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.

Leader Board’s Racing Videos Sought by New Mom

Leader Board is doing great and our trainer couldn’t be more impressed with him. He is really a sweet, laid back boy. Which brings me to the question. I think you mentioned that there is a website that has videos you can purchase of his old races. We have recently become very curious how Leader…

Atlantic Ridge and new mom Salisa

Riding Ridge

It has been two months since I moved Ridge to another barn, and I wanted to let you know that Ridge and I are doing great! My new barn is also located next to a lot of trails, so I am able to do trail rides with my daughter. Ridge seems to enjoy them!

Who’s Exercising Who?

Then I got an idea, I started jogging around the circle where he normally lunges and kissed to him, he walked after me, but as I directed more energy to him and encouraged him he picked up a trot and followed me right around; we circled, and went both ways, all the while Aly trotting along so briskly after me! Then I thought, oh my goodness this is glorious, and had to try even more, so I veered off, down the pasture, and sped up a bit – he followed right along, tossing his head. We must have played like that for a good hour off and on, and I could tell we both had a blast.

“Bubba” goes Commando

“Bubba” (Lynn’s Vision) and I tried to ride with a hackamore today. We decided to try going bitless. His new teeth are making his mouth a little sore and he hasn’t learned yet to put down his head and my hands are not very soft. So when we ride his nose is up and he’s…

OTTB Light Artillery has Gone Western and Ain’t Lookin’ Back

I’ve been home nearly a month, I can’t believe it! Most of the time home has been spent doing all the welcome home kinda gatherings. A lot of the other time has been very wet! This is good though because in a week the grass got waist high. I really wanted to get the pastures…

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…

Construction’s Checklist: Canters (check), Crosses Creeks (check), Coups (check) and Carrots (check, check, check….)

“Gus” (Construction) is so incredibly happy with his new career and new home at Bits & Bytes Farm. His personality comes out more and more everyday and I absolutely adore him. He has recently perfected the art of rolling (every single inch of his body gets covered with dust) and decided he has a LOVE…
