It's that time of year where there
are plenty of bargains -- if you know where to shop. So it was
off to the races to find more horses.
Our first stop was Turfway Park in Florence, Kentucky where we caught
a few of the evening's races and met up with some of our contacts.
They work at the track riding and training in the morning and at night
ponying horses to post. They tell us this is the time of year to get
horses and they are always watching for good prospects for us.
Next on our shipping list was a stop at Thistledown Race Track in
Cleveland, Ohio. We had great success there, finally getting a horse
that had been identified over a year ago by our farrier. Bullet Again
was greatly sought after last year but his trainer decided to continue
racing him this year. He had two big wins and the trainer finally
let us have Bullet Again. What a present he is!
is a gorgeous bay gelding who stands about 16.1 hands. He is in fantastic
condition and looks more like a fancy show horse than a lean mean
racing machine. Bullet Again already has two suitors and the "Friends
of Bits & Bytes Farm" think he will not be here long.
Bullet Again has the "Look of Eagles".
We actually purchased him for a "Friend" who said to us,
"Find me a horse." She was anxious to get on him so we rode
him the day after he arrived to make sure he was safe. He was totally
quiet and well behaved even when Elizabeth rode him to the woods.
On his second ride he was jumping cross rails! Check out Bullet
Again's new page

The second horse we located was a spectacular four year old
dark bay/black gelding. Our friends Michael and Lana Wuolukka
asked us to locate another good prospect horse for them. We
found them Legacy's Star. Legacy's Star will be for sale in
Macon, Georgia soon at their Hidden
Legacy's Star with new
owners Michael and Lana Wuolukka. We want to thank them for
the trust and confidence they put in us to find them a nice
The third horse we found is a gorgeous well-built chestnut that already
has dressage and jumping training. He only raced three times and he
is six years old. He has been off-the-track for a year in training
with an experienced event trainer. See Straw
page one. More to come. This boy is great!

We finished our shopping and loaded our trailer with another beautiful
chestnut horse for our good friend Lauren. Lauren is the one who alerted
us to the need to help CANTER New England find homes for 112 horses
at the Northhampton Fairgrounds in September which is also how we
met Lana and Michael. Small world. Lauren found herself a very nice
event prospect and we were happy to bring him home to Georgia for
Ho, Ho, Ho HORSES all the way! Happy Holidays from Bits & Bytes

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!
