I hope she understands it is a business of love. She will end up putting a lot of money into the horses and not recovering much back. It is tough to try to make any sort of living doing it, and not likely to work as a sole source of income as usually there is no income from it. The foals are easier to deal with than the worn out, broken down broodmares that are difficult to re-home. The trouble is that as long as the farms are able to make money from selling the foals it just helps fuel the fire of the business. Does your friend plan to deal with the foals mainly? Or the broodmares?
