A Shire mare recently birthed twin foals in Llandysul, Ceredigion Wales. Twinning is rare in horses. It most often results in the death of one or both twins. But happily that was not the case for show horse mom Penlan Ceri Rose.
The owners of Penlan Ceri Rose had no idea she was carrying twins as her ultrasound indicated she was carrying just one foal. It is generally recommended to terminate one foal in horses that do ultrasound positive for twins because the risk of carrying two foals to term is so dangerous.
