I'm looking at adopting an Arabian filly, and she's free from the owner.. okay, well, almost free - problem is, she has a hernia that needs to be looked after. I was wondering what your opinions are on this; should I be leery about adopting a filly with a hernia? What kind of cost am I looking at for the surgery?
I have owned horses before, so I am not new to the whole thing (I shouldn't be, after having shown for 14 years!) but I've never dealt with this before, so any input would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance!
P.s. This is the filly:
