Zorse

Anyone know about these? http://www.dreamhorse.com/show_horse.php?form_horse_id=1347755&share_this=Y
I'm just very curious as to the temperment and behavior of a zebra/horse cross. Anyone ever seen one? Or had experience with one?

I've heard of them, never seen one, but heard of them.
But I believe a lot of the pictures out there of 'Zorses' are probably photo shopping job. Some are probably legit, but not all of them, haha. :)

yeah id be wary of 'zorses'. the only time ive ever heard of them being advertised is when they have been photoshopped. a true zorse would be worth a lot and probably sold privately rather than on a public website. JMO though

A zorse or zebrula is a zebropoid, specifically the offspring of a zebra stallion and a horse mare.

Zorse's are real, but I wouldn't get one. This is coming from working in a zoo though. Zebra's are skittish, aggressive, and tempermental...I wouldn't want to try and train one

They are usually VERY expensive though. The ones you see on Craigslist or whatever are generally a scam.

There was a ranch here in OK that purchased a young zebra stallion for the purpose of breeding zorses, however I don't believe they still have him. They had done a lot of research I remember reading everything they had posted. Like Spastic said, according to this they are very temperamental and can be very difficult to train. The breeding age is different also males are upwards of 5 years old before breeding while typical horses can and often do breed at a much younger age. Stud fees can be anywhere from 5k to who knows, I believe they had theirs at around 5000 and had paid 10k for him.
