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.

Why Did the Moose Cross the Road? To Find a Great Home
“Moose”, aka Popular One, is great. He really trusts us. We are absolutely thrilled with him. He is so laid back. He is very calm. I think he loves his new life. We have taken it very slow with him. He is in a pasture during the day with three other geldings and gets along…
Painted Black is “Bella”
Bella (Painted Black) is doing very well! She is a very congenial filly….takes things in stride and very matter of fact. She has put on weight nicely and her coat has a great sheen to it. Just doing some stretching and general handling….she is my baby.
Buying an OTTB Can Raise Eyebrows
Amanda experienced what a lot of buyers of off-the-track Thoroughbreds experience – negative comments from people who know nothing about OTTBs. She was told inaccurate and totally ridiculous stories about what to expect from an off-the-track Thoroughbred.
Colorful Weekend for OTTB Austin’s Wolf
OTTB Austin’s Wolf and Laurie do well at a recent weekend horse show.
Enjoying Life After Racing
We had a perfect day today (weather) and both horses took full advantage of it on the soft ground. Thought you’d enjoy seeing Taxi with Cait’s other horse, Pepper. We’ve never had two horses lay down together like this. We were working on the fence near them so after seeing if we needed any help they decided to crash.
