What are these animals wearing ?

in busy •  4 months ago

I do not know the answer.

I took these pictures last weekend.
Without the zoom of my camera, I could not even tell, that they were wearing these fashionable pieces.

Are they preparing for a bank robbery ?

Is it for sun protection ?

I am pretty sure, someone out there knows, why these zebras are wearing horse costumes. Please share - I am really curious and will reward the best answers.

Anyway, the correct answer is : it's a flymask (LOL -> like a super hero horse ?!)

A fly mask or fly cap is a mask used on horses to cover the eyes, jaw, and sometimes the ears and muzzle to protect from flies. The mask is semi-transparent and made from a mesh allowing the horse to see and hear while wearing it.... ---> WIKIPEDIA

Oh and by the way... about the ZEBRA.... It's just because we are never satisfy with who we are : we need to wear masks.

I think a couple of people have got it right. I just search "horse wear mask" and concluded so from this page:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fly_mask

Fly mask
A fly mask or fly cap is a mask used on horses to cover the eyes, jaw, and sometimes the ears and muzzle to protect from flies. The mask is semi-transparent and made from a mesh allowing the horse to see and hear while wearing it. The mask may also provide some protection from UV-light and some are treated with insect repellent. Fly and mosquito protection is an important part of overall horse care, as biting insects are both a source of irritation and also may transmit disease.

Yes, that's totally what it said in the wiki

protection from falling crypto graphs

These zebras are facing strong xenophobia from western horses. As a political and religious statement they wear the so called „burkhorsa“ leaving only the faces free and thus protects them from racism as well as feminism. Zebras have taken feminism so far that male ones are only safe outside if they wear this kind of protection against female zebra eyes. There are rumours the first suggestion about racism is only a lie launched by the female zebra religion leaders to keep down patriarchy.

Haha - schöne Idee! Ein bisschen bleibt das Schmunzeln doch im Halse stecken.... ;-)

Maybe they have some wounds and these masks are for protection.

very bright and beautiful picture with green grass,@felixxx,☺️

Hermoso lugar nos muestras hoy @felixxx, donde los Caballos pueden descansar y comer con total calma

Sometimes horses are bothered by flies around their eyes. I think this is to protect them from such pests.

It's a bit obvious isn't it? They are just super heroes that forgot their cloaks. duhh

Humoriger Tierschutz? Ich dachte erst an die Mischwesen, die @louis88 und @rivalzzz im Wildpark gesehen haben... oder waren die auch maskiert? Die Rätselauflösung ist ernüchternd pragmatisch - das Geniale an dem Post ist die Anregung des Verfassers, mal zu fantasieren... Kommt man ja sonst nicht oft zu. Danke.

It looks like the Horses want to be Zebras for the day

This is a fly protection mask for horses.
