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.

“Casper’s” Friendly Halloween Message…

The new website looks great! I love what you did with “Casper’s (Familiar Ghost’s) site.” Terrific! “Casper” is doing well – actually jumped him over a very small “x” two weeks ago. He wasn’t all that thrilled, but I certainly was. I’m unable to ride for a couple of weeks. Wish I could say I…

No Rapping These Fences!

Ol’ Rap (Rap It Up) is making steady progress. He is jumping better with each practice, he acts like he has had some previous schooling over jumps because he is already jumping so well. He gets a bit nervous at times but overall he has been very willing to do what I ask of him.

First Ride Conclusion: Aly is da Bomb!!!

Ok, that title looks like not a very good description for a horse, especially one that behaved so fantastically on our first ride together, but he is an explosion of awesomeness for me. I’m still in that silent awe at how sweet Tucks St. Aly is, and how good he’s been to me. On the…
