Spring’s arrival brought about some big changes in the life of our 9-month-old Hartmann’s mountain zebra colt, Yipes. Over the past few months, we have seen our curious and brave young zebra become more inquisitive and confident every day. It has been such a joy to watch him grow from the playful colt who stuck like glue by his mother Mackenzie’s side to the social and adventurous explorer he is today.
Another recent development is that Yipes got new digs! Now that he is fully weaned from his mother, we gave him access to a pasture that is all his own. He spends his days running around and taking in the new sights and smells—there is a lot of novel stimuli for him to explore!
