Horses are amazing! Majestic animals that are incredibly beautiful and truly a sight to see.
Oftentimes, people believe horses are all essentially the same. Unlike dogs which vary in size and shape, horses seem to be universally similar to one another. But in reality, horses do vary a great deal in size, shape and color. And there’s a certain breed of horse that is definitely far different from the rest.
The curly hair horse! Otherwise called “Curlies”, these are definitely some of the cutest horses on the planet.
They have a gene which provides them their unique curly-haired look. Everyone loves curls, right? Heck, humans spend a lot of time and money trying to achieve that curly-hair look. For these horses, curls come naturally.
They are “hypoallergenic” due to a lack of protein in their hair. For some people, that protein can cause allergic reactions. The absence of this protein changes how the formation of dander occurs in these horses.
In cold environments, the thick and curly coats keep them warm.
These horses have been around a long time, but many people have never seen them before. Once you do see a Curly, you definitely don’t forget it!
