Horse Gives Birth To Very Rare Filly But Make Sure You Pay Attention To Her Face Pattern

The most common patterns you see in horses are a stripe and a star. One extremely rare pattern is called the medicine hat.

According to Equiworld, the horses with this marking pattern are mostly white but have color on their head and ears that make it look like they have a hat or bonnet on. The colored patch on their chest is called a shield.
