similar story in the NYTimes had this illustration:
A modern horse with leopard spots like those seen in France's Pech-Merle cave. Comparing DNA from the present and the Stone Age convinced scientists that those spotted depictions were based on existing animals. [Thomas Hackmann]

I never saw a horse that looked like that. Interesting. Thanks for posting.
Now that is a horse of a different color!

Looks like the perfect coat for a snowy terrain dotted with rocks and snow-draped evergreens. Until it warmed up that is.

Thanks, Civ The cave paintings at Lascaux , in the Dordogne region of France are magnificent. The design, slavish relationships, color, and realistic quality make them seem bright and alive 17,300 years later.
