If he were a human he would be one of those body builders with a tiny butt XD He's absolutely stunning though

This breed has a thin body type... like the grey hound in the dog breeds. The coat is amazing. Looks like velvet. I wonder if it feels as soft as it looks. Beautiful color too. Thanks for sharing the photo so we can all see. I just looked the breed up. Thats how I know about the body type lol.

He was indeed a very stunning horse. Moved in a nice way, seemed like a very sweet horse in general and was a real eye-catcher. 
The breed itself is one of my favourites. I'm not looking for a new horse, and probbly won't get another one in quite a few years, but once that day comes I will definitely import a Teke:)

Such a lovely horse, this has got to be one of my favorite photos of yours! Very lovely! Looks like a photo right out of a breed book! I love his coloring reminds me of my colt although much sleeker and not as wholly mammoth like as Titan right now. Again gorgeous photo, if I ever improve on working with light colored horses I may try an art piece with him, this pose and build is just to beautiful not too!

I hate horse racing. They love them when they can race but if they get hurt it's all "Good to know ya *BANG*

Erhm... You are generalising a lot here I see.
This was taken during an endurance race, which is not the same thing as regular flat racing. Completely different dicipline. 
I've been into endurance racing for 10 years, and have groomed for people that ride on elite level. What I love about this dicipline is that pretty much everyone take extreme care about their horses, and if they get injuried they get treatment and rest. A friend of mine has participated in several EC and at least one WC, and she still have all of her retiered horses at home. One of her best horses (who did very well at a World Championship) can be seen in my gallery as a 20 year old guy, out in his pasture as a retiered horse. 
There are of course people who will see the horses as something that's only useful for racing and when they are no longer useful for anything. But there are far more people that care for their horses and see them as friends, and want to do anything te keep them sound and healthy. 
Please also note that you are speaking to someone who is actually a competing endurance rider. My horse Dragster can be seen a lot through me gallery. 4 years ago he got injuried, and had a bit of bad luck after that with his health. I've paid more than mostpeople do for their horses just for his treatments, and today have a 16-year old horse that I wouldn't dare to start racing again in case something happens. He's a hobby horse, and a friend. I would never dream of putting him down just because he's not useful as a racing horse. Most people I know that do both endurance racing and flat racing look at their horses in the same way as I do. 
You may hate horse racing, since everyone is entiteled to have their own oppinion. But know the difference between the diciplines, and please understand that just because someone compete in a certain dicipline, it does not mean that they will act a certain way and look at their horses as something else than a living being.

I've never been a fan of this breed. I have such a hard time getting over how small their build is. Feel like if I barely touch it, the poor horse is just going to keel over.

I grew up around TN Walkers, Morgans, Quarter Horses, TB, and small drafts so I'm use to seeing more meat/ muscle on horses.

Will admit I've never seen a shinier breed though!
