Twin Peruvian Paso Foals!
RDS Orquidia Negra presents her twin fillies sired by RSV Escorpio de Oro!
- RSV Solimar (bay)
- RSV Soliluna (chestnut)
At 4:30 am on May the 6th 1999, our two time U.S. National Champion of Champions Performance Mare, 'RDS Orquidia Negra' lay down to once again give birth for her 5th time.
A beautiful, normal sized bay filly was born with very little effort.
The filly was pulled around to the front of Orquidia so that she could bond with her new baby. A friend
of ours that was here visiting at the time soon exclaimed 'There's another foot coming out!'
I remember thinking something like 'Yeah right.... Renee, another foot!... As if!'. But instead, I simply replied without even looking back, 'Are you sure that's a foot?'
Renee's reply of 'Shawna, I know what a foot is!' prompted me to quickly look bqck at Orquidia's vulva and sure enough there was another little hoof making it's way out!
A minute later, after a relatively easy birth process, Orquidia found herself the mother of newborn twin filly foals!
We are proud to say they have just passed their 3 month birthday and are healthy and happy in every way. We are proud to present you with some photos taken of them at just under three months of age!
