My boyfriend sent me this link from BBC news about research into why zebras may have stripes. It was an interesting article so I thought I would share it with you. They say it is to do with the colours of equids flies prefer to bite. Apparently darker horses are more attractive to flies, I think this sounds right because all of the horses I know with sweet itch are black!
