Horses are one of the most graceful animals.
They are so majestic and fast. Now we will show you something that you have never seen in your life!
This horse is considered the most beautiful in the world.
Akhal Teke is the breed of this handsome horse.
It was bred on the territory of modern Turkmenistan presumably 5000 years ago. There are currently only 3,500 of these horses worldwide.
The Akhal Teke has an unusual color. It looks like it has been dipped in gold paint.
In China, this animal is called “the horse that descended from heaven.”
Indeed, this is the most incredible color!
According to experts, the reason for this flickering is associated with the special structure of wool, which reflects the sun’s rays.
As for height, they are quite large. On average, about 160 cm for stallions.
Also, there is an opinion that in ancient times Akhal-Teke with golden wool was used as a disguise in the desert.
You may think that a horse of this breed looks rather fragile. However, this appearance hides incredible endurance.
Moreover, the Akhal-Teke horse can tolerate temperatures in a wide range – from -30 to +50 ° C.
In 2012, Gurbanguly Berdimuhamedov, the President of Turkmenistan, signed a decree on holding the annual International Akhal-Teke Horse Beauty Contest in April.
This event is dedicated to the Day of the Turkmen Horse.
