    Its amazing they can detect them THAT early. A mere 2 Weeks?

    Good to know for future reference.

    Many times they can't. Emma's was missed when checked in that time frame. I insisted she was pregnant. Vet came back at 21 days.. and guess what? She sure was..

    Yes they can, more so if you have a reproduction vet who knows what they are doing...

    There are too many vets out and about that have very minimal training. Any good vet can and will see a pregnancy at 2 weeks.

    Sorry for your loss OP. Twins are always a risk and sometimes not even detectable with even the best vets. A well known breeder in the area had a mare checked and no twins, yet at birth a second one was discovered. Only the first one born made it. The second was too small and undeveloped. The positioning of one behind the other apparently made it difficult to detect. She had a top repro vet. I do as well- one who works with the Rohara mares and others on the breeding circuit, but sometimes they miss things- just like human doctors. I have them checked twice, especially if they come up "open."
    Glad the mare is ok.

    On the ultrasound topic. You should ultrasound at 14/15 days. If twins are detected, 90% of the time, the mare will reabsorb one of them by day 30, which is why my instructor tells us to ultrasound again at day 30. If there are still twins then it's the time to act about it.

    Horses do not "reabsorb" a fetus. It is aborted.
