    I'm guessing people haven't had much success in training giraffes to be rode, then?

    Zebras are cool animals and would be interesting to have. There almost a horse there in the same family.

    My best friend's son, who is also my farrier owns a zebra he trained. Hope this link works. Was a news station that was there for a show he put on for my daycare kids.

    Sorry I had to comment on this one........although I do agree that some animals should not be "PETS" I have to disagree about the whole "wild animal" thing.

    You do have to remember horses were WILD once and some still run wild so your comment "NO wild animal should ever be a pet" is kinda silly coming from a horse person.

    I also know of a girl that I have meet and run against at some barrel races that has a pet Zebra and a pet Monkey. Both that are very friendly, they even take family pictures at the beach with the monkey in them, and the zebra's name is Ziggy.

    While I will say some animals are better left in the wild and not messed with I do have to disagree that all WILD anaimals should not be pets, because if no one ever braved a wild horse I would not be the proud owner of my mare today.
