As every single mother in the world describes, one of the most difficult and yet beautiful moments for a mother is the pregnancy and then the day when the child is born. It is absolutely incredible,nothing seems more powerful than this moment, especially because a new generation in the family is born. However, before getting pregnant, there are a lot of things that need to be taken into consideration and most importantly the age when a woman should get pregnant.
While the chances of having fraternal twins in humans are about 32 in 1,000, for horses this possibility is almost non-existent. Only 1 in 10,000 horse pregnancies result in twins, but one lucky American Paint Horse recently defied the odds and had two of her own ! 16-year-old Tiki gave birth to Woodcock Pocket and Charming Opal, a set of twin foals rarely seen by any horse owner across the world.
This makes her a little old to be a mom. This sweet older mom did everything right throughout her pregnancy which was overseen by the Mason family who ensured she had regular ultrasounds to monitor the babies. Tiki is owned and taken care of by the loving Mason family, who first discovered the twins on an early ultrasound of their prized horse.
While complications can often arise with multiples of large creatures such as this, her two foals were born as happy and healthy as can be. I am so happy that Tiki managed to have a successful pregnancy despite all the problems that were expected in a situation like this.
