SOLD! SOLD! SOLD! - A Trifecta

Last weekend was a busy one at Bits & Bytes Farm. We had visitors from Tennessee and South Carolina. Our Tennessee visitor was Dr. Jennifer Dunlap, an equine surgeon from Memphis. Jennifer brought her mother, Becky, and her sister, Lauren, with her to look for a new horse.

In speaking with Jennifer before her visit, we learned that she has all the latest tools such as digital x-rays and a state-of-the art ultrasound machine. Knowing that Tara was coming back for a third ride, on Era of Chanago, we put her in touch with Dr. Dunlap. Dr. Dunlap graciously agreed to do a pre-purchase exam on Era of Chanago for Tara.

Tara played vet tech and donned the lead apron to do digital x-rays on Chanago. They were beautiful clean x-rays and clean joints too.

Digital x-rays give immediate results.
Tara and Jennifer got immediate results of the x-rays with Dr. Dunlap's digital x-ray equipment.

Dr. Dunlap rode Darcy and Wiseguy's Out but fell in love with Wiseguy's personality and movement. After an extensive vet check and a full set of x-rays, Wiseguy earned himself a new mom. Wiseguy's will be staying at Bits & Bytes Farm for training with Dr. Dunlap's sister, Lauren Dunlap, who is an Intermediate Level event rider. We welcome Lauren to the farm as a new "Friend of Bits & Bytes Farm". We now have two "Friends" who are lawyers and we joked about starting our own law firm specializing in equine and technology businesses.

Our third sale last weekend was to a friend from Asheville, North Carolina. Christy Tucker (also a friend of Gloria Coleman- mom of former Bits & Bytes horse for sale - Fame for a Day) was quick to jump on our January Prospect horse Steffie's Hope.

Christy came and visited us this summer and was here to see our Bareback Challenge event. We assisted Christy in buying this horse directly from the trainer. Congratulations Christy! She was smart enough to act fast when she saw this beautiful girl appear on our Prospects' page.

Winter Arrives at Bits & Bytes Farm

This weekend we hosted Jennifer Lind from Richmond, Virginia. She was lucky enough to sneak in before the bad weather hit. Jennifer got one good ride in Friday night on Lucky. She did some jumping and some flat work.

Saturday morning dawned crystal clear with all surfaces coated with about a half an inch of ice. Being from Virginia, this was not a big event for Jennifer -- but it was for most Atlantans. The interstates were closed and the stores cleaned out of bread and milk, but still we ride at Bits & Bytes Farm.

Barry brought out what we fondly call the "Dirt Zamboni" to rake the arena. Saturday it lived up to its name, smoothing over the ice to make a good surface for riding. Still, we had to tape up Lucky's feet with duct tape to keep the ice from balling up inside his feet. Jennifer was able to do some flat work before the tape wore out and Lucky had to be returned to the barn for a good roll in the shavings.

Barry rode the dirt Zamboni (tractor) to break up the ice.

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!
