Entry from US English dictionary
(also zebra mule)
The offspring of a zebra and a horse (strictly, a male zebra and a female horse), typically sterile. Zorses resemble horses or mules with dark zebra stripes.
- It is well documented that zorses tend to inherit the ‘unpredictability’ of their zebra half.
- Unlike a horse, a zorse must begin training within a few days of being born in order to be a docile animal.
- Additionally, this hybrid is unusual because most zorses are the product of a female horse and a male zebra.
