What is my horse worth?

I have a Quarter Horse who's grand daddy is Peppy San Badger. I'm just trying to get a rough estimate of what he is worth. He is 15.3 hh, a beautiful Bay Roan and has incredible conformation. He is a 4 year old, He is broke to ride, just needs more training in whatever disipline he is going to go into. He will walk, trot, canter and is a great mover. He is a bit on the lazy side but will go if asked. His biggest downfall is the lasiness.

Any thoughts on what he is worth? I really want to trade him for a well trained horse for my sister. Doesn't have to be registered or anything special, just someone who has taught kids to ride before. Is that a possibility or would I have to come up with money? I don't know much about quarter horse lines so just be as honest as you can and tell me what the big guy is worth

Be helpful if you had pictures. Conformation is very important. If he's got bad conformation he's not going to be worth much. Good = worth more.

do you have the link to the video? I think that will be most helpful to determine the price.

His conformation isn't really that good from what I see. The very last picture shows a horse that's just put together odd the neck/barrel/hind quarters don't tie in very well. You might be able to trade for another horse and pay money. But I wouldn't think he'd be worth much over $1000 if that. He's got a beautiful color and I like his head.

The thing is, a horse is really worth however much someone is willing to pay for them.

Do you mean they are hard to see on photobucket so I should post them here or they are bad pictures and I need to take new ones?

I thought they looked fine on Photobucket but I've got a pretty big screen.
