    Had this sent to me today. Its an Akhal Teke, so the question is - is it black going grey, but the Teke influence makes its coat shimmer and glow or is it a totally different colour than black going grey and if so - what is it?! :wink:

    my first thought as soon as I saw his face was some form of Buckskin or silver, he doesn't scream grey to me however like you said the shimmery coat can change things a bit so who knows. Very pretty boy!!

    WOW!! He's gorgeous. Sadly i have no idea about your question, but my guess would be black going grey..

    The Akele Teke's have hollow hair that reflects the light. I think that explains the high gloss look.

    I'm not saying this in an accusatory tone, but that horse looks a tad bit photo-shopped. If his color truely is as shown, then he is awesome beyond awesome. But the dark patch that's triangular shaped on his hip doesn't quite look right to me. I do love the Akhal-teke's, though! Hopefully someone with more "know" then me can chime in. :)
