A Zonkey by imerald A Zonkey by imerald
This is a cross between a zebra and a donkey. I don't recall what they're called, but I'm calling it a Zonkey. It sounds cool. This was at a medieval fair I went to over the weekend.

At the time I posted this, I couldn't find hardly anything about what this cross was. Thankfully we now have wikipedia to tell us all about it. Thank you for the information.

Those hybrids are called "Cebroide" in my native tongue. I'm not found on mixing species like this, but donkeys and zebras are pretty closer. Such mix makes me remember wild african ass.
Nice photo, I'm not used to see them ;)

They've crossed Zebras with Shetland Ponies as well as other full-sized horses. I have two pictures I've scanned out of horse magazines. I think it's way cool, yet way weird. If zebras are stubborn, and you cross it with a donkey...you get one REALLY stubborn animal!

Awesome shot though. Poor thing needs a better fitting saddle and it's belly strap is too tight, but whaddya do? :) (Smile) He's all cute & fuzzy.
