Didn't the owner know she was in foal...? then !

These two foals are just along the road from me,yes she did know the mare was in foal as she was covered by her own stallion although i don't think she was scanned they are absolutely beautiful it is unfortunate that the mare died as she haemorraged 9hrs after they were born but this was not due to having the twins as this can happen with just one foal the lady who owns them is doing a great job being their 'mum' they are fed every 2 hrs and growing really well she has a filly and a colt and i for one look forward to seeing them grow up:D

excellent I fancy the filly :-) Although does anyone know if being born a twin would affect the fillies fertility ?

You know how it can sometimes affect a twin heifer?
