How much would they be worth?

I came to these boards hoping to get a little help. I am sad to say that I must sell my horses. I just don't have enough time for them and money is a little tight. And with a baby on the way, I will be even shorter on both. I wanted to sell them together, but I just don't think that's going to happen. Most don't want to buy 3 horses together. I just don't know how much I should be asking for them. None of them are broke to ride. Again comes the time and money factor here. They have all been saddled in the past, several times, although it has been a while, but never had a rider. Thanks so much in advance! I wasn't really sure what information to put on, but I will answer any questions.
A little info about each individual horse and pictures:

Saint Liberty Bell aka LIBBY

10 yrs old. About 14.3hh. Wonderful mare. Very stock, and very easy keeper. Never had to do anything but give her grass or hay to stay plump. When I bought her, she had papers to be registered. They got lost somewhere between multiple moves. She is out of Diamond Madole, by St Bazaar. Pedigree: Saint Liberty Bell Paint

Tolkien's Shadowfax aka SHADY

10yrs old. About 15hh. Sweet boy. He's always been an in your pocket horse. Has taken a few naps with his head on my shoulder. He would make an excellent speed event horse or trail horse. Not registered. Not even sure of his breeding.

Andromeda Sirrah aka ROMY

8 yrs old. She is about 14.3hh. She was born here to my old Appaloosa mare. She has frosting, courtesy of her dam and gets more and more white each year. Romy does have a scar on her shoulder from a cougar attack when she was a weanling, but it doesn't affect her at all. She would make a wonderful working cow horse, event horse, or trail horse. She comes from great working cow horse lines on tip side. Don't know her dams pedigree. She is not registered. Pedigree:Andromeda Sirrah Araloosa

In this area, an unbroke project horse like yours is worth maybe $500. You might get a little more for the first two because they have some color that people like, but their age works against them.

I'm guessing $250-$300 simply because they are not registered and unbroke. I've seen broke registered horses going for $500-$800 around in my area, some even less due to people trying to get rid of them asap.

In my area unbroken horses are worth about $25-30. That's it! It would be a struggle to give them away.

Unfortunatly, they aren't going to bring much and they will likely attract the kill buyers so check your referances twice and have a good contract! In my area, you would be hard pressed to give horses like this away.

IMO, people really do horses a huge disservice when they don't train a horse and make them a useful member in the equine world.

I wish you all the luck and hope you can find loving homes that are willing to train them and make them more marketable in their future.

Grade, older, unbroke animals are going to be hard to sell individually, never mind together.

If they were 3 to 4 years old and unbroke you could probably get around $500 each, but older horses with no training you'll be lucky to give away. Especially since they're grade animals. The mares can't even be used as broodies, since any reputable breeder requires registered stock, or at least performance proven ones.

I wish you luck in rehoming them. The odds are against them, and you as their owner are responsible for their unfortunate circumstances.

Your best bet for a good home will probably be to find someone looking for a buddy/companion for their horse.
