Rare Twin Foals Born In Elizabethtown

A horse breeder in Elizabethtown has really beaten the odds.

Danny Benningfield’s mare gave birth last Thursday to twin foals.

Benningfield’s vet said that twin foals occur about once in every 10,000 births.

And he said that healthy twin foals occur about once out of every 500,000 births.

Benningfield said his foals are healthy, and that he didn’t know that the mare was going to have twins.

All of Benningfield’s horses have names tied to the Kentucky Wildcats.

They include Blue, Coach Cal and Coach Rupp.

Benningfield said his grandkids wanted to name the twin foals after Andrew and Aaron Harrison.
