    looks like a young zebra... i suspect they will send him to a grownup zoo when he's a little older.

    Gotta love people who would rather shoot video than try to catch them and possibly avert a traffic/horse disaster.

    I saw this story yesterday. Those two were pretty darn lucky. Thank goodness they ended up safe and sound.

    I think the term "petting zoo" is a bit of a stretch. The other news stories I saw made it sound more like somebody's back yard.

    HEY!...The zebra already knows that a kissing sound means canter. Right at the start of the video you can see it!
