The horse in my Avatar. She was 2500 I believe (I think they were asking 3500 and we got them down in price because she had papers but they hadn't been sent in yet). Definitely overpriced, but again bad situation and I was determined that she was going to have a better home. She was about 20 minutes away from my house.
She was 4 at the time, very little handling, some abuse in the past, not a horrible weight, but not fed right either. She was virtually unhandleable when I got her. Spent quite a while just to be able to catch her, so she could get turned out and run around like a normal horse. Feet were horrible, still had her wolf teeth, and they were huge. Such a sweet horse once she realized that I wasn't going to hurt her. She had the breeding to be worth quite a bit if she had been shown, and was actually registered at the time, owner/breeder didn't seem to understand the times, and that an unbroke unhandled 4 year old mare with papers, but not actually registered wasn't worth 3500. But she's in a great home now, and was definitely a great learning experience for me! Love her to death, and miss her greatly.
