These Horses Are So Beautiful You Won’t Believe They’re Real

There really isn’t such a thing as an ugly horse. Horses are some of the most beautiful animals on the planet. We associate them with freedom, elegance and power. And for good reason. But the breeds on this list are truly majestic. Their unique appearances give them an air of almost supernatural charm. You may have trouble believing some of them are real, but we assure you they are.

1. Chocolate Silver Dapple Pinto

• Called “Taffy” horses in Australia

Horses with the “silver dapple” gene usually have flaxen tails and manes, and a “dappled” body, with rings of lighter-colored hair appearing over a darker background. They are truly stunning, and look like something that galloped off the cover of a fantasy paperback. Unfortunately, they do not actually wield any magical powers. Unless you count the ability to drop jaws.
