10 horses with unique markings you’ve never seen before


If you’ve ever interacted with one of these majestic creatures, you would know that they are strong, beautiful, but timid creatures. It’s not surprising that so many people love to own and breed horses.
Did you know that all horse colors are actually built on one of only two base colors? All coats are built on black or chestnut with various genes acting on these colors to dilute them, resulting in a broad range of markings. Here is a list of 10 horses that have unique and beautiful coats.

1. Da Vinci

This may be the only horse out there with a white shadow! The pattern is so unique that his owners named him Da Vinci.
2. The Golden Statue

This Golden Akhal Teke is dubbed «the world’s most beautiful horse.» If unicorns existed, I truly hope it looks like this.
3. The Dalmatian

Our spotted friend here is a Friesian/Appaloosa Crossbreed, sometimes called the Leopard Appaloosa. Watchout, Cruella De Vil just might come for this one next.
4. The Spotted Pair

This beautiful Knabstrupper comes with a matching dog (sold separately). The warm brown spots go nicely with its cream coat. These two even have matching red reins/collars!
5. The Rugged Cowboy

If there ever was an appreciation for the weathered, unpolished, seasoned look, this horse would take the cake. This beautiful blue roan looks like it has battled it out with nature and lived to tell the tale.
6. The Silver Fox

This beautiful silver buckskin Akhal-Teke is a rare color, so rare that people claim it’s photoshopped.
7. Fabio

There has never been a horse more fitting for a cheesy romance novel cover. This Icelandic horse has a thick double coat developed for extra insulation in cold temperatures.
8. The Snowflake

A snowflake pattern on this dapple grey pinto horse is breathtaking. The best description for this house is a «pinto mottle galaxy marble», though not a technical coloration term.
9. Zorro

This horse’s unique facial pattern makes him look like he is ready for a masquerade.
10. The Jabbawockee

Though not an official member of the dance crew, Jabbawockeez, this horse certainly has the look to join the crew. His beautiful chestnut coat contrasts nicely with the pure with on his face, legs, and tail.
