Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.

Today in hair, a horse has a really nice head of it. How nice? Fabio nice. The majestic creature also has muscles just like Fabio and romance-novel-cover levels of drama like Fabio. This is a bizarrely handsome horse.

GQ alerted us to the existence of this gorgeous horse, whose name is Frederik the Great. Look, it even has Fabio's smoldering stare.

Frederik, a king among men and horses and romance novels.
