• the akhal-teke is a turkmene horse. the name 'akhal' comes from the ahal region of turkmenistan. it is one of the rarest and purest horse breeds in the world. it was allegedly seen in europe (brought by the ottoman empire) at the siege of vienna for the first time. it was mentioned as 'turk's wing' in the oldest comprehensive turkish dictionary.

    these horses are super durable and can go without water for 3 days. i have never seen such a fascinating, majestic, and underrated animal. yes, in my opinion, the akhal-teke is the most beautiful animal in the world. it looks like a mythological character.
