The twins are beautiful but the po.or mum need good care and attention…!
They are going to take a lot out of her.
Twin foals are an extremely rare occurrence. In fact, only about one in 10,000 cases!
For those mares who do get pregnant with twins only about nine percent will be carried to term. So when a 16-year-old American Paint horse called Tiki gave birth to twin foals, the arrivals attracted national attention.
This sweet older mom did everything right throughout her pregnancy which was overseen by the Mason family who ensured she had regular ultrasounds to monitor the babies.
Her adorable foals were born healthy at the Conley and Koontz Equine Hospital in Columbia City, Indiana in 2011.
Laura Mason says: The 86-pound colt was born first, healthy as — well — a horse. The filly was born about 10 minutes after, weighing in at 59 pounds. The filly, although she was the smaller of the two, turned out to be the stronger of the pair — she was up and walking around within 10 minutes of birth.
They are all beautiful. The twins took the flesh off of her, she’s pretty lean. Hope she gets plenty to eat to nurse them.
Horses are not designed to produce twin foals so for Tiki to produce healthy twin foals at 16 years old and not reject either of them is not only beautiful but extremely rare.
👍🙏🥰❤️🤗 They’re beautiful but if she’s getting older…At her age, we hope she is OK ….the foals are lovely but she will possibly need human support right now.
Now, Up her feed and vitamins so she’ll be able to safely support both foals and herself…..
She’s a wonder! Do hope she gets extra spoiling over the next few months to build her strength up again.
Give mama al lot of extra food and care!!❤
God bless them…🙏🙏🙏❤️
