Wiseguy's Out - Talented Hunter/Jumper NOT For Sale!
September 13, 2008
I just looked around your site and you've really got a lot of great
horses for sale.
We've had some interest in Wiseguy and that's been really nice.
He went out on trial but when I dropped him off he kept trying to
turn around and come back to me and was nickering and you know he's
not much of a talker. That buyer felt he was a little green for his
Anyway, we took him to a local show this weekend and he was incredible.
He placed second in a big class by zipping around in the jump off
and leaving all the rails up. Other horses dropped rails and only
one was faster and clean.
We had an interested family look at him at the show but it hit
me square between the eyes that I just can't bear to part with
him. We've been through so much together and I love him dearly
and he really loves my trainer, J.C. They really click.
So Wiseguy is off the market permanently and I will continue
to be his proud mom cheering him on in the stands as he and J.C.
race up the levels in the jumpers! I hack him and keep him fit
doing interval work in the fields and J.C. trains and shows him.
I will send you a video of his round in this weekend's show when
I get it from the videographer. We're headed to another show
in 2 wks so I hope to get some photos to send.
It felt really good when J.C. and Wiseguy were in
the jump off and other trainers and their students were watching
and as they made a really tight roll back to the last jump, one of
the trainers said, "whoa
don't you try that that's only for professionals and experienced
horses!" I didn't tell them Wiseguy's only been showing
jumpers for 5 months!

I hope all is well at Bits and Bytes! Wanted to send you a success
stories update on Wiseguy's Out. He's doing awesome. I thought
we had him sold to a trainer in TX but they were looking for a
smaller horse. He is still for sale if you know of anyone.
He was reserve champ at local H/J show in the low
hunters and showed Level 1 jumpers at two "AA" rated shows and did
very well, placing each time. He is going to show at Level 2 Jumpers
in KY in a couple of weeks and again in Germantown later in August.
He definitely has the talent to move up the levels.
He's loving his job! He loves being a jumper! WOW!
sending a couple of pics from last show. I will get take some current
ones and look through my photos of him to see if I have some good
ones to send.
Elizabeth's Note: We
knew with his breeding that Wiseguy's
going to be a great sport horse. His mom Dr. Jennifer Dunlap has
done a fantastic job of bringing him along. She now feels that he
has more talent than she has time for and she wants him to go to
an owner who can keep showing him at the upper levels of the hunter/
jumper show world. Dr. Jennifer came to Bits & Bytes Farm to try
Wise Guy's Out and it turned out that she had an even more important
thing to do while at the farm. She saved the life of Knight
Villain! Go to Knight Villain's Success

Here are some pictures of Wiseguy and me at the KDA dressage show.
He is really coming into his own and staying level headed about everything.
We're working together great!

Wiseguy's Out and Dr. Jennifer Dunlap - March 10, 2006
Wiseguy's Out stopped by for a quick visit on his way back to Tennessee. He had been in training while Dr. Jennifer Dunlap recovered from a broken foot. She is recovered and he lost no training time. Expect to see some competition photos of them soon.

Here are the pictures of Wiseguy when Richard and I rode him on Monday. He was such a good boy and I'm so proud of his progress. He stretches down into the bit and is becoming more and more collected. His topline has steadily improved and he's so rounded out now!
Wiseguy is really a sensational horse-I'm not prejudiced of course!
Dr. Jennifer has now purchased THREE horses from Bits & Bytes
Hope and Urca.
Chick's Hope was purchased in April 2005. She
is also available for sale.
Urca is the third horse purchased by veterinary
surgeon Dr. Jennifer Dunlap from Bits & Bytes Farm.
Wiseguy's Out and Chick's Hope (aka Luna) are both doing great. Wiseguy
is feeling fat and sassy after his mini-vacation while I was in Florida
for five days! He settled right in to work, though, today.
Hope to see you soon!
Elizabeth,Wiseguy is settling in great! We couldn't
be happier with him. Since we've had a lot of rain recently
I've had the opportunity to walk him through puddles and little "streams" that
have been created with the run off and he's handling them like an
old pro. He
and Merlin (our Belgian gelding) are slowly being introduced to one
another so they can be turn out buddies.He has really settled in
to the routine amazingly quickly. I'm
going to take him to a group trail ride near the end of this month
and a dressage clinic at the first of May.

Wiseguy's Out in training with his aunt Lauren
in January 2005.
Equine veterinarian and surgeon Dr. Jennifer Dunlap came to Bits
& Bytes Farm in Janaury looking for an event horse. She rode Darcy
and Wiseguy's Out but fell in love with Wiseguy's personality and
movement. After an extensive vet check (by Dr. Jennifer) and a full
set of x-rays, Wiseguy earned himself a new mom.
Wiseguy's will be staying at Bits & Bytes Farm for a few months
of training with Dr. Dunlap's sister, Lauren Dunlap, who is an Intermediate
Level event rider. We welcome Lauren to the farm as a new "Friend
of Bits & Bytes Farm". We now have two "Friends"
who are lawyers and we joked about starting our own law firm specializing
in equine and technology businesses.
