I'm wondering this as well... ?

Either way, I'm sorry for your loss.

So sorry for your loss. I am very glad that your mare made it thorough that alright. Poor girl.

So so sorry to hear that, I know I would be heart broken too--you look forward to it for such a long time and then for something to go wrong--again-I am so sorry.

It depends on the type of twins. If she had fraternal twins, then yes, she has a higher chance of producing twins again. If they were identical twins, then she has the same chance as any other mare to have twins, regardless of having had them before.

Mods, grant me the serenity to see the opinions I cannot change, courage to change the ones that should change, and the wisdom to spot the trolls.

If you want a stable friendship, get a horse.

I'm kind of confused... so she was carrying twins, and neither made it? One was born normal and passed later, and the other was just a fetus?

I am so sorry for your loss, it is devastating to lose a foal.

Twins in horses are always fraternal, but yes she would be at risk of twinning again. The reason that twins don't work in mares in because of the type of placenta horses have. The entire placenta attaches to the uterine wall (except at the cervix) so when there are two babies in there neither placenta gets to attach properly so both babies are oxygen deprived and both have partial placental detachment.
