Oh yes, it definitely adds to the wow factor!

Ya know, I also heard that zebras are back with white stripes, but I don't know how true that is.

Their skin is black, so I'd say they're black with white stripes?

Zebras are much more difficult than horses. I've heard it's recomended to get a donkey first and get used to training them before moving on to a zebra.

Zebras are not domesticated, they are wild animals. Yes, you can tame wild animals, but they are still wild.

If you want to buy a zebra, REALLY do your research. Don't choose one because it's cheaper, buy one that has been handled ect.

I'll very likely NEVER own a zebra, but I admit to wanting one ;)

Who doesnt want to own a zebra, I mean honestly. The thing is are you willing to fork out that kind of money because of the cool effect. I think it would be fun to own one tho I don't think it would survive our winters but I would only care for one if one were given to me. Even for a small amount of money I would make the actual purchase.

I would seriously consider buying a zebra. I think it would be so cool! I definitely would try trying a donkey first though (I love donkey's too ). It would have to just be a fun pet though, I don't think you could expect it to be anything more than that. There really aren't that expensive you look into buying a baby ($4000 is very doable), but I would only do it id I had come into a good phase of financial security. It probably wouldn't be a good idea unless you had a lot of horse training experience.

My uncle used to own a Zony (zebra/pony hybred) but he wasn't very friendly. He pretty much wanted to be left alone. I don't think he had very much handling as a foal. My uncle owned a petting zoo so that's why he had him. He was not a horse trainer so nothing ever become of the Zony. He didn't have him for very long.

I wonder if Zebra are any good with kids? How neat would that be to have your little kid riding a Zebra in the 4th of July parade!

I would NOT put a kid on a zebra. They're wild animals!

I personally think, if the zebra was tame and you thought that it wouldn't freak or anything, then I think you could put a kid on it. Zebras arn't mean things going around trying to hurt kids. It's a risk to put one on, yes, but the world has many risks. And besides, a zebra is like a horse anyway. A horse as just as many risks...

Don't worry, I have no plans of running out and buying a zebra right now and throwing my kids on top of it (if I had an kids to speak of ). I was just curious. I know that they are wild animals, but will the proper taming and training I think it could be done. If I DID get a zebra, I would wait for at least a year after I had it (and was saddle trained) before I would even think about putting a kid on it. And the kid would have to already know how to ride horses. The truth is that there are just as many risks with horses as there are with zebras... it just may be that the risks are slightly more extreme with zebras.

It was really just a curious thought.
