The Akhal-Teke is a horse breed first found in Turkmenistan. Their main feature is the distinct coat that gleams and this is also what distinguishes them from the other horse breeds.

If I wasn't a total City-lover, I'd have one of these horses. <3 Akhal-Teke is such a cool breed!

The Akhal-Teke's most notable and defining characteristic is the natural metallic bloom of its coat. This is especially seen in the palominos and buckskins, as well as the lighter bays, although some horses "shimmer" more than others.They have a rather slim body and ribcage (like an equine version of the greyhound), with a deep chest. The conformation is typical of horses bred for endurance over distance. The Akhal-Tekes are lively and alert, with a reputation for bonding to only one perso

Akhal Teke - I can really see the resemblance to the greyhound here. Beautiful horse, wish photo included legs and feet.

A silver-colored Akhal Teke. I cannot actually say what color this is. Probably a gray with a lovely phase of getting white. I would like to know the name of the horse, if I could find some info about its pedigree or something.

Akhal-Teke... makes me think of what the horses in the book The Scorpio Races would look like
