At Shareably, we are huge fans of optical illusions and visual puzzles. I don’t know about you, but I get a huge kick out of solving these tricky puzzles.

Ill be honest though, the two optical illusion puzzles presented below really stumped me. I had to stare at them for a long time before I figured out the answers. Be sure to chime in with your answers in the comment section below. I’m curious to hear how many horses you were able to find!

Artist Bev Doolittle painted a gorgeous painting titled Pintos back in 1975. Bev and her husband were traveling around the southwestern region of America when they encountered a herd of chestnut horses. Instantly, Bev was inspired and knew what she had to paint next. The way these chestnut horses stared and marveled at her and her husband left an unforgettable memory in Bev’s mind, and in Pintos, she brought what she saw to canvas.

There’s just one problem. How many horses are in the picture?

Many people are confused and stumped by the number of horses in this painting. Look below if you want the answer.

There are five horses in the painting. The first two are rather easy to identify. You can see a horse’s head on the left and a foal on the right.

The horses in the middle really trick your eye. Bev cleverly painted them so one was in front and blocking the view of the one behind it. You only know there’s a horse behind because there’s a head sticking out!

If you want another optical illusion puzzle that involves horses, then look at the painting by artistJim Warren below. It’s titled Seven Horses, but I highly doubt you can find all seven horses. It’s really difficult!

Jim painted a beautiful scene. A horse gallops into a small cave after playing along a stunning beach. The waves are crashing into the shores, and there’s a vibrant sunset in the backdrop.

But there’s only 1 real horse in the picture. Where are the others?

Four of the seven are more obvious than the others.

The next three are the challenging part.

The fifth horse is more an outline of a horse. It’s in the top right of the picture. Do you see it?

The sixth one is even more concealed. You can find it easily if you flip the picture upside down…

The very last one is a head-stumper. It’s the hardest one to find. That’s because the horse isn’t even in the frame anymore… it already left!

The seventh horse left a few footprints. How many horses did you find on the first try? Let us know in the comments below.

Please SHARE these two puzzles with you friends and see how many they can find!
