Question Advice on sarcoids

Me and my sister are looking to buy a horse, and so far we have looked at loads and not found anything we like..

We went to see a 15'2 6 y/o bay mare and have both fallen in love with her, she is perfect in every way and exactly what we are looking for.. BUT

She has two sarcoids on her chest.. The owner has never had to treat them and they have not changed or caused any problems in the time she has owned her..

Although I am worried; is she worth taking the risk? how likely is it that she will get more? Would u buy ur dream horse if it had sarcoids?

I have had some people telling us to avoid, so would be really grateful for your opinions and advice! Thanks

dont worry hun i have a horse who used too have them
you have options you can do
have them frozen off
band tied round them
surgically removed
