Sabino with symmetrical markings

last week i rescued a Sabino colt, 10 months old. on closer inspection today he is totally symmetrical. he is absolutely covered in chestnut flecks and i've even had the tape measure out, he is perfectly symmetrical even his whirls are in exactly the same place on each side. he even has 7 black eyelashes on the outside of each eye and the rest are white. i've never seen anything like this before. Any one else heard of it?? he is a hackney trotting horse x dutch warmblood. I'm amazed its totally exact.

Because I have never seen any horse that is perfectly symmetrical on both sides with the exact same number of markings, hairs, etc.

You want the truth? You can't HANDLE the truth!

You are never better than anyone. Every rider has skills they need to improve. The only one you must compare yourself with, is you.
