I have been meaning to send an update on River and today seem to be an appropriate one. One year ago today I became River’s Mom, with him arriving at Bits & Bytes directly from his racing career. It has been an interesting and educating year to say the least. Having bought my “Guy” sight unseen, he is an incredibly beautiful animal with so much personality. He is as demanding and opinionated as his mom. Thank you both for all the help and direction you have given in his transition from the track. I also thank you for taking my ten year old daughter, Kristen, under your wing and giving her so much direction as well as having her spend sleep over time while attending a nearby horse camp. She loves her time at Bit & Bytes Farm and has enjoyed riding my OTTB on a regular basis.

Everyone has fun helping with the chores at Bits and Bytes Farm! Kristen and her friend Ashlyn are cleaning out the feed buckets. Photo by Jay Boatwright of Smaxtart.

Elizabeth’s Note: We have had the pleasure of watching Loui and K O River Crossing learn and grow together. Please take the time to look at the photos below and see all that they accomplished together in just one short year. They have had fun “decorating” for Christmas and they have been on a hunter pace – both Loui and “River” are learning to jump. Loui had not ridden for many years before purchasing K O River Crossing as a Prospect Horse For Sale – sight unseen. We first met Loui when she decided that K O River Crossing was to be her “Guy”. We are blessed that they board here at our farm and have become good friends. Even Loui’s daughter Kristen is now starting to ride “River”. Loui, Kristen and “River” are an important part of Bits & Bytes Farm. How did we ever get by before Louie’s muffins!

River, Loui and Kristen have had a busy year at Bits & Bytes Farm. Click here to read their past success stories.
