We had a great weekend at the beautiful Shakerag Hounds clubhouse
and hunt country. It was their annual fall hunter pace and Bits &
Bytes Farm arrived with three trailers full of horses ready to enjoy
the brisk fall weather.

We brought Darcy, Brewster, Ace's
Wiseguy's Out, Mactavish, Big
Money and Hoopla. It was Wiseguy's first
trip away from the farm since arriving in September. He thoroughly
was a wonderful ride and did the tripod duties without issue as Elizabeth
took lots of photos. Marie on Darcy captured Elizabeth and Wiseguy's
and other views of certain jumps.
Another day, another bay. Former Bits &
Bytes Farm horses from left to right: Mactavish (Te Conquistar), Big
Money and current horses Brew This (Brewster), Wiseguy's Out, and
The hunter pace gave us a chance to school the horses over cross-country
fences and see how they would behave with other horses galloping by.
We had one more lesson. There was a loose cow just on the other side
of a gate we had to pass through. Wiseguy's Out was leading the group
and walked right past the cow without a second glance. The other horses
all followed with some taking a few steps away but all of them not
letting a loose cow bother them. We were so proud of our horses. Click

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!
