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.

Dr. Kenny Winn – Two Years and Goin’ Strong

Dr. Kenny Winn – Two Years and Goin’ Strong

We’ve done a lot of natural horsemanship techniques with him, and it’s working VERY well. He’s making amazing strides. Of course it helps that he’s intelligent and catches on quickly. Once he knows what is expected, he relaxes. And, he doesn’t like mindless work. He will lose interest and focus if you just ride him around in the ring at a trot or canter. So, we change it up by asking him for transitions. Seems to keep his mind on you much better.

It is hard to believe it is the middle of October already and we have had Bo for five weeks. We have been busy. My friend Staci had the last of the fall shows and her older event horse came up lame. Old age gets us all eventually. I guess the timing is perfect since…

Flame Warms the Hearts of His New Moms

Flame is doing great in his new home! He’s adorable and playful like a really big puppy. Mom and I lunged him when he first got here and seemed to be great! So I saddled up and rode with the lunge line for the first couple days. After I was completely comfortable with him, I…

“Seven’s” Luck Continues with New Owner

“Seven’s” Luck Continues with New Owner

When I bought Fuhrluck, aka “Seven”, in July of 2007, I would never have considered selling him except for the fact that my trainer, Dayna seemed to have fallen in love with him. I decided it would be best to sell him to someone who had the time to work with him. To be perfectly…
