Racing Stripes is apparently out in theaters now. (Got a whopping 4/10 at imdb.com.) I haven't seen it, and this isn't a review. It's a brief comment that zebras are nearly impossible to domesticate. If it could be done, it would have been done a long time ago, like horses. But it hasn't. Here's some links, about why not. The best is from the Library of Congress, and includes an old photo of a man riding a zebra.
