Many humans see horses as majestic animals with their natural strength and athleticism. They are undoubtedly stunning animals, but few recognize how diverse their appearances may be.
I’ve seen a lot of horses in my time, in all kinds of colors and sizes – but none quite like a ‘curly’.
It comes from a unique gene in their frame that offers them curly hair and makes their hair hypoallergenic (a bonus for hayfever-inclined or asthmatic horse proprietors!).
Yes, these are actual horses that actually exist. Obviously, these adorable creatures often referred to as ‘Curly’ get their name from their signature curly locks.
Curly ’thick and cuddly coats make them well-suited to snowy weather so they are far more common in places with colder climates. Though you could never have heard of them earlier, they’ve been around for a long time.
Sioux Indians held curlyes to high regard and have been reserved as transportation horses for chiefs and medicinal drug men. Their foundation continues to be closely contested amongst professionals.
Regardless of their origin, one thing that is for certain is their ability to delight and captivate their audience.
Whether they’re operating hard, interacting with one another, or actually goofing, these curlyes are beautiful to behold.
