A Georgia family experienced a rare event when their horse, Tilly, unexpectedly gave birth to twin foals. Despite numerous Veterinary checks, the twins were not detected during Tilly’s pregnancy. Twin births in horses are extremely uncommon, with only 9% of mares carrying twins to term, and only 14.5% of those cases resulting in both foals surviving delivery.

Tilly’s twins have defied these odds but require extensive care, including splints and supportive treatment. The University of Georgia Veterinary Teaching Hospital is overseeing their care.

The family is hopeful and grateful for any assistance to help the twins continue to thrive.
