There is one breed of horse that seems to really shine bright. It’s a very rare breed from Turkmenistan and it is called “Akhal-Teke”. They are known for their coats which are so beautiful that it truly is like nothing you’ve ever seen before.

As mentioned, all horses are beautiful. So it’s pretty amazing when one type of horse is able to stand out above the rest. The “Akhal-Teke” have shining blond coats which many compare to a bright metallic-like color.

They are actually known as “horses from heaven” in China. Indeed they are rare with only an estimated 1,250 in existence! The structural properties of their hair gives them their unique looking coat.

Apparently the proteins in their hair are arranged in a manner, so that when the light hits it, a reflection and refraction of the light occurs, similar to what happens when light hits metal. Pretty cool genetics!
