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.

“Blah, Blah, Blah, Blah, Carrot”. Communication – Learning to Understand Your Horse

I think I said yesterday that feeling through that bit, I could feel that Aly and I were talking to each other, and indeed we were, we both knew that each other were there, we both were having feelings, I was all excited and atwitter about being on my own horse for the first time, who wouldn’t be! And he was all busy keeping the girl that gives him peppermints and has been sweet to him so far safe. Today though, not only did we talk, we did something a lot better, we understood each other.

Irish Loves to Jump!

Irish is doing well and looks great. His dapples are better then ever.

I will try to send you a video of one of our jumping lessons soon. He is turning into a real jumper. You would be impressed at how well he can move in and out of the jumps. Irish also has a girlfriend named Princess. It’s a little mini. It’s so cute!
