    From Wikipedia:

    A zorse is the offspring of a male zebra and a female horse. This cross is also called a zebrula, zebrule, zebra mule or golden zebra. The rarer reverse pairing is sometimes called a horbra, hebra, zebrinny or zebret. Like most other animal hybrids, the zorse is sterile.

    In namibia you shall find a Donze and a Zedo, also sterile and extremely lazy.

    Well we found one with the wild horses on Namibia.



    The owners of the farm didn't even know about it.

    They did however say that there was a zebra that thought and was convinced, that it was a horse. This was close to Aussenkehr.

    We found about 40 horses

    Henris,

    Ek kaap nie die thread nie, maar dit is interessant van wilde perde teen die rivier.

    Baie mense maak die fout as hulle 'n klompie perde in die Suide sien om te aanvaar dat dit die sg wilde perde van die Namib is.

    Wat hulle egter nie aan dink nie is die feit dat perde en donkies vir baie jare die enigste vervoermiddel in Suidwes was en op byna elke plaas was 'n paar perde vir boerderydoeleindes en donkies van die werkers.

    Namate hulle as vervoermiddel vervang is die motorvoertuie is die diere maar net gelos en het hulle aangeteel, deur drade gebreek en weiding en water gesoek. Veral in die suide met skraal weiding en groot onomheinde plase asook groot bewaringsgebiede en geen natuurlike vyand nie het die diere vermeerder.

    In die Noorweste het ons eenvoudig, veral wilde donkies voor die voet geskiet omdat hulle weiding en drade geskadig het'

    Hulle het in areas inbeweeg waar hulle nie gehinder is en daar aangeteel. Hullle het dan ook weerstand opgebou teen honger en dors.

    Ek het in 'n ander thread genoem van die Herero's wat juis hierdie diere opgekoop het en hulle na die noordweste geneem het. Die gebruik het ook nou uitgesterf.

    Die slotsom is dat nie alle klompies perde nie noodwendig die sogenaamde Wildeperde van die Namib is nie.

    Well, we were told that these were the wild horses.

    Then probably not the ones that were left by the Germans then.

    I am sure that a lot of the horses in Namibia actually stems from german horses which was left all over.

    All I am trying to state is that unattended horses/donkeys get wild in a short time.
    It also may be that "German" horses mixed with domesticated animals.

    I am no expert on this and only try to underline a less known fact.

    If a zebra can believe it is actually a horse ( Henris post), I can now understand some people behaving like a donkey.

    Volgens die ondergemelde is die Namib se Wilde Perde 'n afgesonderde groep:

    Die Republikein
    7.10.2011
    Jan Coetzer, onbesonge held van die Namib se wilde perde
    Oom Jan s dat baie mense op verskeie wyses tot die oorlewing van die wilde perde van die Namib bygedra het. Terselfdertyd het hy alle krediet aan die eertydse CDM gegee vir die volgehoue steun wat tot die voortbestaan van die perde in die goed gepolisieerde Sperrgebiet gelei het. In dieselfde trant het hy sy dank teenoor die Suid-Afrikaanse Spoorwe uitgespreek wat gesorg het dat water ononderbroke vir die perde by Garub beskikbaar was.
    As n man wat altyd n liefde vir diere gehad het, veral perde, het die mistieke aard van die wilde perde hom aangetrek. Die feit dat hulle in hierdie afgesonderde gebied onder uiterste toestande kon bestaan en n suiwer ras kon word weens dekades se afsondering en natuurlike seleksie wat slegs die sterkstes laat oorleef het, het hom getref.
