Why the Long Face? You Had Twins! (Sunny and Angel's first media release)

“Sunny” and, “Angel” may look like normal foals, but these babies and their mother, a 9-year-old mare named, “Lena”, overcame unbelievable odds!

Lena is a 9-year-old, maiden, registered Quarter Horse. Her owner didn’t know Lena was expecting twins until they were being born on Sunday, March 28. 2010. The colt has been named, “Sunny” and a filly is called, “Angel.”

Twin birth for horses is so rare that it’s hard to find accurate statistics. It is believed that the chance of a mare and both foals surviving birth is around 1 in 10,000. Sunny and Angel are doing well, but in most cases there is a 1 in 15,000 chance of twin foals surviving the first two weeks.

Sunny and Angel are Quarter Horse – Arabian mix. Both foals went full-term, which gives them a better chance of survival. They are being monitored round-the-clock and, as of now, all signs are good.

Sunny and Angel's arabian sire is Alada Baskin I. For more information, go to
