You may be used to seeing twins in the human world, but you rarely see twins in the horse world. Twin cubs are very rare. In fact, 3 in 100 are twins compared to only 1 in 10,000.
Only about 9% of mares who are pregnant with twins reach full term. So when 16-year-old American paintball horse Tiki gave birth to twins, their appearance drew national attention. This adorable elderly mom did everything she could during her pregnancy and the Mason family made sure she had regular ultrasounds to monitor her baby.
Her adorable puppy was born healthy in 2011 at Conley and Koontz Equestrian Hospital in Colombia, Indiana. According to the Huntington County tab, “The 86-pound foal was born as healthy as a horse five minutes before midnight. The mare was born about ten minutes after midnight and weighed 59 pounds. Although she was the smaller of the two, the mare was born in her pair. Stronger: She got up and started walking 10 minutes after she was born. – says Laura Mason. Its owner kept a close eye on Tiki as twin mares often leave one or both of their cubs, but Tiki did not reject Woodcock and the Charming Opal. She turned out to be a loving and attentive mother.
