Meg and Lylle - September 2005

Dear Elizabeth,
We truly marvel at all you do ... you certainly fill a 24 hour day four times over.  You have truly made your presence felt in this world.

Thank you for updating Lylle's page.  I remember asking you in your kitchen over a year ago "How will we know when we have found the right horse?"  You responded with such sincerity, "You will just know!"  I have shot over 1000 pictures this summer, but these three truly depict how happy my girls are.

While you continue to work to improve the world in terms of trainers, owners, and the safe retiring of each racehorse... here in North Carolina, we want you to know you have truly changed our world and we will be forever thankful.

We miss you guys and hope that whenever your life settles down, you will come sit on our rocking chairs and put your feet up!

Love,
Mary Jo and Meg

Lylle and Meg - May 2005

I have been playing with my new Mother's day gift... a Cannon SLR. Be careful, I may inundate you with photos. I love it!!!

On a sad note, we will be moving Lylle and her girlfriend Socks to a new barn on Saturday. The stables we have been at for 6 months just couldn't make a go of it. So we are heading to a real nice (pricey.. yikes!) barn this weekend. The trainer was a pony clubber as a kid and she grew up in Ocala. She will be a perfect person to work with Meg and Lylle. But Meg will miss the barn full of girls.

Hope you like these pictures of my girls.
Miss you both,
MJ

Hello Elizabeth,    

We have been celebrating Meg's one year anniversary with her wonderful pal, Lylle.  Thank you so much for all the guidance you gave us during the process. 

As I have said before, it all started a year ago with me staring at a blank computer screen saying a prayer that I would find a web site or advertisement that would lead to a knowledgeable, kind person. Twenty minutes later, I came across a link to your web site, and within thirty days, we were blessed with not only Lylle but a life long friendship with you and Barry! Just wish we all lived closer so we could join in all the fun at Bits and Bytes Farm. 

One year anniversary for Lylle and Meg.

Here are some photos from a month ago ... doesn't Lylle look fancy?  She is such a quick learner and the people at Pony Club thinks she and Meg make a great pair.  How true!    

We will send pictures from next month's eventing rally ... Lylle's first with the Pony Club.  Just wanted you to know how things are going... hope you, Barry, the dogs and all the horses are well and enjoying this wonderful spring weather.  We'll be in touch.    

Love,    
Mary Jo and Meg

 HI Elizabeth,    

We are surviving our first winter in the mountains, but boy, it has been a challenge.  We have had quite a bit of ice, some snow, winds that just shake the house, and lots of snow days from school.  The progress on the new barn is real slow... so the girls have had to endure barn life with no bathroom, heat, limited electricity, and crowded conditions in the indoor ring. We believe the end is in sight ... but it has been a bit trying the last two months.    

On a brighter note.. Lylle thinks she is at camp.  She is having the time of her life.. rolling in mud, playing with the other mares, and fashionably wearing one of her many blankets. 

The first day we had snow, we took Lylle out to see it . She was apprehensive at first.. but then, had a ball racing from one end of the paddock to the next. 

Here are some cute pictures of how our Florida girl enjoyed her first exposure to snow. I think she looks like a rodeo queen.

But it hasn't been all play lately, since we have been working with a trainer on her flat work.  Will send you some of those pictures when we all thaw out.  I have a new digital camera so hopefully the next pictures will be clearer.    

Meg and I continue to watch your web site and just last Saturday when we were at Pony Club, another Mom said... Oh, she's a Bits and Bytes horse.  Her family went to see your farm a year ago while they were at Big Canoe. 

We sure do miss you and Barry and really hope when this summer's heat hits Georgia.. you will com escape to the mountains with us.    

Love, 

MJ

I must thank you for all your guidance with Lylle .. she is Meg's dependable friend when she needs love, her brave companion when she is trying something new.. and her thrilling partner on the initial excursion on the cross country course this past weekend.

Lylle and Meg off the bank and into the water.

It was a first for the both of them.. but the thrill will be remembered for a long time. Here are some of the photos ... many are blurry because this Mom's hand's were shaking as she watched her girls go flying over the jumps. Truly the water jumps were the favorite.. both going in and out of the cold muddy water.

Lylle and Meg on course!

Hope you are staying healthy during this very busy season ...
I will be in touch..
Love,
MJ
