Foaling season at Warm Springs Ranch in Cooper County is over, and there are 28 new members of the Budweiser Clydesdale family to show for it.
Two colts - Danny and Arnold - were the last two babies born at the ranch this year. Supervisor John Soto says the two are "almost twins" - they share a father and were born within minutes of each other, inspiring Soto to name the foals after the 1988 movie "Twins."

The expansion announced Monday will add about 100,000 square feet to the Arnold facility. It's expected to be complete in 2013.
