This Web site was created to tell the stories of the Off-the-Track Thoroughbreds Bits & Bytes Farm has sold. The Mission of Bits & Bytes Farm is to help sellers (of Thoroughbred racehorses for sale) to find buyers who have the ability to transition these horses to new careers. We offer assistance and guidance to make sure the horses we sell are successfully placed. Our Success Stories are proof that Thoroughbred racehorses make great sport horses and family members when their racing careers are over.
When a horse is purchased with the assistance of Bits & Bytes Farm, we require the new owners to stay in touch and provide us with updates. These updates are posted on our Success Stories pages so that the sellers of the horses know that their horses are doing well and have not gone back to racing or been slaughtered. The sellers care about these wonderful Thoroughbreds and they too enjoy reading about their horses' successful new careers. They often call or e-mail to thank us for finding a home for a horse they bred or trained. To learn more about Bits & Bytes Farm and our mission please visit our Web site at: www.BitsandBytesFarm.com.

Round and Round She Goes
I used some warm water to get the worst of the newly acquired mud cakes off of her since this morning and she was fine with that and all—-except….the Show Sheen……now I see her tucking her hindquarters under and elevating her forehand and balance and energy—-when doing a circle….a very small circle….about an arms length actually —around me—while I held the halter with one hand—and sprayed while she ran around me in the other hand…..Patrick was dying laughing and took great pleasure in telling me “Dad—you know she really can step under and cross over pretty well now”
Mr Inquisitive/Mr. Wonderful – One Year Later
I bought Mr. Inquisitive from you when he was 3 years old last December. He has been such a pleasure. I have been taking it slow with his training since I am in no hurry and he seemed to benefit from this approach. He is an excellent jumper-my trainer loves him.
Nothing Scary as Ghost Quietly Canters
Cantered Casper today, both ways of the arena! He’s a little unbalanced, but has a delightful, “up” canter and is quiet, quiet, quiet. He is absolutely fabulous. Lesli
Blind Friend Introduces Trail Riding to Little Silic
Little Silic (aka “Shaman”) LOVES going out on the trails with his friend “Rox”, who is incredible. It’s amazing that he has no eyes and is teaching “Shaman” not to be afraid of anything. My friend Lee, is the proud and humble owner of “Rox.” It has been quite a journey for both of them…
Midtown Manhattan’s First Ride with New Mom, Katie

Wolfie’s first USEF/USHJA Rated Show
Hi Elizabeth, Well what a weekend! This was Wolfie’s first USEF/USHJA rated show. We opted to do the full (5 classes) Low Adult Hunter Division at the height we had been doing rather than try to do a 3’ Division. I am hoping by the Fall we will be ready for that. Anyway, we shipped…
Sweet Things in Texas for Better Be There
I am very happy – he is so sweet. He loves to have his face rubbed. He does need some weight on him. I am giving him Omelene 200 and alfalfa so far, now I have only had him since Friday afternoon so any suggestions would be great. He does not seem to like grass…

Painted Black Shines at Her New Home in Arizona
Painted Black aka Bella, is doing very well! She is a very congenial filly….takes things in stride and very matter of fact. She has put on weight nicely and her coat has a great sheen to it. . . She calls to me when she sees me now and gives many kisses. When you kiss her on the nose she makes those lippy faces that are quite funny.
