Personally I think that, even though he may ultimately be a safe horse, $800 is a lot of money for him - especially with the scars and lacerated tongue.
I go to the sales regularly and I'm afraid he would only bring about $100 or at best, $150 at a sale. Double that for a private sale and you have his value. At the last sale, there was a dead broke gelding, very flashy, registered with APHA, 12 years old, and ridden by a 10 year old. I know the seller so I know the horse was 100% sound and safe. He sold for $750 and was the second highest selling horse.
I don't know where in GA you are but there are a lot of horses out here that don't have the problems this one may have and for the same or less money.

I'm not arguing with you, I'm just explaining why I'm right.
Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize you're wrong.
It's not always what you say but what they hear.
