I'm going to have to be another enabler! DO IT! With your experience and how gorgeous she sounds, hopefully she'll make one heck of a horse. You better start a checklist too. Now we NEED, PICTURES, and A VIDEO OF THE ROUNDUP. Better get on it. ;) Good luck!

I totally understand your wanting to wait until spring to go get her, but I would worry about her getting knocked up. When do horses start going into heat?

Either way, PICTURES!

ROFL, I seriously doubt I'll be able to get video of the roundup. With them being on so much land, there will no doubt be a fairly long chase. I will definitely go out either today or tomorrow and try to get pictures. It's difficult though, as there are so many places in that pasture that a vehicle can't go and I am very leery of taking a saddle horse out there by myself. I would hate to get Dobe into a fight with a herd stallion.

KV, no idea on bloodlines. I'm sure some ancestor of hers was probably registered at some point but I never knew what they were and that would have been many generations ago.

Now you guys are just getting me more and more excited to try to get her LOL.

Ricci, I don't think mares can really get pregnant until they are nearing 2 years old (can't say for certain though since I'm not terribly experienced with that part of it). If she is as old as I guessed, she would still be not quite a year come next spring so her being bred is unlikely.

If (when) I do get her home, the first thing she'll do is be introduced and penned with Dobe. He's an excellent father figure and he'll make sure she stays respectful and protected. He's taken great care of both Rafe and Taz when they were babies.

I say do it! Catching her would be half the fun :)

If you waited until the dead of winter when the feed gets hard you could build a trap with good panels and bait it with some alfalfa hay. We have done this for wild cows...it might work for horses. If you build the trap in the shape of a cowtrack and make it where they can get in but can't come back out you might get her caught. Then you break the panels and back a trailer to the hole and see if you can run her in. Or rope a hind foot like how you load a bull?

I may have to see if those corrals are somewhat salvageable. If I can get a blind set up there, then I wouldn't have to haul as many 65 lb pipe panels out there.

I'm just evil like that. I spent too much time with the pups this evening LOL. I'll go out in the pickup tomorrow and see if I can get close enough to get some really crappy pictures.
