Ugliest horse ever

Ugliest horse ever

A young Arabian horse, El Rey Magnum, caused controversy in the veterinarian world. The colt shows an extreme dish to its face, a trait unique to the breed, but not to the extreme shown. The 2017 colt raised concern, as veterinarians believe his extremely dished face to be harmful. Such extreme, they say, may cause breathing problems in the young horse. Unlike dogs, horses can’t breed through their mouths. A potential blockage in their airways could lead to serious problems.

Like most animal breeds, the Arabian may suffer from congenital defects, some even fatal. The risk, however, comes from accepting what vets see as defects as necessary and welcome breed characteristics. Orrion Farms, owner of El Rey Magnum, says the colt is a step toward perfection. They claim he is already worth millions.
