Rocky Bear & Elizabeth

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.

Bubba Encounters the Gates of Hell and They are Guarded by Three Ornery Arabs

Bubba and I have enjoyed being at Bits & Bytes Farm for the last month. But I think its time for him to come home and meet his new siblings, my three white Arabians (GG, Nettie and Kain) and little brown pony, Joe. I’ve fixed broken fencing and reset a few crooked posts. I’ve gone…

Taking “Commander” in Every Direction

Fast Commander is doing well. I think he looks great, having put on a lot of needed weight and starting to develop some muscles with regular work under saddle. He is so big already, it’s hard to imagine he’s only three and has more growing to do. He has progressed nicely in his flat work.…

Pulling Shoes No Biggie for “Icy”

Just wanted to brag about Icy again. Yesterday we did a little round pen stuff, and he was very calm. I also pulled one of his front shoes since he lost the other one in the pasture. It takes me a lot longer to pull a shoe than it does for the farrier to do…

“Casper’s” Friendly Halloween Message…

The new website looks great! I love what you did with “Casper’s (Familiar Ghost’s) site.” Terrific! “Casper” is doing well – actually jumped him over a very small “x” two weeks ago. He wasn’t all that thrilled, but I certainly was. I’m unable to ride for a couple of weeks. Wish I could say I…

Home Sweet Home for Dixon’s Chief

                            Dixons Chief arrived about 10pm last night. He is a cutie! His pictures did not due him justice! Where I have my boys at there is a very narrow one-lane road that leads to the barn, so I had the shipper…
