    In the condition he is in there I would pay maybe $500. (US)
    He really only has basic training, and probably could only be used as a trail horse and pet. He is unregistered which brings his value down significantly.

    If you cleaned him up, and put a bit of weight and muscle on him, I think you could advertise him around the $1000 to $1200 mark, depending on how the market is in your area. Also be careful how you write when you place your add, and make sure you are labeling him correctly, ie. Saying he is a leopard appaloosa when he clearly isnt.

    Another idea...dont take any pics with barbed wire in them. Most prospective horse owners might be suspicious or wary of a horse coming from that enviorment

    This is a hard question because everyone likes different things. For instance, Gingerrrr said the exact opposite of what I was going to say.

    I think that you should maybe get some action shots as well.

    Also, the fact that he is not registered probably will bring the price down quite a bit...

    Other than that, he's a cutie and around me $2000 is almost a steal. I'm not sure about the prices where you live, but I would say keep the price where it is.

    I really like that first picture of him, but like others said I would also add an action picture. I think you could pull it off if you put some more weight on him. I know people around here would pay thousands for a nice safe kid horse.

    I just want to point out that there is nothing leopard appaloosa about that horse. He is a fleabitten grey. Leopard appaloosas and fleabitten grey's are two different colors. Also, with the market being the way it is, and him being swaybacked, I would not try and ask over a 1000.00 for him. If you are going to market him online or where ever, I would agree with some of the others on here and probably get some action shots of him and lose the winter photos.

    You should go down to the horse classified section of the forum. There is a thread on how much people have paid for their horse. That might be helpful for you .

    Personally, I paid $1200 for a good looking 11 yr old grade Qtr mare that was very well broke and sound. (my 11 yr old daugher is riding her).

    I wouldn't even consider $2000.00 for yours (not trying to insult!, just being honest)

    $2000 just seems so unrealistic. He definitely needs some groceries on him before he goes to a new home. Him not being registered doesnt help matters, I do agree. Horses at auctions are going for peanuts, and here they are asking $2000 for this horse? I wouldnt pay more then two hundred for him. That's just me though....

    I have to agree. I wouldn't pay more than $200 for this horse either. He needs a lot of weight, and does not look to be in good condition at all. I am currently trying to sell a 10 year old quarter horse who is fit and in great condition for $1800 and am having problems getting interest in him. The market is horrible right now, and unfortunately you aren't going to get the price you want for him.

    Market is horrible. In Oklahoma, he would be worth no more than $400. Do a little research... Check out equine.com and craigslist for listings in your area on prices of horses, reg. And unreg. A good broke gelding is good, but this horse needs more weigh and that would turn away potiential buyers.
