What do you get when you cross a horse with a zebra?

Why-a zorse, of course!

In what must be the ultimate "inter-racial" relationship, a safari park in Germany bred a horse and a zebra and getting-you guessed it-a zorse!

A male zebra and a female horse "accidentally" produced a baby zorse or zebroid.

The little cutie, a female, is unusual-not because she is the product of her parents but because instead of morphing the traits of both parents which results in muted striped all over, this gal has only two patches of strips!

Officials at the park are concerned that the little zorse be lonely without anyone who looks like her and so they are searching for a boyfriend for her. They fear that she will be ostracized and then become depressed because she is different.

It appears that being different when you are young-whatever the circumstances-is not desirable. Remember that they next time you see or hear something that might make another kid feel different or somehow not worth as much as someone else.

If it could happen to a zorse it could happen to all of our kids!

Have a great weekend! And if you happen to see a zorse roaming around your neighborhood who looks like he needs a friend-have I got a girl for you!
