Zipper is a zebra-donkey hybrid, also known as a zonkey or zeedonk. She came to her forever home at Noah's Ark in 2012 from a loving home in Alabama. Being experienced horse people and wanting something a little different, they purchased baby Zipper around 4 months of age. Zipper grew larger and wilder as the years went on and the family was unable to tame her, and refused to use cruel methods to "break" her. Fearing they wouldn't be able to handle her in the event of a medical emergency, they contacted Noah's Ark to see if she could live with us. Zipper spends her days roaming the pasture with her best friend Doug the donkey, and our 100+ other equine residents.
