The Akhal-Teke is a horse breed from Turkmenistan. Only about are left worldwide. Known for their speed and famous for the natural metallic shimmer of their coats. The most beautiful horse I've ever seen!
Victorian women were fascinated with horses. The horse represented all that they were and wanted to be; repressed desire, unbridled passions, caged animals trapped in a life of servitude. Black Beauty was a best seller.
