He's not a stallion, I misunderstood. I do feel much better about that issue. We all have our bad days so I'm sure there will be those but overall he is very willing to learn from what I've seen. I went back out there yesterday and I'm very impressed and I hope it turns out as well as I'm hoping. The man selling him told me that the best thing to get to teach him all the ground work and manners is a book called Troubleshooting. Anyone heard of it? He says it will help you correct anything properly with a young horse.

Horses change lives. They give our young people confidence and self esteem. They provide peace and tranquility to troubled souls- they give us hope!

Sounds like you should go with the one you thought was a stallion then if you feel pulled toward him, and if he behaves nicely.

From what I've read, it seems like you really are leaning towards getting the stallion. It sounds like you really want him. I do agree with the others who say he should be gelded if you get him. Some stallions are great and well mannered, but they can be unpredictable... If you were not planning on using him for a stud, think it wise to geld him. Go with your gut, but use common sense with your decision. Good luck:)
