One of the most special times for a horse owner is when their mare is ready to foal. Silverwood Farm offers a safe, comfortable, clean environment for that special event.

Silverwood offers a full range of reproductive services. The staff at the farm has over 50 years of combined experience in Artificial Insemination procedures. It is a well known fact the environment of broodmares is a critical part of reproductive management. Horses have the lowest reproductive efficiency of any Species of livestock for several reasons: 1) Horses are usually selected as breeding stock based on pedigree and athletic performance versus reproductive performance, 2) The “breeding” season is limited to a time of year which partially coincides with seasonal anestrus, 3) and failure to detect estrus or failure to breed the mare within 48 hours prior to ovulation.

From the horse breeders point of view, loss of time in producing a live foal translates in dollars and economic failure. We take pride in the fact that all horses entrusted to us are watched extremely close by very experienced eyes to make this a much less expensive and more enjoyable venture to the broodmare owner. We work very closely with the provincial veterinary field services.

We are dedicated to providing a professional, flexible, customer environment, focused on helping clients achieve their breeding or training goals, or just having fun with their horses.

We are your gateway to breeding success.
