Zorse – Zebra and Horse Cross Breed

Yes it is real. The zebra and horse cross breed is very common in parts of Africa where zebras are more resistant to diseases and horses are not. By crossing zebras with horses it makes for a healthier hybrid. Such hybrids are commonly called zorse. Zebras crossed with ponies are commonly called zonies.
