Gee, thanks you guys LOL. Ya'll are a bunch of enablers!

MHFQ, I wasn't planning on taking the momma, since I have no idea how old she is. I wouldn't want to go to the trouble of rounding her up only to find out she was 15-20 years old. IMHO, that's just too old to try to mess with something unhandled. I was just debating about the filly.

Copperhead, I would certainly double check with the girls again, though they don't live on the property. One of them is somewhere down south in TX and I have no idea where the other one is...Colorado somewhere I think.

To be perfectly honest, I'm not sure how I'd catch her. I'd certainly have to ask Dad to help me out with that one. There are some old corrals out there but they are completely falling apart to the point that they couldn't keep our cows in 20 years ago. I can't imagine that they are in better shape now LOL. The only option may end up being to rope her...though I'm not sure that would be entirely safe between her momma and the herd stud. Good news is, Dad's got a lot of experience with stuff like that.

We'll see, I'll talk to Dad and see what he says. Heck, it may end up being next spring before I can actually get her so that I don't have to worry about feeding her all winter...especially since I'm not sure what hay prices will do. Plus, another few months of feral life won't hurt her, all the customer horses I'm dealing with right now came to me at 3 and 4 years old with never a hand laid on them, she couldn't be much different.

I will try to get out there here in the next couple of days and get a couple of pictures though, she really is gorgeous.

And ya'll are right, it's not like I really have anything to lose. She will probably make a decent little horse either for me or someone else...and if she turns out to be a nutjob or something, I can just take her back out there, no harm no foul LOL.

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/

Well Smrobs, I was going to try and be the voice of reason.......but could think of no good reason to not do it!

So, throwing in with the rest of the HF enablers, another vote to do it!

Did you expect any less?

I guess my reading comprehension sucks, don't blame you for not wanting the mare - didn't even think about age. We definitely need pics of this filly! I've no doubt your dad will have a good plan on how to get her.

For some reason I doubt you'll pass on challenge if it'll be a case. Please, share some pics when you have any (and breeding lines if they are known, of course).

P.S. I know my yearling was run into temp coral by several people when they were catching her. Unfortunately, I was not there to see it (probably was fun to watch). So will be very interesting to hear (pics too) how you catch this one!

My thinking is...when you go get this filly (because i know you really want to...) bringing a friend with her will make it much easier of the pretty little girl. So grab another one too!
