Silver Twist

We have a new Stallion Story! Come and read the story of Silver Twist, an Anglo-Trakehner stallion with a remarkable pedigree and a remarkable life.

Stallion Stories are the "back stories" of the stallions - behind the competition success and ribbons. What is that stallion's story, and what is he really like?

Foundation Fridays
Recent Foundation Sires Featured on WarmbloodStallionsNA.com
We started a new feature on WarmbloodStallionsNA.com in 2018: Foundation Fridays! Every other Friday we will be featuring a foundation sire - one who has been influential in the development of warmblood breeds. Since our last email newsletter, we have added two new stallions. With most of these articles, we'll be pulling from the incredible archive of The Horse Magazine , published by Chris Hector of Australia. Thank you, Chris, for permission to draw on your expertise!

In each of these articles, we introduce a Foundation Sire, and we also include links to stallions with each of these bloodlines who are on WarmbloodStallionsNA.com .

World Young Horse Championships 2018
The World Young Horse Championships were held August 3–5 in Ermelo, The Netherlands. Classes were held for horses 5, 6, and 7. It was an impressive showing. Special congratulations to Glamourdale, who won the 7-Year-Old final!

Do Mares With Competition Records Make Better Broodmares?
Chris Hector, of The Horse Magazine.com, asked that question of two European breeders with differing views. Another question came up, which is whether the age of the mare has an effect on the quality of the offspring.

Tips for Less Stressful Weaning for Foals
It’s weaning time - some 2018 foals have been weaned already and some are about to be. Weaning is one of the most stressful times in a horse's life, which can mean gastric ulcers. Kentucky Equine Research has some management tips to reduce the stress level for the foal. It should help reduce the stress on the breeder too!
