    Default Ever hear of a HERBA?

    I had never heard of a HERBA before.

    http://lancaster.craigslist.org/grd/4240998476.html

    Rare - Hebra

    Stallion: Paint
    Mare: Grant's Zebra
    *Both parents are calm & easy, notice the halter on Mom

    Born end of May
    Measured and expected to reach 15h

    This little guy is calm and easy to work with, already has his halter on and will lead.
    No reason he couldn't be worked with to ride.

    Barn photos are from just a couple days ago, outside photos are obviously from summer.

    Since the stallion is a paint and the mare is a Zebra is that like wearing stripes and plaid?

    I have heard them called Zorses. Or maybe a zorse is when the sire is the zebra.

    Cute little guy. I wonder what discipline he would be suited for?

    There's another thread about this ad around here somewhere...

    It's a zorse when the sire is a zebra and the dam is a horse.

    It's a hebra when the sire is a horse and the dam is a zebra.

    Just like the difference between a mule and a hinny.

    I replied to this in the other thread, but will repost here.

    Where would people get the zebra from? I didn't think you could go out and buy them...unless a zoo had a dispersal sale???

    Not sure where they started getting them at, but I've seen several purebred zebra foals for sale on different mid-Atlantic Craigslist ads the past several months.

    you missed where one of our own had a temporary ban on backyard chickens, because she cautioned about zebra ownership.
    In some areas they are readily available.
    (I am always amazed, much of the CL craziness seems to blow around my neck of the woods, no crazy horse ads, no exotic critters...only a few bunnies or chickens, no crazy amounts of cats and dogs either...it must be heaven, after all!)

    Wow. What a neat looking little guy!
    I've always heard them called Zorses too. I'd be eager to learn what kind of disciplines he would be suitable for!

    There are places breeding them. Depending on state law, zebras may or may not be considered exotic animals and may or may not require a special permit. The laws vary pretty widely.
