It looks like an optical illusion but this chestnut foal was born with his own perfect white shadow.

The unique marking is the profile of another horse which runs up his left shoulder and neck.

It then merges seamlessly from white to black into his mane.The pattern is such a work of art that the foal's owners have called him Da Vinci, or Vinny for short. He was born at the start of May at Fyling Hall riding school at Robin Hood's Bay, North Yorkshire.

Wendy Bulmer, who runs the riding school, said: 'I bought his mother at a sale and didn't know she was in foal [pregnant] so that was a bit of a surprise.

He's even got a little white heart shape on his bottom as well.'

    "" Special Part"

    Spirit risen (taking turn),
    are moments sweet adored.,
    that find a shift beyond discern,
    as music's special chord

    For windswept airs (are spirit bound)
    in love beyond refrain
    to gather life (and what is found)
    in earthly form to gain

    And so it goes (within each stride)
    a miracle is shown
    to be the better spirit ride
    so hearts don't walk alone

    The world is wide (with magic glow)
    that captures mood and heart
    and pushes past the world we know
    to be a special part

    He is wearing the Uffington white horse (geoglyph)- I think he has been claimed by Epona!

    I think some of those dark spots are his "man hairs" growing in. We use to wonder if the markings would stay exactly the same after all the baby hair was gone.
