Theres a cute little petting zoo next town over from me and they a have Zebra and a Zedonk I think it was. The zebra it was so cute all sun bleached out lol.

The Zebra

The Zedonk and the little deer that snuck in the pic lol (his ears aren't flat cause he was mad he was trying reach the food the kids had lol)

For those of you who keep mentions Racing Stripes I love that movie!!!

Actually, they are probably joking, but in reality they used real zebra(s?) in the movie. So to an extent they are making a point.

I know a man who has a trained zebra.. Well trained and very docile. You do have to know what you are doing to have one. Like a Mule or Donkey, they are a bit different to handle.

The clip? Heck yes it's real.. Can't imagine how that would be faked.. lol

I really wouldn't mind having one, and as I've heard, they're not very hard to obtain. My boyfriend knew of a guy who had several (among other wild animals) just to look at, and they all cost only about $3000 each.

From my experience with them they randomly try to kick your head off. I'm not apt for dealing with one, although my trainer wants one. And whenever our animal healer lady (not a vet, but she takes all our sick animals) finds a zebra my boss might just buy it... i'm not looking forward to that day and having to mess with it lol.

Years ago I was at Mule days in Bishop and the parade was going on. A young gal was riding a zebra all along the parade route and streets. I stopped and talked to her about him, she just rode him with a bareback pad.
