A circus zebra was sent to a farm to recuperate on the advice of the Veterinary surgeon.
The zebra felt happy about being released in an enclosure but soon began to feel lonely and bored.
It decided to seek company so he jumped over the fencing and trotted to the farmhouse where he saw a number of strange-looking animals.
The zebra first walked up to the chicken and said,
“Hello! I am an African zebra. Who are you?”
The chicken replied,
“Well, I am a chicken.”
Glad to know you.” said the zebra.”
Actually I am a performing zebra from a circus. I dance and do a trick which makes people clap and that makes my master happy and he takes care of me. What do you do?”
“Well, I scratch the ground, feed on grain and lay eggs which make my master happy. Glad to know you too and welcome.”
The zebra then introduced itself one by one to all other animals around the farmhouse and felt very welcome at the farm.
Then it looked around and spotted another strange animal in an enclosure nearby.
It jumped over the fencing into the enclosure and approached the animal.
“Hello, I am an African zebra; actually a performing zebra from a circus coming here for a rest. I dance and do tricks, which make people clap and that makes my master happy and he takes care of me. Who are you and what do you do?”
In a low voice, the reply came,
“I am a bull, a stud bull, and what do I do? Take off your pajamas and I show you.”
