My mare is not having twins--well I sure hope not--as big as she is I thinks he is having triplets but anyway I was just wondering when a mare does have twins how does she foal---does one just come out after the other? Do they both come out head first?? If they are identical are they in the same sac? Does anyone know--has anyone on this site had twins that have survived???
Thanks

Dorothy- there were a pair that I posted previously born in TX this spring that both survived but that was some time ago I posted it so it would take some searching in order to find the link to the photos. Can't help you with how they are delivered though, we've never had a set born that I know of.. Your mare is just going to have one GOOD sized baby..:-) and a whole lot of amniotic fluid I'd bet.. better wear waders when that water breaks! can't wait to see photos.

Dorothy, I read about twin pregnancy on this site-not positive where. But from all the people, as far as I recall, said twins very rarely survive and that normally, at least one, but often both, die. They recommended "pinching" off one of the twins (by a vet of course).

I would love to see a twin set though. I never have.
