The horses of the Akhal-teke breed 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 earliest horse breeds known.
What a beautiful tail! Whatever the owners are doing to groom the tail is obviously succeeding. But one of our 55 inch tail wraps would work too I bet. They are made for horses with longer, thicker tails.
