I remember seeing zebras online a few years ago starting at $2000. Look up exotic animal sale websites and you'll find them a lot cheaper.

Good thinkin on the exotic sites!

I checked with www.lollibros.com, and their '08 market sales said this for Zebras:
ZEBRA - M 2900.00-5000.00; Top M 6000.00 & 10,000.00. F 3850.00-5600.00 Top 7750.00; Gelding 4000.00

I've been searching for ANY info on legalities of ownership, and anything to do with USDA...nothing so far.

I've even got our local Selict Sires guy checking his connections for Frozen semen....

This MAY be worth looking into!

Why women can't put on mascara with their mouth closed?

Thanx dear---you know who u are!!

I once heard that zebra's were unable to be trained... I guess that was a myth!

I've heard that too. I was told that's why you never see a zebra being ridden, because it can't be broke.

That is so cool though!

I do have to say, as much as I love them, I think they should remain wild animals. IMO there's no need to domesticate them.

OK, I respect your opinion, Appylover, but I gots a dumb question. A Zebra is an Eqine - we all know that. So why is your Appy, or my QH, a donkey, or any other Eqine OK to domesticate? Heck, they even interbreed with each other (Zebras included).

That's a good question Ruby Tuesday.

When I think of zebras, I think of either seeing them on TV in Africa, or seeing them at the zoo.and most animals that are in the zoo do not make good pets and should remain wild.

I guess the difference between one of my horses and a zebra is that I'll always think of them of being wild and I'll think of my horses as pets. Maybe that's not right, but that's my opinion :)

that's all cool,Appy. Just wondering that's all, an I can see where you're comin from. I can kinda agree with what you say, with how you just associate them with being wild.

I think that kinda adds to the WOW factor, too.

I don't think it's a matter of Zebra's cannot be domesticated, just the fact that they have not been and they've been living in close quarters with lions and hyenas and cheetas and croc's and such even up until today! Our wild mustangs have not had to deal with the predators that Zebras have to deal with every day, for a long time and that's why I think they would be harder to tame at this point.
