This is from Shannon . . .

I stayed out at the barn all day. Missilery is doing great. I walked him around this morning to stretch his legs and I let him out in a paddock. He's doing great. I just love him! When we got back tonight we tacked him up and bridled him and lunged him in the round pen. He was awesome! He knew exactly what to do which totally surprised Jennie and me. I don't have a single complaint or worry. He seems to be settling in a lot better than we expected. I got on him and walked him around the ring and he was perfect! Then we trotted. He has a very smooth comfortable trot and amazing movement. Jennie even got on him and loved him too! He was great! Thanks so much for finding him for me, we all love him and so does everybody else at our
barn! Well thanks again. :)

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.

Back to the Track - June Trip Two

We did a second trip last week (June 24 - 25) to the race track to pick up two horses. One was our June Prospect Horse Six. We also picked up another new horse to have for sale at Bits & Bytes Farm. This time it was a 16 hand four-year-old bay gelding by the name of Snowdance Kid. Watch for his page soon.

When we knew we would be returning to the track, we let the out word again that we would be going. The e-mails and phone calls started pouring in. People are catching on to a good thing. These horses at the track are gorgeous and kind - and affordable. All they need is a special person to help them learn a new career.

June Prospect Horse Six was Missilery.
June Prospect Horse Six was Missilery. He was quickly sold to Shannon Darby.

Shannon Darby was first to call on June Prospect Horse Six . Shannon loved the photos and a phone call confirmed that he had the temperament and soundness for a career in eventing. Shannon and her Mom, Mary, decided to come along for the ride to the track to pick up their new purchase.

We left early on Friday and drove to Kentucky where we visited a farm with several horses for sale. BIG is the only way to describe these horses. Elizabeth was able to ride two of them and found them to be quiet and easy to ride. Both horses have been away from the track and turned out on the blue grass of Kentucky, so both were rather - stout! We are offering one of them as our July Prospect Horse One. Watch the Prospect Page for more July Prospects soon.

We also did a side trip by the Kentucky Horse Park, in Lexington, KY to show our guests the beautiful equine facility. Saturday was another day of prospecting at the track. Watch for our July Prospect Horses' photos soon.

We are still trying to get caught up from our last trip and it looks like we may be doing another one this weekend. Call if you want us to bring home anything. July Prospect One is ready to go!

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!
