Zebra-Horse Cross

I didn't even know they could mate. They can and they did and the result looks like it has the head and hind-end of a zebra and the neck and chest of a white horse.

Scientists can cross loads of things, but the offspring are unhealthy and unable to reproduce usually, something is officially a different species if it can't breed with another and create offspring that are capeable of reproducing themselves.
Eg: Horse + Donkey = Muel - unable to mate
Lion + Lepoard = Lepon - unable to mate
Great Dane + Shitzu = Messed up dog - able to mate

I'm getting a vision of a Lion and Shitzu mating. Pretty sure that one doesn't end well.

of course horses and zebras can mate, they are in the same family. but like rebecca said the offspring would be infertile. however, the "zorse" shown is white and zebra patterned because the zebra was most likely bred with a paint horse. most "zorses" are solid colored with a darker hued zebra pattern overlayed and built like a mule.

I wonder what they sound like. The darker pattern of zebra stripes does show up on this picture.

I think not need to worry after looking at the God creation, he can craete any thing regardless of mixing colour or body posture.
