Welcome to Bits & Bytes Farm


Welcome to Bits & Bytes Farm on the Web. Take a virtual tour of the farm and see the beautiful thoroughbreds we have for sale. Follow their training and learn how we bring them from racetrack to a new career in the show ring, fox hunting or eventing.

It's been a busy first week of the New Year!

We started the new year with our birthday party for the Thoroughbreds and continued the fun the next day with a trail ride to Dawson Forest with two of our newer to trail riding horses - Chouette Player and Knight Villain.

Trail riding with a group is a good way to see how the horses might behave while fox hunting. We like to do short, fun trips away from the farm to reassure the Thoroughbreds that they will be coming back to Bits & Bytes Farm. Lise on Fort Mason, Marie on Brewster and Gertjan on Big Money joined us on the ride. Marie brought the camera and captured the fun. Both Chouette Play and Knight Villain look like they have fox hunting potential - as well as eventing capabilities.

Mid-week we had visitors from Savannah, Georgia - Meghan and her trainer Jennifer. Meghan enjoyed riding Brewster, Era of Chanago and Chouette Player. Jennifer enjoyed Chanago but she is not currently in the market or he would be gone.

Early Saturday morning our newest horse, Cloned Colony, arrived in style from the race track aboard a huge 78 foot fifteen horse van. Too bad it was too dark to get photos of the van.

Cloned Colony arrived early Saturday morning.

After the sun finally came up, several of our horses loaded into two trailers and headed to Big Bear for some cross country schooling with Bits & Bytes Farm trainer, Elisa Wallace and a horse she is training for resale. Former Bits & Bytes Farm horses for sale, Broadway Joe and Te Conquistar (aka Mactavish) learned to jump banks and ditches with their moms and boarding buddy Trey and Mandy.

Just as their trailers pulled out, Straw Boy's new family arrived with their trailer to take Straw Boy to his home in North Carolina. If this keeps up we will have to install traffic lights in the parking lot!

Straw Boy has found a wonderful family to move in with. Dr. and Mrs. Harry Moore have just completed building a new home and stables in the mountains of North Carolina. Straw Boy will continue with his event training and Harry plans to compete with him later this year.

The spring-like weather is making it really pleasant to be working outside training the horses. Our baby Firefly is now quietly riding in the arena at a walk, trot and canter. On Sunday she had her first mini trail ride in our woods and she lead the way crossing the stream and stepping over logs without hesitation. This little lady is going to be bomb proof in another month - if not already! She will make a great fox hunter for a timid rider or a child that may have out grown her pony. Firefly is now almost three and a half and she will start ground pole work this week.

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!
