Twin foals are not a good idea!
In horse breeding brood mares are often scanned throughout the breeding season to determine the best time to cover with a stallion, and to ensure the mare has caught in foal. After 14/18 days the vet can see if the mare has twin ovulated and the vet will pinch the smaller one allowing the other foal to grow properly.
