Naked foal syndrome (NFS) is a fatal inherited disorder that has been found in pure and part-bred Akhal Teke horses.
Foals with NFS are born without hair, and may have other physical abnormalities too.
All NFS-affected horses recorded so far have died before three years of age.
The cause of death is not known.
