Illusion of Two Horses and One Head

Got this one long time ago, more precisely on February, 11th. It was submitted by Frank Berardi, J SGT MIL USA USACE. I’m not quite sure what SGT MIL and USACE mean, but probably it is something connected to military forces. If you have keen eye for details, and follow this blog regularly, you’ll notice we already had submissions from SGT Berardi. Remember his Afghan Unit logo? Check it out! I apologize for not posting this earlier, since it’s really funny-looking flick as well. Can you guess which horse is looking at you? The answer is trickier than you think! I’m still not quite sure. Frank’s email was expectedly brief and detailed: “You may have seen this, but just in case – I think it is pretty cool.” Hope you all like this one as well. I wish peaceful experience to Mr Berardi and his unit.

  1. you can clearly tell that it is 2 horses because one has a black mane and the other has the same color mane as its body

  2. 1st comment!cool it is very hard to tell.
    i saw another one like this with 2 wemon.

    yes,i know i spelled wemon wrong.

  3. Its the horse on the lefts head, you can tell by the colour of the mane,
    Also the other horses head is behind the neck of that horse.
    The only reason it is seen like this is because of the camera angle.

  4. The head belongs to the horse on the right. After looking at it for a few minutes, you can see that the hair matches up on the back of the neck. Also it looks like the harness thing belongs to the right one as well. And one last observation, I think I can see the nose of the horse on the left at the bottom of the harness, right behind the nose of the horse on the right (hope that makes a little sense). Cool illusion.

  5. The head really belongs to the horse on the right. You can tell by the color of the hair. The left horse’s head must be perfectly hidden behind the right horse.

  6. it’s the one on the right, since it fits with the colour/color of the horse’s mane. Also because the reins fit if you look at it like that.

  7. it’s easy to tell…since the head of the horse has black bangs, it’s the right horse b/c it has a black mane. :]

  8. The horse on the right is the one that is looking at you, you can see the mane is the same color as the forelock or “fringe” (for unhorsey people), whereas the horse on the left is a chestnut and does not have a black mane.

  9. I find this quite easy because I have horses. lets see if this will help you, The horse on the right is a chesnut color while the horse on the left is a bay colored horse.

    Now after you go look up what those mean, you can look at this again and immeadiatly figure it out.

  10. It is obviously the horse on the right, because the horses head has a black mane, and the horse on the right has a black mane

  11. Cool Cool Cool illusion…

    based on the colour of the mane, i’m guessing the horse on the right is looking at you…

  12. The horse on the left has a brown mane, and the horse on the right has a black mane, and the head has a black mane, so logically it’s the horse on the right that is looking at the camera.

  13. I think it’s the right one’s head, as I can see the other head behind that belongs to the horse on the left.

  14. If you know horses it is easy to see which horse you see the head on….the horse on the left is a sorrel and the horse on the right is a bay– the head is the bay’s!

  15. The one on the right side of the photo is the one looking at the camera. You can tell that it’s that one by looking at the color of the mane. One has a brown one, the other has a black one. It’s still a cool photo though.

  16. I think the head belongs to the one on the right, since it’s hair matches that of the head… :) Pretty cool! Thanks for the regular submission of illusions!

  17. the horse looking at you is the one with the matching mane the one on the left has a brown mane the one on the right has a black mane and the head has a black mane so the head belongs to the horse on the right.

  18. That’s easy! The horse on the right is looking at you. It’s a bay and has a black mane, while the horse on the left is a chestnut and has a red mane. You just have to match up the hair color. :P

  19. the one on the right, because it has a black mane like the head and the one on the left has a reddish brown mane. first comment!!!

  20. the one on the right is looking at you because it has the same colour hair as the head (black) while the other neck has lighter hair (more tan)

    meow

  21. The horse on the left has a brown mane, whilst the horse looking at you (the one of the right) has a black mane.

  22. You can tell which horse is looking at you by looking at the mane. The horse on the right has a black mane like on the top of the head.

  23. the head definitely belongs to the horse on the right because the hair is black and the horse on the right has a black mane. however, initially i thought it belonged to the horse on the left.

    Good illusion :D

  24. This one is simple for anyone who know horses. The horse one the right is a bay and the one on the left is a chestnut. This is important a bay is a brown horse with a black mane/tail/and legs. A chestnut is a reddish brown horse with the same color mane as the rest of it’s fur. The reason I say coloring is important is because the head of the horse looking at us has a black forlock (the hare coming between his/her ears to the front of its head) and since the forelock is an extension of the mane it belongs to the bay on the right.
    (not to mention you can see the tip of the horses mouth behind and just under the neck)
    Lovely picture though. I’ve got a few similar “can you tell which” horse pictures I might send in as well.

  25. Very nice illusion.

    P.S.

    “J SGT MIL USA USACE. I’m not quite sure what SGT MIL and USACE mean, but probably it is something connected to military forces.”

    SGT = Sargeant

    USACE = United States Army Corps of Engineers

    You learn something new every day :)

  26. haha wow that’s cool

    the head belongs to the one on the right. you can match the main color, and the muzzle of the one on the right can be seen behind.

    ps, if anyone posts just to say “omg! first post!” I think i might be mentally scarred.

  27. The head must belong to the horse on the right as the forelock is the same colour as the mane of that horse. The other horse is a chesnut and you can just see his forelock to the right of the horse’s head. The second horse’s head also appears just behind the first horse.

  28. The head is of the horse on the right – you can tell by the neck muscles. The horse on the left hasn’t flexed his neck muscles so his head is straight.

  29. the one on the right is looking at us. you can see a bit of the left horse’s head in between the right one’s neck and head.

  30. I love this illusion because I have horses and it is almost a perfect illusion. You can tell which body the head belongs to by looking at the color of the mane.
    The horse on the left has a chestnut mane, the bay horse on the right has a black mane.

  31. It’s obviously the horse on the right – the forelock (mane hair on the face) is real dark like the horse on the right. The horse on the left has a much lighter mane.

  32. Pretty easy…
    It head belongs to the bay (right horse). You can tell. the head is bay, and the body is bay. Bay is brown with black points (mane, tail, ears, and muzzle) just by the way. The chestnut (left, plain brown) horse is obviously just reaching behind the bay horse. Also, bay is usually darker than chestnut, so if you look carefully, you can see that the head is the same color as the bay horse.

  33. Easy! The body on the right is the horse that’s looking at you and there is another horse but it’s face is hidden behind the horse’s head and the tree. See? Pretty simple!

  34. The colour of the mane of the horse on the left is a huge giveaway. There is no way a horses’ mane can change colour from chestnut to bay
