In our search for sound, sane horses, we often come across horses that are kind and beautiful but are not perfect enough for our Prospect Horses for Sale page or to bring to Bits & Bytes Farm. We have very high standards for the horses we list on our Web site.

Many times we come across horses that have a soundness problem that can be solved with time. Sometimes, they may need a career without jumping but would make excellent dressage horses or pleasure or trail horses. Sometimes the horses are sound but just small or need to find a home ASAP! If the price is really low, then the horse will sell fast. We require references for anyone interested in a Bargain Barn Horse. We never want to hear of someone taking one of these horses to auction.

We know from experience that we can place these horses but we did not want to confuse our mission: Finding good homes for sane and sound Thoroughbreds who are sound to compete in the show ring or eventing and fox hunting. We hope by our Success Stories that people will begin to understand that there are many Thoroughbreds who come off-the-track and are STILL SOUND and can excel in a new career.

But of course, there are many who have raced too long and now need a less challenging career. They still have value and these Thoroughbreds are the ones most at risk of going to auction. The rescue organizations are the safety net for these horses. The rescue groups do a tremendous job of saving these horses but they have limited resources and many times the waiting list to donate a horse is over a year! Please donate to a rescue group! You can find a list on our Links page. The rescue groups would like to save all of the horses but the resources do not allow for that.

Our Web site has become extremely successful and we have almost a 1000 people a day visiting our site! We are NOT a non profit rescue group but we can help place the horses that no one wants because they are not perfect for showing or they are small. We love all the Thoroughbreds and we want to do our part to help the horses most in need - and so we bring you our Bargain Barn page.

These horses are all especially well priced and may even be FREE to a good home (Vetting and shipping are the buyers responsibility).These horses have injuries that may or may not be fixed with an operation or time. We will share everything we know. If x-rays or other diagnostics are available, we will provide these. These horses should be closely evaluated by a veterinarian who will give you his professional opinion of what will be the best career option for the horse. If you really aren't going to do jumping and your budget is limited you should shop this page first!

The newest Bargain Barn horses are located on the new Bargain Barn page.

Stevie Loverboy has a new mom! Congratulations to our "Friend" Missy Miller. Stevie Loverboy will be boarding at Bits & Bytes Farm. September 5, 2007

Stevie Loverboy is a three year-old 15.3 hand COLT. He should mature to well over 16 hands. He is currently on stall rest due to the fact that he got cast in his stall and hurt his back end. He needs two more weeks of stall rest then a month of hand walking then three months of turn out. He has never raced, but was ready, when he got hurt. He is a great mover with no vices. His legs are clean with no blemishes. Both excersise riders say he is a blast to ride very kind and easy going. The only reason "Loverboy" has a chain on his lip is we were right by the track and did not want him to jump around because he has been on stall rest. He stood like a perfect gentleman just looking at the track. He is easy to handle on the ground and very well mannered for a colt who hasn't done anything in two weeks. He should grow to well over 16 hands. The vet feels he will be 100% given a little time to rest. SOLD! Read Stevie Loverboy's Success Stories.

Unanimous

Unanimous found a home with Stephanie Bone of Columbus, GA. July 29, 2007

Unanimous aka "Gunner" - FOUND A HOME!
Thank you Stephanie Bone of Phenix City, AL. She made a donation to the Equamore Foundation to help a former Bits & Bytes Farm horse - Lord Sexton.

Unanimous is a 15'2 hand 2005 gelding. He is a beautiful and kind horse. He still has four years of growing to do so he should end up over 16 hands. He has had 6 months of riding but is not going to make it as a race horse. He had a piece of wood go thru his foot as a weanling. His caretakers did not take care proper of him and he almost died. We nursed him back to health in hopes that he would make a racehorse but it isn't going to happen. "Gunner" is up to date on everything with no vices except the fact he will eat anything put in front of him. He is a very easy keeper with a kind attitude. Will be suitable for flat work and trail ridding only. He is a gorgeous flat kneed mover. He has some arthritis issues due to the old injury. You must be prepared to provide ongoing joint supplements to help him.

Unanimous is a son of Doneraile Court who is the son of Triple Crown winner Seattle Slew. Doneraile Court sold in the 1997 Keeneland Sales as a yearling for $1,000,000!!! His dam's sire was Conquistador Cielo who was Horse of the Year & Champion 3-year-old colt in 1982. Click to see Unanimous' pedigree and famous family.

Absotutely is a 16 hh 4 year old Thoroughbred gelding for sale.

Absultootly - SOLD! Congratulations to Amanda Lawson

16 hh 4 year old gelding. "Toot" will only be suitable for trail riding. He has a weird roughness on the top outside joint of his knee but he is sound. It should not give him problems. X-rays will be included with him. He is a pretty lazy horse. He would much rather eat then run around. He is good to ride with no bad habits. Good in his stall and good with the blacksmith. He is a very easy keeper and will get fat quickly if fed too much. He is a good mover and is very comfortable to ride. No vices and is clean legged.

Absultootly owner is the estate of the late John Davies of Cincinnati, Ohio. After the passing of his son John III in 1990, the John & Shirley Davies Foundation was established. Dedicated to helping health, education and arts organizations in the community, it also assisted individuals who could not get help anywhere else.

Absultootly

Through his love of horses, John was able to give generously and innovatively to various area charities. The horses Wellness and Lynn’s Vision ( "Bubba") donated money to the Wellness Community. Christian’s Hope ("Bobbi") benefited a young boy (now 9) who was stricken with cancer of the eye at age three.

John was personally involved with many of the charities and individuals that he helped. His passions included the Wellness Community, where the memory of his son motivated him to help other cancer participants fight for recovery.

Our Bargain Barn horse Absultootly is another of John Davie's horses that needs a home since his passing. Click here to see his pedigree. Click here to see another page of photos. SOLD! Congratulations to Amanda Lawson. Read Absultootly's Success Stories.

* FREE horses usually require a donation to a horse rescue group so that no one might profit by selling the horse to slaughter.
