how much do you think he is worth?

Ok so I have come to a decission, I am selling Caesar, I dont spend enough time with him and I dont think he is ready to become a pasture pet.. (which is exactly what he is at my house. )

anyway, I am dont really care if he isnt worth much, (i am not selling for money) I just want to know what you guys think he is worht because this is my first time selling a horse.

ok so.

Caesar Augustus,
is an Appaloosa
I assume he is around 20yrs,
he is not registered and I dont know anything about his background.

he was my first horse, and he is actually pretty well behaved, he is just a little rusty on riding manners.

I dont know what else to say...

all I can think of are his flaws.. so I guess I can start there...

he trailers, but I have only ever gotten him to go into the trailer with food, and you have to lead him in he wont go in alone.. and I think his problem is little tiny two horse trailers he has no problem with the bigger ones (i work on it with him for months, then just decided as long as he go into the trailer I was happy)

he ties, I have been working on this with him, after a couple of years he started not respecting the rope. he would be fine and then if somehow the rope got taught, (like I was picking out his feet and he slowly backed up then tossed his head then the rope tightened) he will pull back he has caused some damage with this habit. but I have been working on him with it and before I tie him I jerk on the rope, he will put his head up but then he move toward the presure.. (i use that as a test to make sure he knows he is tied)
he ground ties before I worked with him I just toosed the rope over the fence and he stands just fine hat way. ( i stil do that just because I dont see any reason to tie him if he stands without it.. )

he stands for farrier, grooming and bathing...

he is pretty difficult to spook, he is pretty close to being bomb proof, everything that I have exposed him to he has been fine with... I am sure there is stuff he might be afraid of, but what horse is totally bomb proof anyway? I used to ride him on busy rode with semis passing us.. (until my mother axed that.. which is where my trail riding went.. )

he lunges, free lunges and is pretty good at respecting your space.

he leads without a lead rope.. and sometime without a halter.. (at least with me)

he is easy to catch and he come into the barn when he sees me (sometimes )

he has never once kicked me or bitten me, he reared once, but that was my fault.. which brings me to riding...

I ride him western (definatly doesnt have an "english" body.. lol ) he is a great trail horse, and the first two years I had him that is all we did . (I thought he was the perfect horse) then I "lost my tails" and had to ride him in the ring, and when we are in the ring I kep finding things that he cant do or isnt perfect at. and I dont like to train under saddle so I quit riding him...
he reared up on me when I discovered that he hates to back up (in the hack) i kept making him do it until he freaked.. (entirely my fault) he is a little better but still wont do it for long periods of time... he neck reins.. (not great but like I said he is rusty from not being ridden) he direct reins...
he did really good when I ponied Lilly with him...
he rides in a d-ring snaffle, or a hackamore, depending on my mood, he has always ridden in a mech hackamore. at least that is what his last owner bought him in... I think he is probably better behaved in the hack becasue he is used to it...

I am selling him with his saddle and his bridle, along with his bit and hack. (i swich them on the same bridle) so their price is included, though I will give the buyer the choice of not buying them as well.

I dont really have any good confo shots of him right now, but here are some pictures of him,

I am pretty sure that his conformation is bad, but like I said I am not expecting to sell him for a lot.

oh I bought him for $1,500 in ME where everything is twice as expensive.
now I am in PA....


umm this is what he looked like when I bought him...(

that's a tough one! I can ony say what he would sell for here in Alberta.
He's a good lookin' boy and seems to be an easy keeper! If he's good with kids I'd say 1000$, if only for intermediate rider, probably 700$... and that only due to his age...

I'd take him!

do you think he would be good at gaming? I'd say here in PA $500-$700 is a good price depending on the time of year, and where in pa i just dont advise selling at an auction as many horses in more rural areas especially somtimes go for meat

I'd say $800.You said he was your first horse, so he could be a first horse for someone esle and christmas is around the corner! So being that holidays are comming you could get $1000 maybe even $1200.
