    Yeah, usually hybrids are name by what the sire and dam are. Hebras have horse sires and zebra dams. Zorses are the opposite.

    According to an article I read somewhere, zorses are actively bred as hardier riding animals in Africa. No idea if that's true or not.

    I wonder if this foal is minimal tobiano with the high whites in back and what looks like white in the tail.

    I have read they are much like mules with training. Zebra's are not domestic but with the right training they can even be trained to jump.


    And here is a zorse. I would not mind having him in my barn :)

    There was a horseback safari outfitter in the 80's that used zorses as his pack and ride animals. They were all brown and had the distinctive stripes. I saw a photo of his pack string on a picket line and it looks fun. I can't seem to find any references to it now.

    I was going to mention Zack, myself.

    He sure is cute. I think he wants to come up here and live in CO ;)

    I follow a Zorse on facebook who lives in Michigan :) She is a belgian/zebra cross, and seems like a nice solid one! Definitely wouldn't mind having her in my barn ;) Or any kind similar for that matter!

    I remember for years I wanted a Zorse... I still wouldn't turn one away, but the Carolina Marsh Tacky horse has gotten priority over the Zorse :P

    I posted this craigslist ad on a bulletin board for New England horse people, and pretty much everyone hates the idea of a zebra hybrid. Apparently, zebras are incredibly dangerous. If anyone wants to take a look, I thought I would post it here..

    That being said, I don't have anything against this poor zorse//hebra! I wish I could get one!
