Brief background: My mom does pony rides, and thus has a wide variety of ponies in all shapes, sizes and attitudes.
She took my 2 year old niece to a "safari" zoo yesterday, and one of the animals they had there was a zony. Mom fell in love with it (she loves having different animals on her farm), and she was inspired to ask the owner what she would have to do to get one. He laughed it off, but soon learned she was very serious.
Mom explained her business, and he sobered up and said that zebras can be a lot more aggressive when mating than horses or ponies. So naturally on the ride home mom was making a short list of the mares with enough spunk and attitude to handle a zebra.
My mom is insane hahaha
