Sometimes there are cases that we think never would happen, but nevertheless, it happens. So in our reality it is called a miracle. This story happened in the English county of Devonshire.
A woman, named Tania has been breeding horses for a long time, but she had to face a truly unique phenomenon. There is an unusual mare named Destiny in Tanya’s stable. An unusual and incredible story happened to the horse a year and a half ago.
When Tania Mackee’s horse gave birth to healthy identical twins she could not believe her luck. Unlike their predecessors, the new twins – a filly and a colt – are not identical but they are still incredibly rare.
Basedon experts’ estimation, the chances of identical cubs to be born as 10000 to 1! At the same time, the horse was previously examined by a veterinarian, who did not find twins in her womb. According to experts the anatomy of a horse simply does not provide for the possibility of bearing and giving birth to more than 1 foal.
The mare became a mother of beautiful foals, but Tania understood how difficult it was for her to bear, give birth and feed babies. Therefore, the breeder decided to give Fate a little rest, after which she again decided to get a new offspring.
For these purposes, McKee used an Irish sports horse with an excellent pedigree. The stallion was a participant in the Olympic Games in Sydney in 2000. From the union with such a noble horse, a very special foal was to be born.
That’s exactly what the experienced breeder thought. As soon as Destiny got pregnant, she was sent to the vet. The doctor found nothing unusual, the fetus was developing normally. The horse was gaining more and more weight, at the end of the term her belly was just huge.
Tania was waiting for the birth to help her pet if necessary. But Fate was able to surprise her mistress this time too! It’s impossible to believe, but Fate… she gave birth to twins again!
It turns out that a 19-year-old mare gave birth to two pairs of twins in 18 months! Such cases are truly unique, because the chance of successfully carrying twins twice is simply minimal. The mare named Destiny has thrown a real challenge to the theory of relativity!
Now the foals have grown up, they are running around the farm at full speed, mom does not leave the kids a step. The breeder can’t get enough of the offspring.
Tania mentions that no such cases have been known so far. The birth of twins in mares is an amazing rarity, but the repetition of such a story is simply exception.
Fate knows nothing about her exclusivity, she was able to successfully bear and give birth to healthy twins twice, completely unaware of how unusual her story is considered by people.
And now the first pair of twins have already grown up, they are perfectly healthy. The second twin also feels good, while the mother has enough milk for two babies. As Tania says, foals grow strong, brave and healthy. And they are also as snow-white as their dad.
