Best Kept Secret in Virginia, Norsire Farm
I wanted to express my gratitude, and let you know what a
pleasurable experience I had at your farm. Your honest and straight forward demeanor
made my decision to buy Gold Tycoon an easy one. I remember when Jill and I walked
into your barn, and the first face we saw was Ty's. I really didn't need to look any
further, but I did so to be polite. Ty looked like he stepped out of a storybook,
and was so light on his feet. Jill looked at me and said "WOW", and you
could have picked my jaw up off the floor...
It was very gracious of you to show us all around
your farm. We both remarked on how happy and content all the horses were.
Needless to say, I couldn't get Ty out of my mind, and had to buy him. I really
appreciate your attention to detail, and the unique relationship you share with all the
animals. I am going to refer to Norsire Farm as the "best kept secret in
Your farm is beautiful, and you are a very special person. I look forward to an
ongoing relationship, and of course, the foals coming in 2007.

My Recent Purchases From Norsire Farm
Thank you Bridget, it was a joy and a pleasure doing business with you. Your
warm but professional demeanor is so refreshing. The two Jockey Club Thoroughbred fillies
that I recently purchased from you, speak volumes of your knowledge and expertise in your
breeding program. They arrived well-behaved, well-groomed, and in beautiful health. Rose
the Buckskin Thoroughbred is such a treasure, she is correct and lovely. Gold Halo, the
Palomino Sabino Thoroughbred, is not only correct, but stunning! Thank you so much for
entrusting these beauties to me. The Palomino Tobiano Paint mare I also purchased is
superb, and will produce alot of very nice quality foals. She also arrived in blooming
health and well-groomed.
Bridget, you are an excellent horse woman and equine breeder, and I look forward to doing
more business in the near future with you.

Update on Red Daffodil
Just letting you know, Daffodil is doing great and I just adore her. She is very curious
but spunky too. She loves my two year old. Nugget tries to taste him, but she just sweetly
smells him and accepts his pets on the nose. She doesn't even blink an eye at all the
noise the children make anymore.
I saw the note on Magical Gold Dust - I guess handfeeding a baby, makes it hard to sell
him, uh? I'm sure he's a doll baby.

OMG, Trillionair has arrived at his new home!!!!
Hi Bridget, he is here safe and sound, quietly eating hay in the barn at the
moment! We love him, he's just gorgeous and in such lovely condition! Thanks so much!
Running back out to see him now...will talk to you later. Thanks!!!

Gold Card Mare I Adore!
Just thought you might want to see a picture of Annalee, Gold Card's 4-year-old filly by a
QH mare. She is coming along VERY nicely and is no longer for sale! (Sure glad we didn't
sell her now.) She's been to one horse show so far and did well in intro dressage.
Absolutely everyone approached us and wanted to know all about her. Her movement is
incredible, and her disposition couldn't be better. This is the baby we had to bottle
feed, if you recall. I phoned you a couple of time during that period in a panic. We've
been working with a trainer for the past year, and will continue our schooling. I also
want to mention that several people from the southern part of Colorado talked to the
Dressage judge after Annalee's "debut." They wanted to know who we were because
they were interested in buying her. Although we don't really know the judge, we have a
mutual friend who gave us this info. But Annalee is not for sale. Her willingness and
talent are too good of qualities to let go. She's by far the nicest baby I have ever
ridden. BTW, the other grullo gelding we had by Gold Card is doing great. I talk with his
owners regularly, and they're very happy with him. Glad you still have Gold Card. Hope
he's making lots of other wonderful babies! :-)
Hope all is well with you!

Kudos to Norsire Farm
Words of praise for Norsire Farms and Bridget. I sent 2 mares (one with foal on side) to
Norsire this year to bred to Zilly. First time client. All of the horses came back in
better condition than they left, the communication was excellent.. the good and the bad
news was always handled in full understandable details and a timely fashion. (typical
maiden issues on one mare..) I was very impressed with the knowledge and detail given to
the covers, the teasing, the care, the invoicing and the vet work. I think excellence and
attention to detail is what comes to mind when I think of Norsire farm.. from the website
to the stallions to the care and knowledge level. (mares came home with complete teasing
and vet charts chronicling each day and services, easily understandable invoices, and
twice a week phone calls on update of progress with almost daily emails on progress) I
come from a TB race breeding program in KY and having such detail is helpful to me as I'm
so trained to give that to my clients and expect it from all professional breeding sheds..
so often not found in most sporthorse breeding programs. I also was keenly aware of the
hands on care Bridget gave.. she was at every vet inspection for each mare, and was at
each and every teasing.. supervising her staff, and charting the mare's progress, making
decisions for the benefit of the mare instantly and calling to request permission on all
changes. Nice to have unfiltered information with the hands on care.. allows for
thoroughness and details.. which helps make out of town first time clients rest easier
that things are in good hands.
I found the website, the stallions, and the farm off the internet and had no referrals
from people that I know that had bred there.. always scary to send money and mares to an
unknown internet contact.. but was very pleased with the outcome. I have had similar
situations that ended up sour.. so went in skeptical. My biggest lesson learned was that
you get what you pay for.. (I've been in the industry long enough to know that.. but for
some reason.. still have to learn things the hard way)
Would recommend Norsire Farm and it's stallions to friends and business partners.
Thanks so much,

Hello From Orion
Hi Aunt Bridget,
Love my half brother, Wonderland. I am schooling flying changes and my mom hopes to show
me at 3rd level later this year. In the meantime, we have had a recent lesson with Linda
Zang and she likes me. Figure that.

Gold Halo Future Race Star
Bridget, I just thought you'd like to see this response from my former BOSS at
Remington Park. He is now the Asst Racing Secretary at Sam Houston Race Park. He has been
on the race track all his life, except for the time he spent getting his education -
formal, and degreed. He has known all our babies on the track. We've raced with him at
both SamHouston and RemingtonPark. Note that he too is interested in the double registery,
and also that he is counting on a racing future for GOLD HALO. Ha.
The girls at Remington Park in my old office in the Racing OFfice have the baby pictures
on their computers now also, and they all have OOOd and AAAAAAhd at her as well.
Thanks for keeping us posted.
They are both beauties.
LOOKS LIKE A TURF HORSE TO ME! IS "GOLD HALO" DOUBLE REGISTERED? IF SO, IN 2008,
SHE CAN WIN THE PSBA DERBY AT REMINGTON, THEN GO ON AND CRUSH 'EM IN THE KENTUCKY OAKS!!!!
EARLY DERBY PICK HERE...."BANDINI" - 2ND IN THE FOUNTAIN OF YOUTH AT GULFSTREAM
LAST WEEKEND. TRAINED BY TODD PLETCHER!

Our New "Girl"
Hope all is well with Goldie. We miss her, but know you will take such good care of her.
And our hearts are filling with our new special filly - Daffodil. She is a lovely lovely
girl! Everything you said she would be! I now have the most beautiful yearlings in TX!
I can't thank you enough for your professionalism and deep care and concern for your
horses. It has been a pleasure!
Can't wait to visit next time we are in Va!

Love My Issue Of Gold Mare
Just wanted to say hi! I bought Indiscreet, the palomino mare out of Issue of
Gold, a few months back and I absolutely love her! Always wanted a palomino TB and I
finally found my dream horse! I love to come on your site and see the pictures of her
daddy and all her siblings.
January 18th, 2005
I wish you had a button for racing under what do they do. Sparkles is doing so well, she
loves to eat, and is out most of the time.Hi Bridgit,
Thank you for the update. Sparkles is doing so well, she loves to eat, and is out most of
the time. I can't tell you how PLEASED we are with her. Just today I was at the yearling
sale, and half of the yearlings don't look as good as she does. We are just thrilled!
Can't wait to get the papers. I hope to see a race with all palomino horses in it and a
race written just for palominos someday. I think I am going to start the "Exotic
Thoroughbred Horseman's Association". Wouldn't that be a hoot!
January 15th, 2005
Our new golden princess just arrived to Florida and I have to say that she is
everything we expected in more. My transaction with you Bridget was flawless, thanks for
being such a good horsewoman. I would buy again from Norsire! Start looking to see a
Palomino TB at a track near you!

Just a note to let you know that Aussie continues to be a one-in-a-million personality. My
trainer said he is "WONDERFUL", and I've never heard her say that before (about
people or horses!) He won "Best decorated stall" at the Christmas party, and
reserve champion in the costume contest! (He was a Christmas Angel :-)! He almost didn't
get to compete
-when he took one look at the pony dressed as Santa and said "Later Dudes! I'm outta
here!) But, he got over it
-and even though his halo kept slipping the judge was taken with him! He doesn't have a
mean bone in his body...and lives to please. I can't wait til I have my own barn, so that
I can "customize" one of my own foals! (It would be hard to improve on Aussie,
Thanks again for sharing your "Boy" with us. Wendy, Dave,Meagan, Cosmo, and
Tucker! P.S. The barn cat has taken to living in his stall, by his grain dish. He takes a
-sniffs the cat
-and takes another bite. No mice in that stall!!! Also, the mare in the next stall has a
HUGE crush on him! Too bad he's gelded
At least if he ever ends up in equine therapy
-we'll know the source of his trauma!

I must say...Titus really stamped those two pals of his this year. I so saw the
same markings in many of your foal crop. I really love that liver chestnut of yours. I
know she is not a pal, but secretly...I love the chestnut color...then palomino; that is a
very close race.
Titus is coming along very well. I do have some problems with him being too social. But,
he is still a baby and trying to get everywhere he wants...and will learn he can't go
everywhere he wishes. Ahhahahha I really like his personality, he is very sweet just a
handful at times. I will be happy when he is 7 or 8! Ahahahha

I bred my mare to Billionair a couple of years ago. I have some pictures of him from this
summer. I took him to a local H/J show and entered him in some of the breeding classes.
I've been told by quite a few people that I should take him to the bigger shows. I didn't
know if you know anyone who I could contact? He is currently 15'3" and growing like a
weed. He has a large star connecting stripe and large snip and white under his lower lip,
a 3/4 stocking on one hind and a very jagged stocking on the other hind. I am planning on
getting some better pictures taken by a professional photographer. If you are interested
in seeing them, I'll send then to you. I have started breaking him this fall and he is an
absolute sweetheart to work with. He has a huge stride and just seems to float
effortlessly across the ground.

Ebony Gold Orchid is Gorgeous!
I normally shy away from people who breed for color but its
obvious from what Ive seen on your web site that you breed for quality and the color
is the icing on the nice cake! I was browsing your website
(recommendation of a fellow horse breeder I know) and came across your page for this
filly. You are right, shes stunning and breathtaking. Not just her color attracted
me; I like her shape, especially how her legs set into her body, her overall balance, etc.
You have done very well with the horses Ive seen on your site and I would like to
compliment you on all of them. Thanks for sharing these photos and best of luck with this
particularly special little filly!

I am writing to let you know just how well Aussie is doing! In May, we traveled to Ohio
for the summer to escape the Texas heat. We started out at a small property called
Rosetown Stables which we loved. They in turn, introduced us to Fox Meadow Farm in
Temperance, MI, where Aussie and I could get the proper traing we both required. We went
there June 21st, and met Meg Howard, who is the most positve, dynamic, and talented horse
trainer I have yet to meet. (How I have gotten so lucky...first finding Aussie, and then
finding Meg is totally beyond me!)
Meg started training Aussie 3 days a week, and by July 18th, I signed him up for his first
"B" show. I entered him in 6 Baby Green classes, and was completely bowled over
when he took first place in his first class of 25 horses, over fences. After that class he
took 3 third places to end the show with 4 ribbons in 6 classes. He definitely loves being
a "Hunter". 2 weeks later I entered him in a "C" show, and he came
home with 4 more ribbons out of 8 classes. One 2nd, a third, a fifth, and a sixth. I was
particularly proud of the 6th, as it was in the hack, and another large class. Meg wasn't
able to ride him in that class, so he and his new rider "Audrey" had very little
time to get to know one another. I was totally surprised, and very pleased when they came
away with the green ribbon.
It was very amusing to stand by the ring and hear the whispers of people about the
"registered palomino thoroughbred". Its true
-he stands out
but so far its worked in his favor. He is a lovely guy! Sensible, sweet, with a great work
ethic. He's only 5, but he loves what he's doing, and apparently the judges thought he did
So now that I am done bragging about my "boy", I'd just like to say to anyone
looking at Bridget's horses. "Yes she can be trusted
-yes she knows of what she speaks." If you are one of the lucky few who get to
purchase one of Bridgets horses
-you will have received the gift of a lifetime. Thanks again, Bridget!

I'm sending a little update on Aussie White Gold
....(and perhaps bragging a bit, too!) I shipped Aussie to Ohio for the summer so that he,
my daughter Meagan, and I could escape the Texas heat. We started out at a beautiful small
property called Rosetown stables. They, in turn introduced me to Fox Meadow Farm, in
Temperance, MI., where I could get the proper training for both Aussie and myself. We went
to Fox Meadow on June 21st, and began training with Meg Howard. (The whole Howard family
is involved in the business, and are legendary in that part of the country!) Well, Meg
turns out to be the most positive, dynamic horsetrainer I have yet to come across. (I
don't know what I did to deserve such good fortune...first finding Aussie, and then
finding Meg....but hey
-why question it now???)
Anyway, I sent Aussie to Hunter's Run, for his first "B" show, and signed him up
for 6 Baby Green classes with Meg riding him. In his first class of 25, over fences,
Aussie got the Blue Ribbon!!!! He took 3 more thirds in that competition, and made his
"Mama" very proud!!! Its very amusing to be standing by the ring watching him go
and overhear the whispers of other people. Mostly, they can't believe he is a registered
thoroughbred. (Must have some quarterhorse....NOT!!!) Then they go a bit green, when he
walks away with the ribbons. I know I am gloating...but I've endured one to many
"experts" tell me that there is no such thing as a Jockey Club registered
Anyway, at Aussie's 2nd show he came home with a 2nd, 3rd 5th and a 6th. I was
particularly proud of the 6th in the hack, which was another class of twenty-something.
Meg wasn't able to ride him for me, so she threw on a young talent at the barn, named
Audrey, who had very little time to get to know Aussie, so I was quite surprised and
pleased to see them get the green ribbon!
Meg has told me on more than one occasion how lucky I got in purchasing Aussie "on my
own". He is kind and sensible, especially for being only 5. He has a great work
ethic, and loves to please. His lead changes came to him effortlessly, which has been a
huge plus. No, I never took a trainer to see Aussie
-I bought him the day that I met him. I followed my heart, while trying to ask all the
right questions. Some people think I got lucky....I think it was a "God-thing".
(And I thank Him every day.) The moral to my story???? You can trust Bridget
-she doesn't have to tell any stories
-her horses are the proof. If you see one there that you like
go with your heart...you won't regret it.
