This is a rum photo Harry. And as Stripes had once been trained to win the Kentucky Open, maybe your fella could be trained to win next years 'Aspull Cup'. He seems to favour a right-handed course.

I wonder what all the other animals think when they see the imitation zebra - they must be confused.... He's not bothered anyway! ;0))

I first saw a horse wearing a zebra jacket on a misty morning down Standish wood lane and I really thought it was a zebra for a while

It was found that stripes on zebras help keep flies off them in their African environment (apparently, the stripes confuse the flies) - perhaps this theory is being applied here. I'm sure the horse will be grateful if it works!

He's only wearing this because his Tiger Suit is in the wash.

I must see if I can find a 'zebra' striped cape - might keep the midges off- at the moment I have two bites on my head and one on my hand. They must have attacked when I was bringing the washing in!

I dont know about stripes keeping flies off, our Venetian blinds dont stop them

Are you sure it’s not been set up to act as a decoy for a lion hunter?

Oh No!, Dave, not the Shevvy Shikari.
