I have a six year old Paint mare that was in foal for 8 months. I had her ultrasounded at 30 days and everything was fine. She was ultrasounded again and found to be carrying twins. Three days ago she aborted one of her foals with no signs whatsoever.

First, I was wondering if there is any way that she could possibly still be carrying a second foal or if she would have aborted both foals.

Secondly, I was wondering if she is still going to produce milk or if it will go away on its own if both foals have been aborted.

Although it would be unusual for a single twin to be aborted and the second remain to term, it has happened. It would be best to have your veterinarian confirm the remaining pregnancy status of the mare.

Milk is typically produced around the time of abortion/parturition. If the foal is not present to nurse, the milk production will generally cease over the course of the next week to month. With some mares however it may persist.

Kathryn,

Any news on your mare? I hope for you that one of the twins survived.

I had an ultrasound done on my mare and there was not a twin. No one has any idea what happened to it, which is very strange. I also had a culture done on her to see if an infection caused the abortion.

I had a mare not quite as far a long as yours was. she was carrying twins and had a very bad fall 3 days later she aborted 1 foal. I didn't know she was carring twins so I went back to using her once she recovered. A few months went by and I thought darn she's getting round. 2wks later she had a perfect filly. just an expierence i had.
