Meet the rare twin foals!

Twin foals with their mother Love Me Do

The owner of a farm in Hampshire is celebrating the arrival of rare twin foals!

Their mum, a 17-year-old mare called Love Me Do, surprised everyone with the birth of the twins.

It is really unusual for a horse to have two healthy foals at once. The chances are about one in 10,000, according to the British Horse Society.

Their dad is a showjumping stallion called Cavy's Boy, but the foals haven't been given names yet.
