As far as i can tell with the twilight colourings is one was for usa and one was for europe but not sure how guarenteed that is.
i have racked my brains for hours trying to remember the names of the horses that come with swan but i fear my memory is playing up as every horse name i look at i think hmm maybe that was it. i will remember or find the info dont worry lol

After doing some more research I now know why 100% their are two twilights. One was an original classic horse (purple white tail) whilst the other was a fashion parade horse (black body)
think its really odd that their is a name repeat in the series though very very weird!
cant find anything else at all - as you all know info on these horses is very few and far between on the internet so if anyone else knows as to why the same name was used for two different sets please let me know.
Oh and I also think thats why maybe Dancer from fashion parade was never confirmed maybe the black twilight was suppose to be called dancer? dunno speculating now! lol xxx

Yeah, I saw that the package said Fashion Parade... but I wonder if that might have just been a boxing mistake?   The odd black Twilight doesn't fit in with the Fashion Parade horses at all.   Technically, he doesn't really fit any of the sets that were released.   Not completely, anyway.

In fact, it's possible that the black horse's name isn't even Twilight... maybe they didn't have a name for him, and they just grabbed an extra Twilight base or something?   

Ooh, maybe he was a prototype of a horse, and he somehow accidentally got packaged?!
Hmmm... perhaps we will never really know! 

Whoever he is, and however many of him there are... I want one!  He is gorgeous. :)

i thought about that, maybe he wasnt boxed but the seller put him in a box she had from another horse and thought that was his name - i have seen name mistakes for them on ebay quite often lately so that wouldnt suprise me and your 100% right he may be wrong, he may be a completely different horse that goes by another name but i want him!!! lopl xxx

Oh aww.  I stumbled on it by accident, and not knowing anything about the line, thought it looked complete.  :)

OK, looking at all the horses I have mixed up the name plates so I am not sure which is which for some of them.
I'll have to take a group shot and then whoever knows can work out which is Morning Glow and which is Moonlight from that!
