golden beneath the mud
We're thinking of buying this beautiful horse. He's a 7-yr old Akhal-teke gelding. Akhal-teke originate from Turkmenistan and are considered a thoroughbred breed, like Arabians and the English thoroughbreds.
Normally, the buckskins and palominos have a metallic shimmer and look like they are gold-plated. This one protects his gold-plating with a layer of mud!
