Oh, and to those who thought I kept looking for a horse after I found the mare... That is false. Please do not assume things.
A very dear friend of mind showed me the gelding after I had made the offer on the mare. At the time, I thought the mare was it and great for me, and she REALLY is a great horse, Then I heard about this gelding from my friend and he just seemed to match me better, but I let it roll off my back at first and said I already found a horse. I would have never kept looking at horses after I made an offer because I figured the offer was a done deal, but my friend was persistent on checking out the gelding. I did it to humor her and found that HE was infact better for ME.
Long story short, the woman understood and accepted my apology with no hard feelings at all.
