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.

Home Sweet Home for Dixon’s Chief
Dixons Chief arrived about 10pm last night. He is a cutie! His pictures did not due him justice! Where I have my boys at there is a very narrow one-lane road that leads to the barn, so I had the shipper…
Grey Thoroughbred Horse For Sale – My Isabell- SOLD!
My Isabell is a gorgeous horse with loads of potential. When I purchased Izzy I was a stay at home mom and thought I would have plenty of time to work with her, but I have had to go back to work full time and sadly that means she is not getting worked much at all. Izzy is incredibly smart and sensitive with a great work ethic. She likes to be out doing things and learning and I just don’t have the time to give her what she needs. I would love to see her go to someone who will put her in a regular program where she will be mentally and physically stimulated.
OTTB Gold’s Anatomy – Good as Gold!
Gold’s Anatomy attends his first school show only four months off the track.
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.
Hollywood Vic – SOLD! February 2008
SOLD! Congratulations Cheri Jackson of Woodstock, Georgia! Here was his Prospect Horse FOR SALE information: Hollywood Vic was one of our 25 Special Horses. He was purchased by our favorite trainer to learn how to become a racehorse. He was too laid back and slow so he was offered for sale to a “forever home”.…
Love at First Meeting!
….I didn’t even quite realize who was over in that pasture, until Barry said “now Aly….stays over in this pasture” and I just about exploded in a scream, I don’t think words can describe what happens when you feel the soft muzzle of an Aly BaYboy for the first time, I felt so quiet when I first touched him, I think its because such feelings, just can’t be expressed, that’s all there is to it.
Red Hot to Handle is “Hotzie” to Trotzie
I wanted to give you a quick update on “Hotzie”. She is doing really well. I have had been dealing with a fungal infection in her eye for about two months. She has been an angel about the treatments though (sometimes up to three times each day). I have not been able to work her…
Brett is a Handy Hunter
Hi Elizabeth, What a fantastic show, and what an idea. Ann Rusuck is an owner/breeder/trainer of TB racehorses who a few years ago got involved in rescue–much of her work done with Anna Ford of New Vocations. She has put together a show that is a showcase for these horses, as well as the most…
Racing Roomies Reunite: Bubba & Hollywood Vic
Bubba is quite content living at Bits & Bytes Farm. He is an extremely kind soul, enjoys snuggles and has a willing attitude. He is extremely conscious of the horse hierarchy and just likes to stay out of trouble. I would say he’s probably a bit more comfortable around people than other horses with one…
