According to the experts, the probability of twin foals being born alive is one in 10,000. So when this mare featured in the video below got pregnant with twin foals in 2014, the students at the College of Veterinary Medicine at Oregon State University had a rare opportunity that they might never get to see in their life. Dr. Josh Schipf, who has been involved in this field of work for 30 years, says that it is only the second set of live twins he has ever seen in his entire career.
These lucky twin foals were named Mocha and Cappuccino. Mocha, the smaller of the two, had angular limb deformity and according to Dr. Trina Westerman, he will always be the smaller horse but he can have normal limbs with the help of bandaging. Cappuccino on the other had is perfectly healthy. However, as their mother was weak to take care of them and nurture them, the students had to care for them 24/7.
