Hi Cjskip, what we usually do if we're covering them in Ireland we walk them in i.e drive to the stallion, up to 4 hours each way, cover them and bring them home on the same day. If they go to the UK, they have to travel by ferry over 24 hours. We then bring them home after 30 days. Usually we scan our mares at 16 days and again at 19 days and 30 days and 45 days. Scans are accurate at 16 days plus and I know it's also visible at 14 days. I don't know how common it is but we've had mares scaned in foal at 19 days and they've lost it by 30 days or in foal at 30 days and not at 45.
If you are considering bringing them home I'd make sure they scan at 16 for twins and make sure they're in foal before you take them home. Fingers crossed for you that both are in foal
