The unique marking in the profile of another horse runs up his left flank and
neck and merges seamlessly from white to black into his mane.
The pattern is such a work of art the foal’s owners have called him DaVinci, or Vinny for short.
He was born at the start of May at Flying Hall riding school at Robin
Hood’s Bay, North Yorks.
Wendy Bulmer, who runs the riding school, said: “I bought his mother at a sale
and didn’t know she was in foal so that was a bit of a surprise.
“I wasn’t very happy at first but he is so friendly and the kids love him.
“The chestnut horses have irregular patches but they don’t normally make
something as recognisable.
“He’s even got a little white heart shape on his bottom as well.”
It has also been noted in an official report that the owner, Wendy Bulmer is a spitting image of Jimmy Page from 1969 Led Zeppelin.
