I was just thinking about this. Since twins are so hard to deliver the why not instead of aborting one of the babies, take out one of the embryos and put it to another mare by embryo transfer and keep one of them in the mare that was originally bred. Has anyone ever though about that?

Embryos have to be flushed at between 6 and 8 days for ET. The earliest that a conceptus can be identified on ultrasound is 10 days, and pregnancy checks are more usually performed at 14 days or later (as they are more reliable by then). Consequently, by the time you find you have twins, you're already way past the time that ET can be done.

We actually had very successful twin embryo transplants this year. Two Flemmingh foals are expected in May, 2003

Both Flemmingh foals are now on the ground - a bay filly and a chestnut colt. Only the colt has the mother's trademark star. The filly is all bay with no markings.

We're expecting twins this March. My mare produced two separate embryos from one breeding, and even though we were planning on doing ET with the first, we had to quick find a second mare to cary the other foal. Not an ideal situation, but they're both doing well.
