I have a long list. One that includes:
Zoë [Betsy] Burdi, my best friend’s baby goat. She was born on Christmas Eve, December 31, 2007. My first calf and it’s first rider. The zebra is a great example of the best of both art-form and biology.

A couple of weeks before Christmas Day the animal shelter gave us a zebra calf with a zebra stripe up top as a gift. They had taken the mother (who, I hope, can still see it) to a veterinary clinic which took care of the problem: it was a zebra, not a zebra fetus.
The problem, like so many things in life, was due to lack of knowledge. I don’t know what the “purchase” on the zebra is, although I know it was quite a bit more than the $35 it costs to buy an actual zebra from a zebra breeder. I believe that the zebra is the easiest animal to breed, though there has been some controversy and some breeders are still using zebra fetuses for breeding. I’m guessing it’s a result of a lack of information.
I don’t think the zebra, or its stripes or any other distinguishing features, were a factor in our decision, but having spent a long time talking with and training zebra breeder Judy and her wonderful wife Sarah, the zebra was definitely an issue. We felt bad for the parents that they had to raise both their babies on their own.
Betsy came a day early from New York with the calf. It was born with one stripe and two spots on his feet instead of either. His mother was able to put the two spots together to make a zebra stripe and, to my mind, more attractive.
Betsy and Sarah put a lot of thought into their decision to keep it, even going so far as to buy a zebra fetus so they could try and work it out between themselves to make it more like a zebra.

Betsy was named the first elephant zebra, a name that means “first elephant” in the language of elephant husbandry and has become a worldwide
