IN GENERAL - Do people want pasture buddies/lawn ornaments??

So....I've decided that Scout isn't going to work for me because of his roaring (which I'm still learning about, including the cost of surgery...gasp). He could probably work really well for general hacking or even as a lesson horse (for beginning riders just learning to ride) after he's learned a few more lessons and become more bomb proof. I feel more comfortable giving him to a good home where he would just hang out in a pasture as a friend or just to look pretty (which he happens to be really good at! :) ). Do people still want these types of animals? Do you guys suggest it? I want to get a horse that I can event on, but I can't afford to feed two horses right now (or else I would just keep Scout because I think he's great). I need some suggestions.....

In general, I'm going say no. Mainly because the cost of feed but also because there are SO MANY people looking to find pasture ornament homes for their horses! However, we had this absolutely beautiful appendix show hunter at our barn who was going blind in one eye that was making him spook pretty badly (he was a top A show hunter, completely bombproof, and excellent kids horse before he started going blind!). We found a home for him that just wanted a pet who they could occasionally jump once in a while for some really easy trail riding. They took him and still love him. It took a good 2 or 3 months (listed on equine.com) to find him that home. If he's gentle enough you could call up some equine therapy center and see if they'll take him (tax deductible!). That's where we retire several of our school horses to.
