Thoroughbred's Celebrate Their Birthdays'

All Thoroughbreds are considered one year older on January 1st so the "Friends and Family of Bits & Bytes Farm" decided to celebrate with a fun day of games for the horses to enjoy. We really don't need much of an excuse to bring out the food and have a party -- so, when Paula asked us all to come out an play - we did! She requested that each horse be decorated to add to the fun.

Now many of you will think we are crazy when you see just what we put on our horses but I want to tell you that not one horse spooked at either their own costume or the costume of another horse! I will credit that to the fact that these horses were former racetrack horses and they have been exposed to many things that would spook a home-bred horse.

Our Boy Darcy was proud to wear the barn door wreath.

Our Boy Darcy decided that instead of eating the silk wreath on the barn door, he would wear it! Darcy wore it up to the arena without a second thought.

He was not too happy about the fact that the jumps had been rearranged for our obstacle course contest. He took a second look at those moved jumps but not at the wreath as it was put over his head!

Paula and THE Joe Bear were decked out in holiday red with bells on the saddle towel and bows in his mane.

Paula did a great job planning the games, several of which were relay races with the kids (and Gertjan because he is a BIG kid) against the adults. Surprisingly the scores were tied in the end between the teams.

Trey was understated in his red head stall while Jessica surprised us all when Columbus appeared as Santa Clause - white beard and all! He does look like Santa Clause with the big round belly!

Lucky played tripod for Elizabeth's camera and you can catch a glimpse of his gold ball head stall during our file ride event.

Era of Chanago is a Thoroughbred horse for sale at Bits & Bytes Farm.

Marie had Era of Chanago wrapped with red and white polo wraps to match his candy cane theme costume. While her husband Gertjan went all out with Big Money and wrapped him in white and silver garland until he looked like a 17.1 hand zebra!!!!

Big Money was wrapped to look like a zebra.

We think Gertjan was hoping to get Big Money a stunt double role in the movie "Racing Stripes".

Preparing for the contests.
None of the horses minded our decorating them.

Call or come by for a visit

Please call us to discuss which horse might be the best match for you based on riding skill, experience and equine personality. We do not send out videos because it is important to match the personality of the horse with the personality of the rider. We are matchmakers, not horse brokers. We have horses in a wide price range. Call us to discuss prices or to schedule an appointment. We'd love to have you come meet all of our horses--we know that it will be worth your time. Just bring peppermints!

Player(s) of the games. Chouette Player and Rob prepare for battle.

Happy Birthday to the Thoroughbreds!
