Lucky Spinning Bee foaled. - TWINS

Born 5th March 2010

Sire - Commander Freckles

What a shock to fine that our mare had foaled early and to have live twins. Chloe as we call her foaled 3 weeks early. She was looking very big but did not know she was having twins. She did very well having both foals with no help. She has turned out to be a super mum to them both. She is feeding both foals and always has plenty of milk.

She is such a great mare. Lets us do as we please with the foals.  As it did nothing but rain for the first weeks of their lives. I made them their own little rugs to keep them dry and warm when they were let out of the stable. They also have their own little day rugs also for the non rainy days. Their coats were so fine like touching velvet.

Both foals are doing well. I will try to put updated photos of them when I can.

 

Below their first few hours.

Below photos taken on the 7 & 8 /3/2010

How they are growing. Photos taken on the 4/4/2010. All are doing really well. Mum is keeping up with the milk and the foals are growing fast. As you can see they have had plenty of grass to eat. They love to hide in the grass too.

 

Below photos taken 23/4/2010, a very misty morning.

Will have to take some more photos as they have now outgrown their little rugs.

Going really well, growing heaps as you can see.

Started to halter train.

Teaching them to lay down, they love this and go to sleep.

the twins have paddock names

Ben on the right

Bill on the left (with the socks)

Ben was the first born then Bill. (well we think)

 

 

They are very much alike, from a distance it is hard to tell which is which. But when they a close one is a bit darker in the coat and one has 2 hind socks, face markings are just slightly different. Both are still doing well and growing fine.

They are 5months old now. Will be weaning them next month. Mum has done such a great job with them.
