Is this an Akhal Teke

Came across this on Facebook and thought it was really something but the breed of the horse is what I was wanting to know

The video isn't close enough to tell. I'm betting probably not, though and more likely a WB or TB.

I'm not sure where you're seeing a metallic sheen. He just looks like a well groomed, healthy horse to me.
