As humans evolved from hunter-gatherers to Neanderthals all the way to the modern homo sapiens, we have domesticated quite a variety of things. Whether it be making corn bigger and sweeter or altering watermelons to make them seedless, humans have taken nature and altered it so that it can more effectively suit our needs.
We have done that with the wolves which have evolved into a more domesticated and docile dog and we have more or less done the same with cats and birds as well.
And it seems like some vets are now doing that to horses too.
Orrion Farms is a specialist Arabian breeding farm out in Ellensburg, Washington in the United States.
The farm recently revealed their nine-month-old colt named El Rey Magnum. This horse is unique in that it has a ‘dished appearance.’ This Arabian colt was bred and designed so that its nose was more concave or ‘dished.’
Although these horse breeds are known for their ‘dished profile’ many equine experts are lambasting this new feature by calling it ‘ridiculous.’
However, the farm insists that Magnum ‘is a stepping stone to getting close to perfection,’ and that US vets have examined their colt and no medical issues have been found.
