What are the chances of a mare having twins when she produced only one folicle? She was palpated every other day through out her heat cycle until she ovulated. Just wondering since you said the egg very rarely splits. Thanks

Very rare. There have been about half-a-dozen genetically proven identical twins...

I have a mare diagnosed with twins but too late by about a week to pinch off,she was scanned the first time in Feb.and again 3 weeks later. My question is the mare is getting an udder and has dripped milk when touched. Is this normal so early in her pregnancy or is it possibly caused by the mare naturally getting rid of one fetus? I have a friend whose mare is due to foal and both mares run together, her mare is having an out of season foal. Can you tell me why my mare has an udder and milk. thanks Ruth Western Australia...

Inappropriate lactation (mares producing milk <10 months of pregnancy) is often a precursor to abortion. Have your mare checked by a veterinarian.

Hi Samantha and Josh, my mare was bred on the 20th oct. and according to my notes was still taking the stallion on the 31 oct. She is booked in for a scan tomorrow 12 march. I will let you know the results when I get them, thanks for replying so promptly. Regards Ruth

At 5 months, production of milk is likely an indicator of problems. If you can get your vet out today, it might be better... If however the impending pregnancy loss is due to twins, then there isn't much that can be done at this point. :-(

Hi Josh ,Samantha, I had my mare scanned today and according to the vet there is only one foal and every thing looks normal. Placenta shows no sign of separating , the mare did show signs of lactating but it was watery and was the only sign of milk/water? in two days. I feel confident she will have a normal pregnancy. Hopefully a healthy foal in September. Cheers Ruth...
