I just saw this and had to post it. I know nothing more than this article says. How great! Fraternal twins! So very rare.
Here is the post:
Horse and Hound Mobile Veterinary Services
TWINS! Conceiving twins is extremely rare in horses, about a 1 in 10,000 chance, and twins that survive birth are rarer still. Most often, one or both die in the womb or at birth because horses aren’t designed to nourish two fetuses and produce two viable foals. A doubly strained labor often kills the mother, as well. This mare beat the odds, she’s the one in ten thousand and her healthy foals are as close to a miracle as you can get. #horseandhoundMVS #MobileVeterinarian #twinfoals #medicalmiracle
JANUARY BUCKET FUND: BUDDY.
WE ARE ONLY $60 AWAY FROM OUR GOAL TO HELP BUDDY!!
Can we help those who are helping Buddy? He is 28, incredibly well mannered and kind, who was dumped at an auction because he could no longer keep good weight.
Shame on those owners. If you cannot feed your elder horse, please get help before he is in this condition – thrown away at an auction where younger horses will brutalize him.
Let’s help No Nonsense Natural Horsemanship Rescue help Buddy.
