This horse we are referring to is from Turkey and has been called the most beautiful horse in the world by experts.
He’s an Akhal-Teke, a breed that is a direct descendant of the extinct Turkoman horse that lived in ancient times.
There’s currently only 3,500 of these kind of horses in the world.
This particular horse, which you can see below, looks like he’s been dipped in gold.
The Akhal-Teke has an incredibly beautiful coat that gleams in the sunlight. It’s a thoroughbred and stands between 58 and 64 inches (147 and 163 cm). In China, the horse goes by the name ‘the horse from heaven’.
And this incredible creature sure looks heavenly.
The reason for its shiny shimmer lies in the structure of its fur, which is designed to act as a light intensifier and to throw back the light rays, according to the experts.
It is believed that the ‘Akhal-Teke’ is born with this golden fur in order to use it as a camouflage in the desert.
The breed is said to originate in Achal, Turkemenistan and dates back perhaps 3,000 years, making it the world’s oldest breed and the first to be domesticated.
