There is no horsing around when it comes to working out the markings on the newest addition to the equine family at Fyling Hall School at Robin Hood’s Bay.
DaVinci, known as Vinny, was born at the end of May with a striking white patch above his front legs and mane much to the surprise of Wendy Bulmer who runs the riding school.
She said: “I bought his mother at a sale and didn’t know she was in foal so that was a bit of a surprise. and 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 and he has a little white heart shape on his bottom as well.”
