Question and answer
What are the similarities and differences between zebras and horses?
There are many other differences between zebra and horses. Zebra are really more like donkeys than horses. A zebra has a solid striped tail with a tuft of hair right at the end of the tail like a donkey; a horse’s tail is made of long hair. [ A zebra has a much stockier build than a horse, being shaped more like a donkey. A zebra is much stronger than a domesticated horse of a similar size. Zebra also have long ears that stick up, like a donkey, rather than the shorter ears of a horse. Horses have long hairy manes that fall onto their necks; zebra have stiff short manes like donkeys. There
are both similarities and differences in the way that horses and donkeys vocalize. Horses and zebra snicker and snort but horses whinny and zebra bray like a donkey. Zebra, unlike horses, are not built for riding, they have no withers, withers are the bump at the joint between the neck and shoulders, nor do zebra have a dip in the back to allow for a saddle. In temperament too horses and zebra are very different. Zebra are unpredictable, easily stressed and tend to panic under pressure. Zebra will bite viciously. Horses can be readily domesticated whereas it is next to impossible to domesticate a zebra. ]
