THERE must be something in the water at Easton Farm Park after the arrival of two sets of twin calves over the weekend.

One set are a Red Poll cross who are feeding on the river marshes with their mother.

The others, a boy and girl, are pure-breed Simmental, and are being hand-reared by staff at the farm after their mother couldn't feed them naturally.

After an initial wobble when they were learning how to drink from the bottle, they are now strong and cheeky and enjoying their new home.

Twin calves are something of a rarity. On average less than five per cent of cows give birth to twins.
