Where have we been?
Many of you follow our Web site and have been asking, "when it will be updated again?" We have been very busy traveling and training horses. So where have we been?
Kentucky the first time - two cities in two days!
On June 13 Elizabeth, Robyn and Elizabeth's sister Judy Eichin traveled to Louisville, KY to attend a fund raiser for the Thoroughbred Retirement Foundation at the Kentucky Derby Museum at Churchill Downs.
Early Saturday morning they drove to Lexington, KY to attend a "Think Tank" session on the Secretariat Center which will be housed at the Kentucky Horse Park in Lexington. Both organizations are involved with taking care of former race horses and helping them to find new owners.
The mission of the Secretariat Center is to focus public attention on the lasting value and versatility Thoroughbreds represent beyond the racetrack. It will include a working stable as part of its permanent operations. Elizabeth and Robyn have offered their expertise in graphic design, Web design and computer technology to the Secretariat Center.
Kentucky the second time - The Seabiscuit Premiere
It was an exciting evening. The horse who played Seabiscuit in the movie was auctioned off for $12,000. No, Bits & Bytes Farm was not the high bidder on this one.
Next in the auction was the original Calumet Farm 1939 horse van. It went for $50,000. Had we not just bought our new 4-Star trailer we might have bid on this beautiful van.
Barry and Elizabeth got up early the next morning to hit Churchill Downs in search of more thoroughbreds that just do not want to run fast. Our search was guided by our friends Sergio and John and Debra Colvin. Did we find some? Keep an eye out for new horses at Bits & Bytes Farm soon.
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!
Secretariat Center will be located on 22-acres at the Kentucky Horse Park. The facility will house ten stalls, offices, a conference room, display area, and business center/lounge. An outdoor arena, numerous paddocks and a small lake will also be located on the site.
