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.

Breaking the “Icy” with Mares is Tough

Another story for you…Icy is getting along fine and does well with Coin, Dudley and the Appys. I think there is a consortium of mares (led by Leslie’s big chestnut Thoroughbred) to keep him from really getting into the herd yet. I found him down in the stall (our barn has a section of wash…

Maverick (Light Artillery) is doing great! Today it actually snowed in west texas and I took some picts of the flurries on his mane! He’s still a talker, whinnies for me any time the back sliding door opens or when I get home!

Wolfie’s first USEF/USHJA Rated Show

Hi Elizabeth, Well what a weekend! This was Wolfie’s first USEF/USHJA rated show. We opted to do the full (5 classes) Low Adult Hunter Division at the height we had been doing rather than try to do a 3’ Division. I am hoping by the Fall we will be ready for that. Anyway, we shipped…

Theironman’s Will gets Zapped – “Help Me Mommy”

Well after much consideration I have come up with a BARN NAME for Ironman. This is only his barn name and will not replace his registered name (don’t even know if he is registered). I have come up with the name “Taggert” or “Tagg” for short. I currently use both, “Taggert” when I want his…

Fuhrluck aka “Seven” Still Lucky in 2010!

It’s been a long time. I just wanted to share a couple of photos of Fuhrluck aka “Seven” with you. As you can see he’s looking great! I still regularly keep in contact with his new owner, Dayna and I see him whenever I’m back in Ohio. I can’t imagine a happier, more loved horse.

Taking It Slow Pays Off . . .

That was around 3 weeks ago. We made quite some miles in the last few weeks. From my last email till now he improved a lot and I decided to give it a try and entered in the Poplar Place schooling show last weekend. And I can tell you he was great…I had entered us in a 2′ jumper class and the Intro A Dressage Test.
