In animal breeding, the birth of twins is a relatively uncommon occurrence. But when those twins happen to be born to a 16-year-old pony, it’s an infrequent event that captures the attention of breeders and animal lovers alike.
Any horse giving birth to twin babies is a miracle. But pause here for a second and read the narrative that follows. A 16-year-old horse was born, which may not seem like a massive deal to some of you, but trust us when we say this is a very unusual occurrence. American Paint horse Tiki, who is 16 years old, became pregnant and gave birth to twins. Everyone was startled to learn that the scan indicated she would give birth to twins.
When her labor began, she gave birth to an 86-pound stallion foal named Woodcock Pocket, and a 59-pound filly called Charming Opal ten minutes later. Despite being smaller than the stallion, the filly became more vital. Tiki was an extraordinary mother since she cared for both of her young foals, which is uncommon for mothers.
But what makes this birth even more unique is that both foals were healthy and robust, despite the odds against them. “It’s infrequent for both twins to sᴜʀᴠɪᴠᴇ,” said the vet, “so to see these two doing so well is remarkable.”
For animal lovers and breeders alike, the birth of twin foals to a 16-year-old pony is a rare and exciting event. And while the odds of such a birth happening again are slim, it reminds us of the wonder and will of animals.
