If you are more interested in just getting her to a better home, then go for it. However, if you are counting on making a profit, think again. You will likely lose money in the end, but she will be safe and in a home.
well, im going to say 2-4 days a week...rather. She has been offered to me for free. I offered this lady last year some help when I hauled her home from this ******ed person who "trained" her. She just wasnt sure what she wanted to do because the chic told her she wasnt rideable...I do want to help her its just I board and at 210 a month like you said...I highly doubt I will make anything from her but she will be safe from the meat man...

Well, so long as you are aware of the risk and the probable cost of taking her in, then it is all just a personal choice after that of whether you really want to take the chance on her.

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/
