Yes, they have a reputation for being pretty disagreeable, but it seems that they're not entirely beyond redemption.

Over at Tring Park, Walter Rothschild had a collection of exotic species and successfully broke a number of Zebras to harness.

I just wonder how long it took and how many failed to make the grade.

It appears if they were born in captivity, they can be trained by a person who has a good relationship with them. But unlike horses, a Zebra caught in the wild is almost impossible to break. Like everything, there must be exceptions. :haha:

I've heard that for a number of years.

For the movie Sheena, they painted a horse to look like a zebra.

I'm working with second hand wisdom here, I haven't seen any Zebras in my neighborhood since... ever. :haha:

I used to know a zebra...

...but, he hardly ever writes anymore.

I would love to see something like that, but I doubt that's on the itinerary.

Every time I see a compilation of "pictures from ___", whether it's Omaha or Antarctica, I estimate how many years it would take the normal non-resident to accumulate the right combination of subject, season, weather, light, etc, to capture those pictures. It's usually a lot. :haha:

Gravdigr 06-18-2014 03:00 PM

Don't forget research, Bruce. The 'normal non-resident' won't even know about the majority of these places.

Like my story about taking a picture of a mountain in NZ reflected in a specific puddle.

Fairbanks, AK, fire.

Gravdigr 06-19-2014 03:47 PM

No, that's the sun.

BigV 06-24-2014 11:21 PM

WOW!!! That is truly awesome, what a picture.
