my mare star aborted twins again even though she was scanned in foal at 20 days and only one egg was seen vet checked both horns only one pregnancy was found in the right horn and no pregnancy in the left scan was not rushed took over half anhour as she had twins last pregnancy so vet took extra time to look and told me deffintly only one foal so i cant belive she had twins again at 220days how can i stop this happening again sorry for the spelling .

I'm so sorry that this has happened Mary Anne. We get our mares scanned at 16 days for twins and again at 18 days just in case she ovulated from another folicle two days after the first. Sometimes a pregnancy can be mistaken for a cyst or vice versa. We always track the cysts and mark them on a chart when we scan their ovaries before covering.
I guess another thing to consider is that your vet has made this mistake twice and they might not be confident at scanning or pinching twins.

Take a look at the article on this web site about twinning (follow that link), which may answer your questions somewhat. It may also be worth while looking at using a different ultrasonographer in the future - missing twins twice, especially after taking that amount of time at that stage (20 days) suggests either a lack of good equipment or ability.

she was checked for cysts and non were seen on the scan the vet cant explane how he missed the other foal she was scanned at 20days just to give us a better chance of spotting twins.
I have spoken to my vet and he says the egg must have split after the scan.and all we can do is to make sure we have her scanned at 14 days 24days then again at 49 days .

What we usually do and so far we've had plently to pinch even triplets in one mare last year but none missed. We scan before 16 days and then between two and 5 days later (18-21days) so if necessary it can be pinched before it's embedded. We then scan at 30 days for a heartbeat and again at 45 days. I guess technically the egg could have split producing two identical foals, the foals shoul be the same sex, have the same markings and whorls and share the same bag. I haven't heard of identical foals, most are non identical produced from two different fertilized eggs. It's possible in humans so maybe it is in horses too. I don't know.

Identical twins are rarely seen in the equine - rarely being 4 or 5 instances, so RARELY! There is a structure present in early embryonic development called "the capsule" that prevents the occurrences that result in identical twinning in other species.

"Never say never", but...

Ad TB - FYI the embryo doesn't "embed" at that stage (~16 days), but "fixes" - literally stops being mobile in the uterus. It is not until about day 40 that invasion of the endometrium is commenced with the early formation of the allantois.

Mary Anne, so sorry this happened again!

I'd say scan the mare at 14 days, again at 18-20, 25, and 45 because of her history.

We always scan our mares at 16 days, 25 days, and 45 days. However, we only have one (a leased mare) who has a history of twinning. Pinched a twin at 16 days successfully. The more ultrasounds you do, the more likely you are to cath something. Maybe consider switching to a different repro vet?

Mary-Anne, I know just how you feel....the exact same thing happened to me. After losing one set of twins I was so afraid of it happening again and asked my vet to take extra care to make sure there weren't twins again. She was certain there was only one but sadly 9 months later we lost another set. I don't know if they were identical, I couldn't bear to look the second time. It broke my heart and we won't be breeding again. Mare has gone off to restart her ridden career.

Mary, I am just catching up on the board and saw your post and have not visited this link much. So I want to offer a belated, "I am so sorry for your loss." That's awful!

I am learning myself, about this reproduction stuff with our dear equine friends. My mare had a twin preg. and one was "pinched off." I am having her get another U/S soon. She is, hopefully, about 60 days along (I have the exact date written down).

Anyway, I was wondering how things are going for Star? Have you rebred her? My fingers are crossed for you.

Hi Mary Anne, I've heard that usually one will absorb, so I'm hoping this will be your case. You've come so far, I would love to see you get your foal with this pregnancy. Good luck and keep us informed.

Mary Anne, Hopefully the second twin will be absorbed. If you know there is a double ovulation or in your mares case a history of twinning she should be checked at 14-16 days. At this time it's a fairly routine procedure to pinch one of the embryos as it has not fixed i.e it's still mobile. This means that the vet can move one embryo away from the other and isolate it and pinch it even if they are in the same horn or lying side by side. After 16-18 days it's not possible to manipulate the embryo an move it. Hope it goes well for you

Very very good point Ad TB, I wonder why the ultrasound wasn't done earlier, so it could be pinched off easily? Especially with having a history of twinning... hmmmm

What bad luck Mary Anne, this year we've had 4 out of 7 mares scanned at 16 days with twins. We've one mare that like Star seems to have an affinity for twins she has never not had twins when scanned at 16 days, she even had triplets last year. I hope this goes well for you especially considering the mares history and what you've been through with her

To add a litle ray of sunshine, I just wrote an article about a twin birth that happened this year....mare and foals are fine and thriving! (Rural Heritage Magazine Spring 2009 pp.51-53.)

From that article: "Twin or multiple ovulations are common in mares. By some estimates multiple ovulations are common in up to 40% of all mares. However, less than 1% of all equine twins survive. According to Dr. Reed Holyoak, staff theriogenologist at Okalahoma State University, the chances of an equine twin birth are one in ten thousand and of those births, in over 80 percent of the cases, one or both twin is lost.

If a set of equine twins does survive, they are usually multizygotic meaning that they originate from several ova, which is the result of multiple ovulations, in which case the offspring are non-identical. Monozygotic twins, those originating from a single fertilized ovum that splits to produce identical foals, are very rare. In Suzie’s case, her twins are multizygotic or not identical.

According to the Manual of Equine Practice by Reuben J. Rose and David R. Hodgson, “with the advent of diagnostic reproductive ultrasound, veterinarians have discovered that twin embryos in horses have always been fairly common prior to day 30 but seem to often correct themselves by day 45. However in some cases a mare will carry twins into advanced pregnancy. When this happens and a mare does carry twins, the uterus has a hard time supporting the twins so there is a 70% incidence of late gestational abortion. When abortion does not occur, foals are often born dead or weak and dystocia is common. Others complications of twin births include retained placenta, delayed recovery of the uterus, decreased rate of settling for the next 2 years, and potentially permanent damage to the mare’s reproductive tract. Studies show that equine twinning seems to be most common in TBs and Warmbloods.”

I wouldn't be too, too concerned right now as she can reabsorb. (And if she doesn't the end result is not always dire as evidened by the recent twin birth successfully in New York!)

Good luck!}}

I'm certainly happy she's not carrying two viable twins and it's too late to pinch! That would be horrific.....sometimes things happen for the best!

Mary Anne, I am really sending "single" preg. vibes your way. You deserve a nice, easy going, equine pregnancy! I'm with everyone else here who is eager to hear what the vet will have to say on Wed.

I am just now really learning a bit about these mares. I didn't understand the need to re-ultra sound, after a twin was pinched off, to be sure the twin or an undetected triplet, is not hanging around.

And since after about 60 days, it is very difficult, if impossible, to visualize the fetus or fetuses on ultra sound, there is no way to know if the mare with the twin that was pinched off, is carrying twins!

So much to know.

At least at over 60 days gestation, the chance of aborting, according to my vet, are minimal, unless of course, there is a twin lurking about in there.

Auggghhhh! It never seems to end. And my last comment below is meant for no one other than myself-

Ignorance Is Bliss, but not very smart.

Marianne, I try to breed in the 40's-50's, but that is with my Warmblood mares. You figure a follicle will grow around 3mm's a day (varies by mare of cours), so Friday sounds about right if she is at a 35mm right now.. thats kind of a wide range though, 30-35mm, normally vets can be more precise than that. I would say though, if she is indeed at a 35 now, then Friday would be good timing :-)

YIPPPEEE!!!!!! I'm an estatic for you Mary Anne!!!! Gives me hope as well. I'm so happy for you!!!!!!!!!!!!!! CONGRATULATIONS!!!!!!!!! Yea!!!!!!

Mary Anne, you should ultrasound in 4 days, so you can pinch one off if she has twins. Otherwise it's far more difficult to do it after the 16 days when it's attached.

This is great news Mary Anne! I'm very relieved!

Uh-O will be scanned this Sunday. I'm saying mucho prayers! If she's not pregnant, we'll most likely try one more time.
