The unique pattern in his hair looks like another horse, riding up his mane from his left shoulder.
Born in May at Fyling Hall riding school at Robin Hood's Bay, North Yorkshire, the horse's owners named him Da Vinci, calling the odd marking a "work of art."
Da Vinci was a surprise to Wendy Bulmer, who runs the riding school.
"I bought his mother at a sale and didn't know she was in foal [pregnant] so that was a bit of a surprise," Bulmer said. "I wasn't very happy at first, but he is so friendly and the kids love him."
Da Vinci also reportedly has a white heart shape on his bottom, too.
