Twin foals born prematurely return home

Thursday, May 14th, 2009

News Story:

Twin foals born prematurely in the UK have gotten a clean bill of health and have returned home to their mother.  The odds of live twins being born to a mare are 5000 to 1 and only in 20% of all of those cases to both foals survive.  The birth of the twin foals came as a surprise to the owner of the mare.

Commentary:

Quite an amazing story, and kudos to the veterinary professionals who cared for these foals and helped them to survive.
