Who cares if the thermometer reads 106 degrees in downtown Atlanta? We’re going to the show! No wimps in this group.
With Wings arrived at Bits & Bytes Farm on May 9, 2010. He is Reign Day’s brother.
People ask how how we find such nice horses. We have a group of owners, trainers and breeders that we like to place horses for because they do a great job of breeding, raising and training their horses. They care about what happens to their horses. Most of the Thoroughbreds we sell have raced or …
We had a fantastic day riding with nine Bits & Bytes Farm off-the-track Thoroughbreds at the In Unison Farm Hunter Pace. It was a great day even if it was a little windy. Our horses enjoyed the ride as much as we riders did. Who could not love galloping across beautiful fields of grass or …
CLINIC UPDATE: See photos and read about our clinic with Evie Stephens. Thank you to all who participated and to our guests and new friends who joined in the fun. See photos on our Training Thoroughbreds with Dressage page.
We did a quick run up to Keeneland Race Track to check on a few horses we are waiting to become available for sale. Even when there is no racing at Keeneland it has lots of activity because it is a training center for Thoroughbreds. While in Kentucky, we stopped by our favorite breeder’s farm to get more photos of Great Game and pick up some fantastic Kentucky hay for the horses back home. Enjoy our story and photos . . .
Last weekend we had the pleasure of a visit from Danielle Newton of Chicago. She came to see With Wings and fell in love with So Romeo. Unfortunately, neither horse is the perfect match for her so she will continue her search. We did get some great photos of With Wings and So Romeo so check them out on their pages.
Bits & Bytes Farm’s Head Assistant Trainer (that’s Trainer with a capital T), the Baroness Von River, has written up a new training note. We have placed the page of her latest training notes under the Off-the-Track Tales menu. Last night she assisted with the training of Spot Run and Popular Five aka Bo as they crossed the enchanted brook. Read More . . .
It was a beautiful Easter Sunday morning but it was a little too early for Monarch’s Reign to be up for a trail ride. He fell asleep on his saddle as his mom tried to tack him up in the trailer. See the photos of our ride and our Easter/birthday party that we enjoyed when we returned to the farm on our 2011 Outings & Training Photos page under Training Thoroughbreds.
Sunday was such a perfect spring day that we decided to take the Oliver’s new 4 Star trailer on a test run to Garland Mountain in north Georgia with their two Thoroughbreds — Political Pull and Spot Run. We loaded four more Thoroughbreds into the Bits & Bytes Farm’s 4 Star to join in on the fun. So Romeo, With Wings, Monarch’s Reign and our newest off-the-track Thoroughbred, Detroit Iron aka “Andy” all enjoy trail riding. We have a photo gallery showing the beautiful day on our new page 2011 Outings and Training Photos.
