TORNADO TWINS A CSU VET HOSPITAL SUCCESS STORY

By Bob Silbernagel

I posted something about this shortly after these twin horses were born almost three years ago, to surrogate mothers after their real mother was killed in the 2008 Windsor tornado. Doctors at the CSU Vet School's equine reproductive lab harvested eggs from the mother, named Tuesday, before she was euthanized due to a broken leg.

The Denver Post has updated their story, now that the foals are three-year-olds, and tied it to the fire that destroyed the lab last year, and efforts to raise money to rebuild it. It's an interesting story.
