Mother Nature is as creative as she is mysterious. We all 6 billion of us have unique features and birth marks are no exception. Animals have birth marks too and theirs can sometimes be their largest identifier. If you look at markings on your cat or dog, the skin under their fur is usually the same color as the fur on top. This horse is no exception but the exact shape of his markings are the real ‘kicker’ in this story.
North Yorkshire, England, Fyling Hall Riding School is a wonderful place full to the brim with equestrian awesomeness. All these horses are special in their own way but one horse, in particular, definitely stands out from the crowd. His name is Da Vinci and he is something else.
This giant white marking Vinni is sporting, coincidentally, looks like a horse. This marking stems from flank to neck and even has its own mane.
Wendy Bulmer purchased Vinni’s mother at a horse sale one year ago. Within a couple of weeks, the mare began to show signs of pregnancy. Initially, Bulmer was unamused with this new addition to her farm as a new foal comes with many unexpected expenses. She changed her mind when the little one was born.
This happy chap is now an internet celebrity and gets a lot of welcome attention. He loves to play with kids and enjoys a beautiful farm fit for a masterpiece.
