But meet Mocha and Cappucino, twin male foals that defied the odds. When they were born, the twins were unable to nurse from their mother so they were provided with antibiotics and plasma. Students from the CVM Foal Team fed the foals and provided them with round-the-clock care, giving them the love that they needed until Mom could fully take over.
After a week of care, Cappuccino was healthy and full of energy, while Mocha, the smaller of the two, was being treated for an angular limb deformity. But Mocha’s outlook is very positive! “He will always be the smaller horse but with bandaging should have normal limbs” explained Dr. Trina Westerman.
