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.

My Mail Order “Groom” Arrived!

My Mail Order “Groom” Arrived!

My mail order groom (Eleanor’s Groom) arrived this morning (after three days standing on the trailer – thank goodness he had a box stall). He’s beautiful and seems to be a lovely mover also. I turned him into the arena for a run and a roll before he went into his paddock. He is calm…

Michelle and Elizabeth, The heat is tremendous. I get soaked to the bone going to the barn. However, we’re all coping. Goldie has transitioned well to his new home. He makes friends easily. He has a pony buddy, a little paint. And all the ladies, girls and little girls at the barn LOVE him –…

Joe Bear’s Smooth Moves Win Two Blues

Joe Bear’s Smooth Moves Win Two Blues

The show last weekend was fantastic. Joe was an absolute star. He acted like an old veteran the whole day. It was a dressage show at that newish facility ten minutes up the road. My ride times were quite spread apart, giving us a lot of time to just hang out. He was not nervous…

Straight From the Horse’s Mouth – Tucks St. Aly Checks In from Texas

Straight From the Horse’s Mouth – Tucks St. Aly Checks In from Texas

Well, first off, let me tell you, the honeymoon is over! This girl now, instead of giving me 3 peppermints every time she comes to see me….now only gives me maybe 3 or 6 per day. Imagine that, peppermint consumption going from 30 per day to only maybe 6 per day….I’m sure you feel for me. Not only that, but we are finally in a dadgum thing called a ‘regime’. Instead of getting 4 or 5 meals a day, as when I first got here, it’s now back to 3, and no 30 minutes early stuff either.

Love at First Meeting!

Love at First Meeting!

….I didn’t even quite realize who was over in that pasture, until Barry said “now Aly….stays over in this pasture” and I just about exploded in a scream, I don’t think words can describe what happens when you feel the soft muzzle of an Aly BaYboy for the first time, I felt so quiet when I first touched him, I think its because such feelings, just can’t be expressed, that’s all there is to it.
