TRAINED ZEBRAS PULLING CARRIAGES?!






Last week, I posted a photo of a team of zebras which looked like it was taken in the 1920s.

Well, a reader (thank you) sent this article to me and I thought you would enjoy it!

    I was very excited when I visited a farm that had a “pet” zebra, and couldn’t wait to pet him myself. Unfortunately, I was informed at a shout (as I’d bounded in front of the group I was with), just as my hand touched his face, “WATCH OUT – he BITES!!!!” I snatched my hand away. Yes, unfortunately, the stripe-ed one did indeed snap at me and I had no desire to try and touch him again. I’ve suffered a bad equine bite in the past and once was enough!

    I am truly astonished that someone was able to tame not one but FOUR of these beasts and get them to drive together. Quite an accomplishment!

    I have always wanted a Zebra since I was a child but read somewhere once they like to bite people and not let go. I suppose if raised in captivity things would be different. Awesome article and pictures. Thank you so much!

    Interesting story! I love zebras. I wonder what the other equines on the street thought about their odd-looking cousins.
