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
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!

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,
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.
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
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!
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
all the horses are well and enjoying this wonderful spring
be in touch.

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.
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
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Hope you are staying healthy during this very
busy season ...
I will be in touch..
Lylle was a Horse For Sale at Bits & Bytes Farm in 2003
