Horse, Pony And Dog With Identical Spots Are BFFs

Not all BFFs look the same, nor do they need to, but for these three BFFs, looking the same is the main thing they have in common. That, and their love for each other. 

An Appaloosa stallion, a Shetland pony and a Dalmatian dog are all different sizes, different species, and have different habits, but they are best buds and love hanging out together, as reported by Metro. Their mom and horse trainer, Greetje Arends-Hakvoort, "regularly catches them running, training, and having fun." Her daughter, Jolie Lune Arends, also loves the gorgeous-looking animals, and together, all five of them make the most amazing family. The mom rides the horse, the daughter is on the pony, and the dog is accompanying them everywhere. 

"Appaloosa horse Nevada, 10, Napoleon, six, and Dalmatian Jack Sparrow, two, regularly stun strangers with their unique matching spots," and we are totally not surprised. If we had seen these three hanging out together, we would probably do a double take too. 

"Napoleon was actually born at the same time as Jolie so they grew up together and now they are the best of friends," says Greetje. "People always smile when they see the three together; often people refer to the 101 Dalmatians film and it brings up nice childhood memories for them... When Jack was younger, he saw himself as one of the horses and he fits in perfectly."

She adds: "Trust is the key word here; horses thrive when trust exists and they need to feel comfortable and self assured and Jack does exactly that. 'There's a lot of horse and dog love there between them."

This Dalmatian Is The 3rd Wheel In This Family Of Horses And We're In Love (14 Images)

Meet Jack Sparrow, the feisty Dalmatian who loves his horse family; Nevada, a 9-year-old Appaloosa stallion and Napoleon, a 5-year-old Shetland pony.
In an interview with Just Something, Greetje Hakvoort, founder of the Human & Horse Hotel had this to say about their unique and adorable relationship, "When Jack Sparrow saw Napoleon for the first time as a puppy, he started to jump towards him, because he thought Napoleon was his family, and since then he always wanted to be around him. Nevada and Jack are both calm, they like to be around each other, and love to do tricks for me together, while Napoleon is really funny and definitely lives up to his name, having a strong temperament and acting like a little king".
