Horses are beautiful creatures that have stood by humans since the dawn of time, and indeed, it would be hard to envision civilization without their contributions. So, it is no surprise that we care so deeply for these majestic creatures. Here is a remarkable video of a pregnant horse giving birth to not one, but two foals, and if this does not make your heart happy, check your pulse.
Daisy the horse was seven days overdue in giving birth to her foal, don Quixote. But when she finally went into labor, her owners were on hand to witness the miracle. However, just a few minutes later, they were pleasantly surprised when Daisy gave birth to a second baby horse, named Duet.
Mama and her two babies are perfectly healthy after the surprise pregnancy.

“That was lovely. The mare must have really trusted the guy to let him touch her tiny foal like that. Shows what a trusting mare she is and what a good relationship she must have at the stables to know that they are there to help.”- Debbie Peter
“My stable has twins to! They are both paints and have separation anxiety. You only need to put one on a lead line and the other will follow and they will not leave each other’s side unless there’s food but they still won’t leave unless you bring it closer so it can be with the other.”- Anon.
“Aww babies. Beautiful mama; she’s so calm! It’s a marvel to me that animal babies can stand at all, right away. After being all tucked in like a ball in their mama’s womb, they’re rudely ejected out in this weird environment, and boom they stand up. When they’re all legs, like foals are too! How the heck long does it take a human baby, a year?”- Anon.
