The year 2004 was the beginning of Twisted Oaks Farm and the start of a wonderful journey for us. Our experience with horses first started in the 1960's when Janice was just a young girl and her unending and untiring fascination with horses blossomed with the Margaret Henry books and followed through to the Walter Farley series of the "Black Stallion". From Janice's first mare by the name of Connie, and throughout the years when she and the family business of Odyssey Arabians once based in Birnamwood, WI, we have always been firm in our belief's. Conformation first and foremost. Form to Function, and Temperament. The three most important things in any breed of horse. Without those, there is no horse, be it the color or curls matters not. From National Champion Arabian horses in the 1970's and 1980's, to the years that followed into the 90's with Mishek Arabians, our involvement in horses has never ceased. It was then, in 2001, that our own direction changed, wanting to try something new, we came across this rare breed of horse, the American Bashkir Curly. It was at the Minnesota Horse Expo, that we were first introduced to this VERY versatile and sensible breed of horse. From there, after a year of looking for the right horse, Hawk's Midnite Shadow was brought to Twisted Oaks Farm. He, and two other mares, both maternal sisters found their new and last home.
With Janice and two of four, horse crazy daughters, Naomi and Macy, we strive to put only the best foals on the ground with a superb stallion and equally wonderful mares. With a combined 70+ years in experience with horses, countless show's and honor's we hope to bring a smile to anyone's face that inquires on this wonderful breed of Hypoallergenic horses!
Our show records include National Honor's and Championships in the Arabian horse arena.
County Championships and State top Ten's in 4-H State Show's.
National top Honor's in Horse Judging at the Quarter Horse Congress and the Arabian National Championship!
