Silver Twist Excels with "Problem" Mares

While his offspring continue to impress, Silver Twist now occupies a niche for mare owners: he's gained a reputation for successful pregnancies in mares that have failed to get in foal by other means (particularly frozen semen from overseas). It's counterintuitive to choose a stallion of 19 years of age for "problem" mares, yet his domestic fresh-cooled success rate is truly remarkable.

With every shipment from Stallion Services LLC, Silver Twist's stallion station, the mare owner receives a report including a computer-assisted semen analysis performed upon collection. Anecdotally, veterinarians checking the shipment on the receiving end have been quoted thus: "Wow! Looks excellent!" and "Looking at the progressively motile numbers, I'd never guess his age," and even "Looks like a disco on Saturday night!" High praise for a stallion born in 1999.

Silver Twist's offspring share the beauty and talent of Olympic medallist Abdullah with the game competitiveness, savvy, and love for jumping found in the Twist horses.

So if a Bonne Nuit line horse is on your wishlist, contact Susan E. Church at 740-501-2133 by phone or text, through Facebook, or through the Warmblood Stallions of North America website. Silver Twist will be collecting until the snow flies in 2019. It's not too late to make this breeding season a home (bred in the U.S.A.) run!
