How much is Mozart worth? I'd like to buy him...

Here's info on him:

Name: Mozart (I think that's his "show" name too... unsure though)
Age: 8-10 (unsure of REAL age... due to no real info on him...)
Breed: Warmblood I believe... can anybody identify???
Pedigree: unknown, will get more info...
Gender: Gelding
Training: EXCELLENT with ground manners, good with hooves, has never bit, kicked, bucked, or reared except in play (and even then it's rare). He'll stand tied... but is not a big fan of it. He'll toss his head, but he never tries to "escape". Easy to tack up. He's had basic W/T/C work done, and he's pulled carts a couple of times. He has no work over jumps, though he could be trained to do so. He is great with the farrier, and loves to be groomed. He will follow you around like a puppy. I'm unsure as to all that he's done with riding, but he WAS in a movie... ;) He was an extra... but he's still a movie star. He's done a lot of trails, and he's worked on the nearby track. I think that he has pulled a cart at one point. He hasn't been ridden in a couple months from what I know... maybe longer. I've seen him being ridden... and he didn't look very difficult. No head-tossing (in exception when there were some flies), the person didn't have a VERY strong hold on the reins, and she was talking to someone else, not paying much attention to him.
Feeding Needs: Hay (grass hay or alfalfa, he's not very picky except when it comes to treats), and a couple scoops of oats (not rolled) in the morning. Might have to "up" it if I end up working him harder.

Here are some pics (yes... he's thin... one reason why I want to buy him and get him away from his current owner):

^^ Heh... I learned what it was like having flies all over your eyes... not fun...

I'll try and get a video next time I go out... so you guys can see how he moves (not under saddle... sorry).

He was much more friendly today than he was yesterday. He kept coming up and wanting to cuddle with me. :) I need to get him some fly spray... the flies are attacking them SO bad... He hates peppermints though... I know that for a fact... :P

Why arent the owners feeding him enough? Do they want to sell or do you just want to offer some money? It is hard to put a price on him if the owners don't want to sell him. Around here a horse with that look in them would go for about $600-$700 ... with some TLC and food his apperance would help increase his value. Good Luck!!

I have no idea why they aren't feeding him. It's frustrating.

I'd have to sell him again in six or seven months... but for now... yeah. I'd like to see him in better conditions... besides... I've wanted to own him since the VERY first time I saw him... and even if I own him for only six months... that's better than wishing I had... and having the opportuinty to do so.

600 to 700 sounds like a decent price. That would be... around 375 to 450 euros... not too bad.

I'll probably be offering money. The horse would be living in the same place, but I'd have control over how much he is fed, and so on. He's not "up for sale", but they do nothing with him... except put him out in the field where he gets hardly anything to eat... so yeah... hoping I can save enough money to buy him in a month or something...

You could always offer them less and see what they say. Maybe they have money troubles to begin with hence the lack of food so they may be eager to sell. He is a very nice looking boy though. Only if you have him for 6months he will be really grateful and then you can find a good home for him to stay healthy and happy.

Good Luck!!

Heh... the biggest problem isn't the initial "buy"... but the owning and caring for him. Unlike if I was in the US... I don't have anywhere to really keep him, except where he is now. And there, the boarding is 100 euros a month (160 dollars), which isn't bad... but it's more than I can afford on my own (unless I got a job there and worked for it).

I do have one other option... it's a place that's about thirty to forty minutes from my home... if you're in a car. It's out in the middle of nowhere... and will take me two to three hours if I chose to go by bike. Plus... there's nobody living there... and we just "use" the land as a camp. So it wouldn't be the best option, since I'd have to get out there EVERY SINGLE day from almost sun-up to sun-down just so I could feed and care for him.

So boarding is the only option.

Tack won't be very hard... and I have no idea how much farriers cost here (can't go barefoot b/c I don't know how to trim, and nobody here does it... not really at least.). And vet's aren't all that bad. Twenty to fifty dollars here and there.

So... yeah. If I can find a job... even working for my mom and dad for ten dollars here and there... *sigh*

I think that once I earn enough money, I'll offer 400 dollars (250 euros), and see what they think. If not... looks like I'll have to save up some more... or see if I can do payments.

I can't get him for another month anyways... because I already paid for thirty "rides" on another horse. So I can use this month to earn money and find out all I can. And beg my parents to let me.

And six months is when I'll start looking for a home. We go back to the US July 1st...
