Very clever horses have stripes

It’s common knowledge that zebras are in fact very clever horses who, observing their equine counterparts being hunted by humans for meat, arranged to have stripes painted all over their bodies in order to fool their less well endowed (intellectually speaking) foe into thinking they were some sort of tiger…and to be avoided.

The zebras were almost unbearably smug when the hunting progressed to include riding, and deciding they were not destined to be the servant of humans, had the stripes tattooed on all new born zebra foals.

No horses here, nothing to see…..move along…..
