    Default Info. On Council Farms in GA?

    Hello All,

    I've been on the website for Council Farms http://www.completeequine.com/index.htm looking at their horses for sale. They have some nice gaited horses and there are a couple that I'm very interested in.

    I'm trying to find folks who have actually purchased a horse from Mike and Debbie Council to see what the experience was like and if the horse they saw online was the horse they got.

    Thanks!

    I found their horses on their website over priced in this market. I called about a Hackney pony they had had listed for at least half a year and they wouldn't budge on the price. The fellow I spoke with was rather rude about it too. Really put me off wanting to deal with them at all.

    I am not sure if this is true or not ,but on another horse forum someone had a mule stolen and they found it on their website for sale . It was Ollie ? , I think . It was a palamino John mule with a black ? spot on its chest ,I belive . And they(Council Farms) WILL NOT give any info on the poor mule .

    Now I don't know if this is true or not ,but it was on another horse forum .
