Weekends are Busy at Bits & Bytes Farm
We are still trying to get caught up from last weekend -- it was
a busy one. We had visitors from Tennessee and also local visitors
all riding and trying horses.

with Aunt Lauren at Bits & Bytes Farm.
We are happy to announce Sally Thomas' purchase of Cloned
Colony and even more happy to welcome her to the Bits
& Bytes Farm family. Cloned Colony will continue
to board and train at our farm with our very talented trainers.

Cloned Colony got one more test ride from Sally
before she decided to take him off-the-market. Sally adds a little
style to the farm with her color coordination of saddle pads to sweat
Training continued with some of our other boarders as well. Mactavish
(formerly known as Te
Conquistar) practiced his jumping with trainer Elisa Wallace.
He was purchase a little over a year ago by mom Leighton.

Bits & Bytes Farm trainer Elisa Wallace also on Saturday.
Lucky's Test Ride
a young lady named Samantha taking him for a test ride this past weekend.
He seemed to really like the touch of her hands. Samantha is just
eleven so we started her out on the lunge line to make sure she was
Lucky and Samantha started on the lunge line and finished jumping
the mini coop.
Samantha quickly proved her riding ability and was soon riding off
the lunge line. She finished by jumping Lucky over the cross rails
and the mini coop. We love to see such talent in a young rider. It
is not often we find children with the sensitivity to ride a Thoroughbred.
It's a Pole Painting Party!
The "Friends of Bits & Bytes Farm" were also kept busy
painting poles and fences to get ready for Spring and our Easter Egg
Hunt. It doesn't take much coaxing to bring out the "Friends"
and their dogs.

& Bytes Farm security team.
We had a great time painting fences (and dogs) and then shared a
lunch prepared by Chef Zoobear. Our visitors joined us and we watched
the DVD of the January 1st Thoroughbreds'
Birthday party contests (created by our own ubergeek Gertjan).
Once again, we had to check the timing of the obstacle course event.
Elizabeth still feels that Lucky was faster than Joe Bear who was
ridden by Paula. Paula's brother did the timing . . . ummmn.
Paula's response . . .
"While Lucky was
quick and agile, Joe Bear won fair and square. We won by control,
precision and pure skill." - Paula

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!
Even the dogs enjoyed the painting party.
