I've spent hours pouring over photographs of Akhal-Tekes in Amrita's office. She has THOUSANDS. (From the distant past to the present day... of Akhal-Tekes all over the world!) Every once in while she still manages to procure images I have never seen before... or ones I am familiar with but can now admire with a different eye. I thought I'd share some (familiar) shots of a stallion previously owned by Sweet Water Farm: the late Pascha... whose metallic coat was nothing short of breathtaking!
Pascha's portraits are studies of sunlight on liquid gold.
And they don't do him justice.
An Akhal-Teke's sheen is extremely hard to capture on film.
