Twin Horses Born in Manton

Posted: Updated:

A double bundle of joy was born in Manton in Wexford County over the weekend.

A Paint mare gave birth to a set of twins.

Horse owner Cheryl Brandt says a mare giving birth to twins is very rare. According to Brandt, somewhere between one in 10,000 and one in 15,000 mares have twins. In many cases, one or both of the twins won't survive and sometimes the mother mare won't either.

The mare and both twins named Luke and Ziva are doing fine.
