"Hebra" Foal
 
This little guy showed up in my local CL - he's so darn cute!

Zebra x Horse = HEBRA

If I had a hebra I wouldn't put him up for sale. I'd keep him for myself.

Question is, since the dad was a Paint, were they trying for a foal with stripes and a white pattern? Would that even be possible (genetically)?

Are you sure that isn't photoshopped?

I've never known a zebra/horse cross to be called a hebra. The term I'm familiar with is zorse. I was wondering about a Hebrew horse and what it would look like.....

That was my thought too SR :lol:

Does it have to do with whether the sire of dam is a horse? Like the difference between a liger and a tigon?

Out of curiosity, can you make these guys into riding horses? I've seen pictures of people riding zebras, but have heard that they can be really difficult to break and ride. What about the crosses?

I've heard it is very hard to fit tack to them, but never had any experience myself.
