I just saw a zebra in a paddock down the street! I live in Canada, so they're definitely not native to my area :) He was turned out with what looked to be some yearlings (horses). And I don't know if this is the right section to be posting in, but it got me to thinking, what kinds of equines have HF folks worked with or ridden?
I spent a couple of summers working at a donkey sanctuary (hey, homeless donkeys need a place, too!). We had donkeys, mules, hinnys, and a few horses, about 50 equines in all. I did ride one of the smallish mules a few times; he was green but it was much like riding a large pony... except that he was a very independent thinker. Not sure if that's because he was a mule, or if it was just his personality! I loved the donkeys, they were like crosses between a horse and a dog, very affectionate and friendly.
What kinds of horse types have you known, and what do you think of them? And has anyone ever ridden a zebra? It's kind of a secret fantasy of mine...
