Zack the zebra

The Chronicle of the Horse posted a link to this article on Facebook last week.  Within minutes, my inbox was flooded with Zack related emails.

Apparently, people think of me when they see a jumping zebra.
I have to admit, he is awfully cute.  
No promises, but I've forwarded the link to my favorite crazy customizer.  A model sized version of Zack is not beyond the realm of possibility!

  3. Zac the Zebra lives by me, and his owners happen to be very good clients at the animal clinic I work at. They also have bears and lemurs :) Very cool people BTW

  4. Those folks must be some awesome trainers as I heard zebras were rather hard to train. That is really cool!

  5. Seeing him under saddle reminds me of what riding a donkey is like. I rode one of those huntseat for a while, and keeping him going and pointed where you wanted to go was always a challenge, haha.

  6. OMG, so cute! I met a baby zebra named Timmy once. I'd love to ride one just to be able to say I had.
