Speechless Sunday - Zebra in NY?

Real Estate Agent with SHAHAR Management

The other day after a Realtor Tour I was with a new agent who heard about the “farm” near my house while we were on tour from one of the mortgage people.  We finished up slightly early so we ran by the farm before our next appointments so he could see this wonderful place with all of the animals I am always taking pictures of for my blog.  


As we pulled up the Zebra was right up at the road which never happens.  He is always way back in the fields and very hard to see usually.  Of course I didn’t have my camera but was able to snap a few with my phone.  Beautiful!

I was just sitting here thinking.  Man has domesticated horses and ride them.  But, they haven't gotten around to doing the same with zebras. . .What's up with that?

Hi Debra. What a nice looking photo of the Zebra on a Farm. I never would have suspected you'd be able to find one there.

Debra, every once in a while, a zebra seems to show up in someone's pasture, and I have always wondered what one would find to do on a farm.  Your's is a good looking one!

Good evening Debra ... that is so much fun to see a zebra on a farm with mules.  That would make for an interesting visit.  Thanks for sharing.

Hi Debra,

Amazing to see a zebra on a farm. I only see them at zoos but maybe they are having a great life here with the other animals.

Well, now, that's something you don't see everyday, Debra.  And, a great shot of a fine looking animal.  I wonder what the other guys think of him?
