We are getting ready for our Halloween costume party. We had so much fun on July 4th that we decided to decorate the horses for Halloween.

Join the Fun at Bits & Bytes Farm

Have you been following the our Web site? Why have you not come to see us? We have lots of beautiful horses here to try. We even have a few openings for boarders —for the first time in two years! We have a great group of people at the farm and we enjoy lots of activities and road trips for schooling and showing.

Boarding at Bits & Bytes Farm is the Best!

If you have a Thoroughbred, this is the farm for you. Our special feeding program and our grass pastures with four board fencing are perfect for keeping your horse healthy.

Don't have a Thoroughbred? Why not? Just kidding. We welcome all geldings that have no stable vices. We look for people who share our love of horses and have the desire to help transition ex-racers to a new life. We welcome them as boarders. When your horse is laid up, you can even ride one of ours.

This farm is operated by the owners of the property. This is not a leased farm trying to make a living off of boarders. We over seed and fertilize our pastures several times a year. We tuck the horses in every night with a 10 PM feeding of hay and water.

We feed top-of-the-line Buckeye feeds. Gro 'n Win, flax seed, rice bran and beet pulp are a part of our feeding program at no additional cost to you! Read about our feeding program.

Not ready to buy but you have lots of experience? We can always use a few more "Friends of Bits & Bytes Farm".

What is a "Friends of Bits & Bytes Farm"?

"Friends" are experienced horse people who have the time and the desire to help us train and exercise our Thoroughbreds. Many of our "Friends" rode seriously years ago and now have the time, but not the horse, to get back into riding. Don't worry if you are a bit rusty. We can polish your riding skills. There is nothing like a Thoroughbred to teach you how to be soft with the seat and hands. You will fall in love on your first ride. We do have one warning to offer: Most "Friends of Bits & Bytes Farm" fall in love with a special horse and end up buying him.

"Friends of Bits & Bytes Farm" are the first to hear about the Prospect Horses offered to us from our long list of approved trainers."Friends" get to ride all the new horses that make it to the farm. They also get first chance to buy them. Do you have the desire to join in the fun? Give us a call. There are only a few stalls available. 770-704-6595.

Call or come by for a visit - but please call first!

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. Prospect horses will not be sold to beginners or children without a full time trainer.

Not all horses are available for sale when they first come to the farm. We like to work with them for a while to teach them the basics of being a safe sport horse and to make sure they are healthy. You are welcome to visit and to get on a waiting list to be the first to ride them when we feel they are ready to be ridden by our visitors. Call us to discuss prices or to schedule an appointment. We are sorry but we cannot accommodate you if you just drop in unannounced. We'd love to have you come meet all of our horses--we know that it will be worth your time. Just bring peppermints!

Our security team springs into action. Sydney, Wizard and Zulu.
