Dun - they may have been two embryos frozen in the same straw, accidentally.
My coming yearlings are identical. They were 2# difference at birth (our scale is 2# increments). They weighed exactly the same when we got weaning weights, and we weighed them yesterday to give them vaccinations - they both weighed 860#. One is going to a new home tomorrow to a 4-H'er. That's kinda like getting paid for one and KEEPING her also!!!
But --- I STILL HATE TWINS. They are trying to "grow" on me ---- but NO.

They were claimed to be split embryo twins. That was their big deal back then.

I'll have to look back through some of my old semen catalogs.
