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.

Reign Day Has a Quiet Rainy Day

I have to say, I’m pretty sure that Reign Day is not very impressed with the climate here in Massachusetts so far–today was overcast and dreary and it rained on and off. He had a very laid-back, quiet, “settle-in” day. I played with him in the aisle, gave him a good long groom, did his carrot stretches and a bit of backing up.

A “Familiar Ghost” named “Casper”

Ghost (aka “Casper”) has settled in just fine. He’s a little worried about the golf carts we use on the farm, and he’s not too sure about water troughs, but other than that he’s having the time of his life. He is breath taking and gorgeous. Thank you again for this lovely animal. He is incredible. I loved working…

Just About Perfect – Brat Maverick

Maverick was relaxed all day. He is no longer pacing the fence but instead ventures out to join the herd. Everyone is commenting on how beautiful he is of course, and add to that that he is as sweet as can be, I would say he is just about perfect.

Punch is a Knock Out!

We rode him for the first time the third day he was here and he was great! He’s very calm about everything and we walked and trotted around for a while. Yesterday he went on his first trail ride with our other gelding around our property and he really enjoyed it.

“Sage” is (at) Home on the Range

Home…Home on the range (in Texas)…..Sage is now finally here with me and he has a new best friend Tiger. Both of them are 4 year-old OTTBs and they are both beautiful fiery red chestnuts. You would think they are long lost brothers, because they are inseparable. They don’t leave each others side….even though they are turned out with three other horses. If you take one of them away from the other they whinny at each other it’s hilarious.

WOOHOO!!!

WOOHOO!!! That about describes our day today. I attribute this to Kwinn’s feeling better. While he’s filled out and is generally looking better, you can see in his eyes that he’s feeling better. We had a good time riding today. Kwinn behaved well even when the mares in the field started galloping across the field.…

Painted Black is “Bella”

Bella (Painted Black) is doing very well! She is a very congenial filly….takes things in stride and very matter of fact. She has put on weight nicely and her coat has a great sheen to it. Just doing some stretching and general handling….she is my baby.
