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.

Dr. Kenny Winn – Just What the Doctor Ordered

Kwinn let out one of those contented snorts all over Adam, then just rested his head across his shoulder! I laughed so hard at the sight of my non-horsey husband bonding with our big guy!!

Joe Bear’s Smooth Moves Win Two Blues

The show last weekend was fantastic. Joe was an absolute star. He acted like an old veteran the whole day. It was a dressage show at that newish facility ten minutes up the road. My ride times were quite spread apart, giving us a lot of time to just hang out. He was not nervous…

OTTB “Sully’s” Sunny Attitude Marvels All

“Sullivan” is finally looking like a grey! His coat has darkened considerably since he has been on night turnout during the summer months. I’m hoping he will keep his black points. He has two pasture buddies, a large retired, carriage pulling draft and another grey. The grey is the same age as “Sully” so it…
