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.

Winter Break

Winter Break

Goldie is so funny in the snow. He and his buddy Ice love the cold weather and and play across the fence all the time. I think they’re getting cabin fever and their blankets are getting the worst of it. That part isn’t funny. Well, only had to snowshoe out to feed twice so I guess it could be worse.

Tax Hike - Thoroughbred sold by Bits & Bytes Farm

Checking In

I’m attaching a few pictures of Cait and Taxi that I took yesterday. Both are doing great. When we decided to buy a horse sight unseen and from across the country we had no idea it would turn out so perfect. I can’t thank you enough for making this happen.

Rightfully Bragging on Bato Loco

Rightfully Bragging on Bato Loco

I love Bata Loco! He is such a character. He LOVES jumps. He’ll cross creeks, but he’ll jump them too if I let him. He gets so fired up! We plan to go to the beach soon. That will be an adventure. I also will be taking some dressage lessons with him to see just what he can do in the arena… He is such a treat!

Mother Nature Helps with Dakota Spirit and Chilletecaux

Hey, I don’t do well with too much time on my hands… with a few lovely days my boys are ready for more. They are on track for a x-c school given they seem bored with small SJ at home – more dressage of course – but we have it ‘please let’s go play!’ Mother…

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.

Sweet Things in Texas for Better Be There

Sweet Things in Texas for Better Be There

I am very happy – he is so sweet. He loves to have his face rubbed. He does need some weight on him. I am giving him Omelene 200 and alfalfa so far, now I have only had him since Friday afternoon so any suggestions would be great. He does not seem to like grass…

Bubba Does Dressage

Bubba Does Dressage

I’ve heard the other folks at the barn talk about those special moments when you and your horse make a huge leap forward, and this past weekend Bubba and I enjoyed one of those precious moments.

Trail Riding Off-the-Track Thoroughbred

Trail Riding Off-the-Track Thoroughbred

We just got back in from the camping trip. We had a wonderful time! Maverick was absolutely the best! He got ridden six times! He munched on lots of new clover and loved all the attention, as always, since he was the BIG horse and would stick his head way out and stretch his neck way out from the stall. He’d nicker when he heard us stirring around the camp site.
