Rocky Bear and Bits & Bytes Farm owner - Elizabeth

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.

Desensitizing Techniques for the 21st Century: Laptops & Kitty Cats

Also, for the record, as seems very fitting to me, since he is from Bits & Bytes Farm, Aly has been properly desensitized to laptops! The other night I took mine out there to work on homework a bit, and although I didn’t get much work done, I did get some done with Aly! When I sat down beside his stall and opened the laptop, boy did his nostrils flare!

Mr. Inquisitive – “Hey, They Never Did This at the Track”

“Qu” (Mr. Inquisitive) was so good today. He put up with us rearranging antlers, trying on ones that had jingle bells but wouldn’t stand up. He was probably getting a little annoyed! He’s out with my older gelding tonight and they are getting along well. Suzie

Stevie Loverboy – A Bit of Advice Can Bring New Inspiration

Elizabeth, thank you again for the amazing lesson this afternoon. It was remarkable how quickly Stevie Loverboy calmed down and got to work. He just visibly relaxed and his demeanor changed within a minute of you working with us. I feel like we accomplished more today than we have in the last month! It really reinforced…

Happy New Year from Allegiant and Amanda

Allegiant and I are doing great. I overheard my trainer talking with someone on the trail say, “I am not a big fan of thoroughbreds, but I do like her mare.”

Hollywood Vic Is In Hiding

After a few seconds, I hear the thunder of hooves behind me, I turn and there is my Hollywood galloping up towards me in the pasture behind me. I said, “THERE YOU ARE!” He looked at me, spun around and ran back up to the door of the barn (that leads to the pasture he was in ) and waited for me! Now how smart is that? He saw me walk by and came to tell me to come and get him! That just made my day, no my week, no my month!
