“BLACK TIE’S TWISTER”…(BD:3-15-99) – 15 yrs. old – 14.3 – ½) – Registered with the TWHA, SSA, and NSSA! ———–How difficult it is to find words to describe this amazing stallion and do him justice! We have had in our many years of owning horses some really well-mannered and obedient, calm stallions…..but I have to say – Twister is at the top of the list as being “The Most Amazing Stallion – EVER! —In EVERY WAY!! — -He is truly the dream horse most will never know the joy of owning! We have been Blessed to have had him a year……We bought him because early in 2013, after approximately nine years of being out of the show circuit……Tommy and Kristen decided they wanted to show again, and Tommy was at the right place, at the right time to find out about Twister.————————–Kristen and the girls love to trail ride, too,…..and he has been great to do both!!————————– He is absolutely one of the best trail horses ever! You will have to see his video (#074) of him walking down a small hill. You won’t believe the slow motion, – one step at a time……barely moving way that he goes down the hill, and he does this with every single hill he goes down. I have never seen a more cautious stepping horse than Twister! And his video will show you the reason!———He has so much head sense……he just “knows” when to be careful! He will cross creeks so slow and careful….especially on slate rock….one step at a time— Slow Motion! ————————–The only negative behavior he has,…….if you stall him for a week and especially two weeks without any handling or exercise, he is difficult to mount! This is the one and only reason he is being recommended for Experienced – Confident Riders.——-If you have a round pen, or small confined area,….turning him out daily for awhile makes all the difference. This is true for most all horses – but it really makes a difference in Twister! He is wonderful at being non-spook – from day one of arriving here – the trail rides he has been taken on……and at the 3 -4 shows he was taken to ——……on the highway —–back in the rental park with a motorcycle, 4-wheelers, and several barking dogs at the heels…..the very first time he was subjected to all of the above….absolutely no response whatsoever!—————–He was the same with the zero turn mower, weed eater, and the HUGE, very noisy trash truck that comes once a month!! Rode right up to it! And that still did not phase him!! He stood still – kept his head tucked and paid no attention!! ———–The most amazing trait is his ability to ride in a horse trailer next to our mares…….—–be stalled next to a mare and at times – a mare on both sides —–and not one time has he squealed, or shown any kind of studish behavior! This stallion is absolutely – one of a kind!!!! He is an example of how with all things – “There are exceptions to the rule!!!!”——————-—– !!!!”— He is sire to several good colts/horses in W. Va.——You can have it all with Twister! ————————- Kristen and Tommy had planned to show this year, ——but due to the pain he endures from a previous injury- he has realized that sometimes, no matter how bad you want to do something, —-you just have to let it go. In the videos and photos, you will see that Tommy has the heavier shoes on him due to them planning to show. Yesterday, Kristen had a day off —and we had a rare sunny day!! …..Twister was white as snow – so clean (another wonderful trait…he stays unbelievably CLEAN…in the photos and videos?? We did Not give him a bath and that is the truth!!) —————We got him out on the spur of the moment and did the photos and videos. We will be putting the regular keg trail shoes with drill tex on them the next time he is shod. Twister is naturally gaited…..his head set “stays consistently the same”—————-and he is VERY talented in the front end…………………-We were told that he won several Flat Shod Championships & several High Point Awards over the years in W.VA.——–and just from our experience – it is obvious he has been trail ridden all of his life due to his consistent, calm, quiet, non-spook behavior and willingness to please with going wherever you ask him to go without hesitation!!! I believe that one should always use common sense regarding children and horses…with that being said, – with his gentle, humble manner and consistent behavior —-ground and under saddle ———–”WHEN HE IS RIDDEN AND HANDLED DAILY OR ON A CONSISTENT ROUTINE – like 3x week —-”……..“he is a horse that can be trusted with family”………If you are a person that just rides once a week………and he is never out of the stall…..this would not be the case due to his energy level. He stands in the crossties fine…..he is very patient and still – but he is difficult to mount when stalled and unattended. This past year, we have had younger children here. They have petted him, groomed him,……lead him —washed and braided his beautiful tail just for fun…….He is truly a girl’s dream when it comes to that for sure!!! We realize this would not be possible if we did not have him on a routine riding and handling schedule. For one to have difficulty in the beginning of writing this description of Twister,…… trying to find the words to describe him giving him credit for the amazing, unbelievable horse that he is………….this description sure is long! ( : But I write it from my heart….and my hope is, that we can find him a forever, loving, home. A family that will appreciate him and all his gifts,……..a family that will care for him and be kind to him. Thank you for taking the time to view his videos and reading all that I have written. We do everything possible to make sure that our horses are everything we describe them to be! ——On Every horse ALL negative behaviors will be listed!———– We also obtain transport quotes upon request!—————- We take care of everything for you to make choosing your next best friend as pleasurable as possible!— And we are here for you AFTER the sale!————We specialize in finding SAFE horses for Children, Special Needs, Beginner & Mature Riders! —We also have horses for Experienced Riders! —Please see our MANY beautiful testimonials!!!!
