Horsewoman Paints Her Horse in Zebra Colours

Horsewoman Paints Her Horse in Zebra Colours

According to an article in a German magasine, Claudia Wide believes Zebra’s naturally repel blood sucking insects such as horse flies due to their striped coat patterns.

Wide chose to use cattle paint to paint stripes on her horse to ward off these pests. Scientists accept this theory stating that such flying insects find Zebras are not optically as attractive as solid coloured animals. So if any budding entrepeneurs are out there, get inventing those zebra coloured horse coats.
