So, Ice is officially leased out.

For as horrible as he was on the ground (antsy, nippy, trying to rush through the cross ties) he was PERFECT once we got into the round pen. Five minutes and a few circles, and she has a 100 percent different horse. We decided not to tie him and just let him ground tie, and he never moved, we even sat around and talked for a bit and he was great. The only trouble he gave us was with the bit, so we threw on my old hackamore and he was great. She trotted him for about 30 minutes, he ALMOST picked up a canter but he just didn't know how to work his feet right for it.

She said she was sold on him as soon as she saw him moving from the ground, and she was ready to write me a check and the end of the afternoon. I told her to wait until we got a contract written up. At any rate, I'm excited! He most certainly needs to work, and I think she'll enjoy working with him.
