    The patterning of zebras arose as camoflage in zoos to prevent visitors from differentiating them against the bars of the cage.

    i think about zebras. and sometimes shire horses. and sometimes women. but the last area of thought gets me into trouble. so best to stick to zebras and shires.

    What's it filling? The only thing that comes to mind is a 3ft deep hole.

    Roan = white hairs throughout the coat. Technically, that filly I posted is not a roan, she's just an extreme sabino with roaning but for all intense and purposes... Yes, that is roan.

    the horse has passed!!! yay!!!!
    i have great news, fillies are allowed to be roan. so the horse has definitely passed. well, to quote kissmenow, she has passed to "all intents and purposes". shall we say grade C?

    i've been thinking a lot about zebras recently. most horses are happy to be just one colour. for instance shire horses are black, grey, or bay. but this is not good enough for zebras. they have to go all stripey. are they just showing off?

    (addendum for american readers. in america, shire horses can also be chestnut. which is a bit daft, really.)

    oh, a question: what does tsr mean by spam? do they mean something posted in a lot of places - the usual meaning of the word. or do they mean nonsense?
    Originally they were called 'Crossings' ,as they were a cross-breed of a number of other horses. It was only later when a more recent explorer went to Africa and noticed they were the same colour as Zebra's Crossings (named after J.H.Zebra -the prolific inventor of the early part of the twentieth century),that they were humorously named 'Zebra's'. The name zebra has stuck ever since.

    it is good to have a historian on board. it's funny really. seen a lot of zerba crossings and a lot of zebras, like an idiot never came to the obvious conclusion that the zebra is named after the crossing.
