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. Native Americans believed that the horses with that pattern had magical powers that protected them during battle.
The filly you see in these pictures is called Coconut – and she has the medicine hat pattern. In the video below, Coconut is only two days old, and she is learning about being a horse from her momma, Poka.
