smrobs, 40 horses is nothing. My paint came from the place with 80+ horses running feral (2 studs, mares, and of course bunch of babies every year)!

Since you are very experienced, in particularly with untrained ones, I'd say go for her if you like her so much. If she has a good confo and good mind I'm sure you can also always sell her down the road if you have/want to.

I say do it also, ! There isnt really a downside and I'm sure she would thrive so much more being with you then turned out in a pasture. I'm sure you'll be pleased with the outcome !

Jen, I'm another vote for do it! You've got the skills, why not? I'm assuming the filly on her side would be a personal prospect? I'd go for it, work the mare, sell her on, keep the filly for yourself. Worst case scenario, the filly doesn't grow into the mare you hoped she'd become, you could always start her and sell her on. If you've got the hay & the room, I'd say go for it.

I'd say do it. You already have permission from the landowners. I would probably ask the landowners again and maybe get something down in writing so they can't call the cops on you if you show up with a trailer.

Good luck catching her though. How do you plan on that? Looking forward to that adventure!

If you can catch her with no one getting hurt, sure go for it. Make sure your plan well thought out.
