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.

Positive Outcome to Anticipated “Irish Challenge”

Well it’s been a week and we “found” Irish hidden beneath his stubborn façade. My trainer rode him and I rode him a couple of times and finally yesterday we got a break through! He tested us pretty good, BUT he couldn’t stand us persistently asking him “to listen”, and finally we saw the “schoolmaster”…

Ides Pride May Be Available For Sale

“Seary” (Ides Pride) is doing well, she is back in work and doing really well. We are jumping x-rails about once a week. The rest of our time has been spent on flat work, still trying to move her muscle back up where it belongs as you can see in the pictures I have attached she has a bit of a baby belly.

Wiseguy’s Out a Competitive Jumper

I wanted to send you a success stories update on Wiseguy’s Out. He’s doing awesome. I thought we had him sold to a trainer in Texas but they were looking for a smaller horse. He was reserve champ at local H/J show in the low hunters and showed Level One jumpers at two “AA” rated…

Titania aka “Titanium” Sails Home to Her New Mom!

Titania arrived at her new home yesterday, November 19, around 3:30 PM. She unloaded and was totally calm and relaxed, despite the cold weather and the seven horses staring at her from their fields. She went into her stall and looked out the window and watched the other horses and they were led inside. She…

Red Hot To Handle Still in Her Winter Coat

I went out to the barn and took these at lunch. Ron told me that her winter coat was coming out and he didn’t lie. I was not quite expecting this though. A little elbow grease and medicated baths should take care of the problem though. I have not had time to start grooming because…

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…

Happy Birthday Fast Commander!

I am attaching some recent pictures of Fast Commander out in my front pasture & on his first real trail ride this past weekend. It was beautiful weather, so there were lots of people walking dogs or riding bikes on these trails – it’s a public park. He looked at lots of things at first, but then settled nicely. He even crossed the stream twice without hesitation.

Cortableau Gets a Mom!

Cortableau spent a few days of well earned R&R at the Bits & Bytes Farm “Spa” where he received laser treatments, stretching exercises and lunging. He learned to eat grass and run free again! And he chilled with the other ex-racers on the farm who, we’re sure, told him that his racing days were over. Stevie Loverboy chatted with “Bleau” over the fence, “There’s no track here. These people are nice.” By the time his new mom Laura arrived on Friday he was feeling good and ready to meet his new family.
