God’s creature never ceases to amaze us with the extraordinary wealth of beauty. The Akhal Teke horse, considered the most beautiful in the world, is no exception.
These beautiful creatures are native to Turkmenistan in Asia and are best known for their shiny metallic fur.
Their shiny fur, which can reflect and refract light like metal, is due to their genetic makeup.
The sheen of the fur is due to the hollow hairs that form a prism through which light can pass.
The Akhal Teke horse can come in many different colors, but the reflection of light is more spectacular in lighter colored horses.
This breed is surprisingly athletic, which means it is well suited for sports that require great endurance and long rides.
Since there are only 6,000 of these magnificent horses in the world, it is not for nothing that the Chinese call them the ,,horses of heaven”.
In Turkmenistan, their country of origin, they are so popular that horse export is punishable by death.
