Ok, we made the swap and even better we are going to live with the gelding for a week before we have to make a final decision. We will let him adjust for a while and then get on him and see how it goes. Wow! It has been a cray week! I will keep you all posted!

Wow! What a difference a horse makes! Today was our first time to ride Elvis. (My daughter has already named him) :) It was like going from the Fred Flinstone car to a Rolls. He goes when you tell him he quits when you tell him. Stops on a dime (wasn't ready for that) and turns great too. I was told that he went to Tarelton state with a girl so I am wondering if he ran barrels. Not that we are anywhere near that. I think he is going to be great. We are also going to be taking lessons as soon as school is out in June.

So, while 2 days ago I was super frustrated and ready to quit altogether, now I am happy and feeling like we are on the right track. Thanks for your help. The vet will be out this week. Any suggestions as to things I should be looking for over the next couple of days before the make the final deal?
