Foal Hernias

Hello, all!
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:

Here is an article on horse hernias. It has some good information I hope you find it helpful. I would check with your local vet to get an idea of what the cost would be if you decided to repair it.
