Conley and Koontz Equine Hospital

Twin foals arrive, on different days

Twin foals were born at Conley and Koontz Equine Hospital south of Columbia City this past weekend.

The mare and foals are all doing well, the hospital said in a written statement.

It is rare for horses to successfully give birth to twin foals, it said, statistics indicating that this only occurs with 1 in 10,000 equine pregnancies

The equine hospital said the births straddled the midnight hour, with the colt born at 12:56 p.m. Saturday and the filly coming just a short time later – but with a Sunday birth date.

The owners are Eric and Laura Mason of Huntington.
