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.

Mr. Inquisitive – “Hey, They Never Did This at the Track”
“Qu” (Mr. Inquisitive) was so good today. He put up with us rearranging antlers, trying on ones that had jingle bells but wouldn’t stand up. He was probably getting a little annoyed! He’s out with my older gelding tonight and they are getting along well. Suzie

OTTB Saxon Warrior Arrives Home Safely!
Saxon Warrior arrived savely at the farm and is enjoying his small pasture turnout. He was immediately quiet on the pasture and never started running. He is a very sweet boy with a great personality, and he really likes people and other horses!…
17 Hands and Still Growing!
Fast Commander is great though and seems to retain everything despite erratic schedules. He has jumped up to 3ft in lessons. He has really become more coordinated & athletic as he has matured, and he has gotten quite good in his lateral work. Anywhere we go, someone asks, “How big is he?” (17HH & still all legs.) He’s a pleasure to ride & I think he has a ton of talent. Read More . . .
Scottish Water Horse?
I was just thinking about you this week and about needing to send you an update on A June Affair. Although, I have tweaked her barn name a bit as I thought she needed something a little less plain than June. I call her Kelpie or Kelpie June. Do you know what a Kelpie is? It’s from the Scottish legend of the water horse.
