October 12 - We have just returned from the Shakerag Hunter Pace where "Team Ford" (they all drive Ford trucks) finished second. "Team Ford" was made up with two Bits & Bytes Farm horses: Heathcliff and Captain Arias. Congratulations to the whole team.
The Shakerag Hunter Pace was Roary's public debut and first ever event with lots of other horses galloping by. He was terrific! He loved galloping over the countryside and remained collected and easy to control. He showed off his dressage talent at one check point doing a beautiful side pass at a trot. The coups were no problem for Roary who is used to higher fences back at the farm.
Two other Bits & Bytes horses made up "Team Bits & Bytes Farm" - Fort Mason and Columbus. Fort Mason was our first off the track thoroughbred and he was a true rescue having been found through New Vocations. Fort Mason had raced until he was eight and then bowed a tendon. He was donated to New Vocations and was adopted by Bits & Bytes Farm. We brought him back slowly and he is sound for jumping and fox hunting. He is our number one fox hunter!

Columbus is owned by Stacey Gunnison and is boarded at Bits & Bytes Farm. Columbus is an incredible jumper and is just 14.1 hands high! Roary had trouble catching Columbus when galloping across one of the big pastures. That must be why he is no longer racing.

September 30 - Dean Graham and Megan Fischer visit for the Turning Point Event. We enjoyed watching Dean and Megan work Irish and Roary. Captain Arias had a great ride at the Turning Point Event in Chatsworth, GA.
Our visitors this weekend were Kathy and Katherine Murray from Nashville, TN. Katherine enjoyed Dean's training while taking Stanley for a test ride.
