See what happens when you mess around

You get a Zorse


A zorse or zebrula is a zebroid, specifically the offspring of a zebra stallion and a horse mare. The rarer reverse pairing is sometimes called a horbra. Like most other hybrids, the zorse is sterile, meaning it cannot go on to reproduce young thus creating a separate Zorse species, completely differentiated from Horses and Zebras altogether is impossible.

Since a zebra is stripped to confuse its lion predator a zorse will only survive in the barnyard.
