I don't think you are set up to help a horse loose weight. A horse this fat needs very restricted food(NOT a round bale) first, and as much exercise as you can give him. That said, he seems the better of the two for the fiancé.
Datsun sounds green. My 4 year old, with one season of riding on her, stands for mounting, backs, started on neck reining, moves off your leg, and goes wherever she's pointed. He should be ALOT less expensive than he is.
All that said, I know you commented that you knew they were over priced, but they are REALLY over priced. We have a pretty good market up here, but going into winter, both of these horses would be $1500-2000. In the summer Tony, if slimmed down and very well broke, might make 3000, but Datsun would probably be closer to 2000-2500
