A zorse is a cross between a female horse and a male zebra. These beautiful mammals look similar to a horse, however, they carry stripes throughout their body just like zebras. There are other zebroids that are similar hybrids to the zorse, including zedonks or zonkeys, which are a zebra mixed with a donkey, and the zony. The zorse is an all-around docile and friendly creature.

Meet the Horses of Cenozoic North America

A true single-toed horse, Pliohippus roamed the grassy plains of North America about 12 million years ago, and may have survived into the Pliocene epoch. Although it closely resembled modern horses, there's some debate about whether the depressions in its skull, in front of its eyes, are evidence of a parallel branch in equine evolution.

Meet Eclyse - the amazing zebra crossing

Zorse: Cross between a zebra and a horse. Paint horses don't pick up color in their white areas, hence the zebra stripes are only picked up in the paint's "color zones".

A horse with the most unusual markings I've ever seen. It doesn't quite look like a zebroid, a cross between a zebra and a horse. It looks more like a cross between a tiger and a horse ... which, of course, is impossible. But even if you ignore the stripes, it has an unusual color, going from a nearly black back to a lighter belly and legs. An odd horse indeed!

Its not just puggles and schnoodles monopolizing the hybrid animal market. Three weeks ago, a zebra/horse hybrid made its way to the Stukenbrock safari park from Italy. The Zebroid or Zorses mother is a zebra and her father is a horse. She probably wont be able to reproduce herself since equine hybrids are infertile.People have been cross-breeding zebras and horses since colonial times, but Eclyses coloring is unusual for such hybrids. She has ber distinct maki

The Zorse is one of a number of equine hybrids that are known as Zebroids, which is the name given to an equine hybrid that has Zebra ancestry. The Zorse is the result of cross-breeding a generally male Zebra (stallion) with a female Horse (mare) to produce an animal that looks more like a Horse than a Zebra, but one that has stripes.
