How much would you pay?

I don't know if this is posted in the right area,but I didnt want to post in critique without pics

How much would you personally be willing to pay for an unregistered QHxRPSI (breed(s) unknown) 2 1/2 year old mare? She is bay with no markings,not halter broke (yes..at coming 3),not started,no shots and never dewormed. She has never had her hoofs done or her teeth checked in her life. She has been on pasture 99% of her life and done absolutely nothing with. She has bad respect issues and it's no wonder as she was allowed to do as she pleased for most of her life. She has been left in a roundpen for a couple months while a teenage girl was trying to catch her. She has only been caught a handful of times since she was born. The current owner was given this horse free from the breeder who couldn't do anything with her. And its too much for her to handle so she decided to sell her. So....the big question...what is the top price you would pay for this horse going into winter? I am looking for serious answers. I made an offer and I'm wondering if it was too high or low Thanks in advance :)

$100.00-$150.00, and I'm being generous.

The owner should be paying YOU to take a horse like that, to be honest.

I'd say probably less than $1,000.

In Nebraska you would be lucky to get 200 for a horse like that!

All things the way you described, I wouldn't buy this horse at all - I'm not sure I would take it for free. If there was a price tag on the horse, not more then $100 and it wouldn't bring $25.00 at an auction.

Thanks everyone...you all said what I figured. She wanted $300-$500. I offered $150 as the horse has no guarantees on anything. I don't believe she would go for more than $25-$100 at any auction around me. Just wanted to make sure I wasnt rudely out of line on my offer. I really doubt I'll end up with her though it sounds like they are sticking to their price...and she has been listed quite a while :/

Just stick to your price. I can't imagine anyone paying her asking price so, sooner or latter, she will either come to your price (but try to work you a little higher) or hold on to the horse - which actually makes her less valuable.

I think you are very generous at $150.00

Here in the US today: Nothing.

About ten years ago in Australia I paid $500 for a two year old untouched pony that had been running wild in 100 acres with his Mum, but he was a registered APSB (Australian Pony Stud Book) and was jet black with four white socks and blaze. Yes I was somewhat motivated by his flashy looks.

First thing the little SOB did when I put the halter on him was drag me up a gravel driveway on my stomach (I wouldn't let go). He came round in about six weeks, was broken at three with no dramas and ended up being a kids pony. But it was a gamble.

If you like her and she looks to have potential then do it but it is a LOT of work. I was with that little guy every single day for the first six weeks playing Monty Roberts with him so to speak. After that it was smooth sailing.

And at that price the horse should be delivered to you and only then will they get the $150.00.
