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.

Taken Chances Takes Third on First Test

Taken Chances Takes Third on First Test

Chance is doing great. I am just thrilled with him. He went to his first combined test this past weekend at Full Gallop Farm in Aiken, SC and was very good. He ended up third in the amoeba division. He is jumping bigger at home but I didn’t want to overwhelm him at his first…

“Tru’ly Amazing” – “Marvin’s” Brother Arrives at His New Home

I had a group of friends with me tonight celebrating Tru Native’s arrival. Not ONE of them could believe he was a OTTB! This is one of the biggest Thoroughbreds I have ever seen.

Callie’s Wright – First Ride!

I couldn’t wait to e-mail you because today’s first ride on Callie’s Wright went fantastic!!! I was very pleased that she moves really good off my leg, so I don’t have to use much hands. We practiced circles, bending, changing directions. . .

Bubba and I Met the Tooth Fairy and Her Name is Elizabeth!

Just wanted to send a quick note to thank the “Tooth Fairy” for yanking out Bubba’s second baby tooth in two weeks. Bubs is about four and a half and his physical stature is like that of a teenager. He’s growing up right in front of me – what’s next? shaving? Thanks Elizabeth! You can…

Hollywood Vic Is In Hiding

Hollywood Vic Is In Hiding

After a few seconds, I hear the thunder of hooves behind me, I turn and there is my Hollywood galloping up towards me in the pasture behind me. I said, “THERE YOU ARE!” He looked at me, spun around and ran back up to the door of the barn (that leads to the pasture he was in ) and waited for me! Now how smart is that? He saw me walk by and came to tell me to come and get him! That just made my day, no my week, no my month!

Helmet – check, Phone – check, Brakes – check, Seatbelt?

December was full of new experiences for Tux (aka Bato Loco) and me. We went on our first field trip to another farm to ride. He loaded beautifully; however, he whinnied the entire drive. I wonder if he thought I was sending him back to the track! We were both nervous, but I think we…
