When a horse is not merely a horse

Now there's a real Arabian horse! A desert-bred Arabian, not to be confused with the overbred and almost unrecognizable modern-day Western-bred variety. I speak as a person obsessed with Arabs since my teens, and someone who has owned a couple in my time. This horse is beautiful, quintessential to the fabled breed.  Photo from Fantasia Horse Festival in Algeria, via CNN. Lots of lovely photos in this article, photos that could have as easily been taken 100 years ago or, had photography existed then, several hundred years ago. Yet they are current.
