    Correct me if I'm wrong, but I thought you were only able to pinch off a twin extremely early in pregnancy, like within the first month. I could be wrong and can't look it up right now, but that is the impression I was under. I think at 90 days you would have to abort both.

    EDIT: Sorry to be repetitive. My computer is slow. What SD said.

    It's recommended to check for twining 14-16 days post breeding as after the 16 day mark you are more likely to lose both foals attempting to eliminate one (as far as I can recall).

    Personally I would never take the risk of not US to check for twins. My mare is a maiden and she was US at 14 days to check for twins and again a few weeks later to confirm still in foal. A friend bred their maiden mare to the same stallion and she was found to have twins at 14 days and one was pinched successfully. So around here at least twinning isn't that rare. Have heard of a few friends who have had to have one pinched.

    90 days into a pregnancy is too late to do anything.
    If you are only concerned about the mare being in foal leave her at the stallions place for at least another heat cycle.
    Britt, you have a lot going against you with this breeding. Your inexperience IMO is the most troubling.
    Why not pay the vet to US at 14 to 18 days when something can be done if you are going to spend the money anyway?
    Kills two birds with one stone. She is confirmed in foal and twin free. Shalom
