giddy up, stripy horse!


** Click here for Episode 189 **

We’d just booked our research tour of southern Africa to delve further into last week’s zebra-riding question, but now have to seek a refund as Charlene has done our work for us:

I’ve recently moved back from Kenya (I lived there for three years) and went on many safaris.

I asked ‘Why can’t we ride zebras?’ in Nakuru park.

Apparently we can’t because they don’t have strong rib cages and they would break and the zebra would die.

And there go our dreams of becoming zebra dressage champions.
