This angelic horse is rarely caught on camera; much less seen in person. When I stumbled upon footage capturing this majestic creature in all its glory, I just couldn’t hold back the tears. This is the most astounding creation I have ever seen!
Every once in a while, the awe-inspiring beauty of our world reminds us of just how small we are in comparison to our Creator. And the more I learned more about this incredible horse, the more amazed I became.
Rarely seen by humans, this dying breed — known as the Akhal-Teke, possesses a distinct feature that sets it apart from all other horses.
Known for its stunning coat and rare, metallic sheen; the ancestry of this angel-like horse dates back over 3,000 years. This incredible horse was given a mesmerizing skin that projects a gold-like “glow” that is absolutely hypnotizing.
According to recent studies: “The hair structure of Akhal-Tekes is quite fine and rather unusual. Their ‘glow’ is caused by the smallness, or even absence, of the opaque core that is typically at the center of the hair shaft. The transparent part of the hair, or medulla, takes up the extra space and acts much like a fiber optic tube, bending light through one side of the hair and refracting it out the other side.”
Sadly, seeing this magnificent horse in-person is next to impossible; as recent reports speculate there are only an estimated 1,250 Akhal-Teke horses left in this world. This awe-inspiring creation is now classified as “threatened” on the Conservancy’s Conservation Priority List.
The Akhal-Teke’s glittering gold color is simply bewitching; it’s no wonder our ancestors commonly referred to them as “heavenly horses!”
Surely this is one of God’s most magnificent creations. But don’t take my word for it, see this beautiful horse for yourself in the video below:
As I watched this wondrous creation in amazement, I just couldn’t help but think of Psalm 92:5 & 8, which read: “How magnificent are your works, oh Lord! Your thoughts are unfathomable…You, O LORD, will be exalted forever.”
Please share if this angelic horse inspired your heart today. Our God is a masterful creator!
