This chestnut foal is like two horses in one. Born at Flying Hall riding school in North Yorkshire, England, “Da Vinci” has a patch near his mane that looks like the silhouette of another horse. The horse and the unusual marking came as a surprise to owner Wendy Bulmer.
“I bought his mother at a sale and didn’t know she was…[pregnant] so that was a bit of a surprise,” she told the Daily Mail. “Chestnut horses have irregular patches but they don’t normally make something as recognizable.”
Da Vinci was so named because of his artistic marking, and he also has a white heart shape on his bottom. The seven-week-old foal is friendly and much loved by Bulmer’s children.
“I bought his mother at a sale and didn’t know she was in foal [pregnant] so that was a bit of a surprise” “It looks like an optical illusion, but this foal was born with his own perfect white shadow!”
