My mare has been with us for 7 months so we're not familiar with her history, but we started breeding in March and got her in foal by late April. Unfortunately, there were twins at day 17, so on the advise of the vet we cut her feed in half but let her eat all the hay she wanted and checked her at day 27- both pregnancy's were absorbed. Now she is pregnant again with twins. Our gut instinct is to keep her feed the same so she doesn't stress out over food. Anyone with suggestions, we welcome them. Also, her bag is full of milk! A few days ago I thought I was seeing somithing, but it was indeed milk dripping. I share the barn with a friend and she has four mares with foals at their sides and the only thing I can think of is that she wishes she had one??

While nutritional deprivation may - note "may" - result in reduction of twins, it is typically not performed at this early stage (17 days), and is not considered to be the best nor most reliable method at that time. You are in fact fortunate that you ended with no pregnancy, as a more likely sequela at that point would have been remaining twins.

Read the article about twinning on this site to find out the more orthodox treatments and other information about twinning. If your current veterinarian only offers nutritional deprivation as the solution, you may wish to seek a second opinion from another veterinarian more experienced in reproduction.
