The horses of the Akhal-teke breed are famous for the golden shimmer of their coat. They are thoroughbreds (like English thoroughbreds and Arabians) and originate from Turkmenistan. The breed is thought to be over 2000 years old and is one of the very earlier horse breeds known.

    I love this horse. I’ve been fascinated with Akhel Tekes since I the first time I heard of them and their history. I wish there were more of them in the US. Not only is this the most beautiful animal but this is an exceptional photo!!
