premarin is the commercial name for the compound drug consisting primarily of conjugated estrogens, isolated from mare's urine (PREgnant MARes' urINe).
