HEA in the Equine World


Picture of the zonkey and mother are pictured here:


One-half donkey + one-half zebra = A HEA  and one cute little zonkey!

The story of the zonkey in Florence, Italy says, “The story of Ippo’s birth reads like the equine equivalent of a romance novel. ” ABC News

The picture of the zonkey caught my attention first, but as a writer of romance novels, the story really caught my eye. I’ve used real romances between wolves in my wolf-shifter stories. Will there be a zonkey shifter in the future? Probably not, but still, I love it.

The male zebra was rescued from a failing zoo. So you see, already you have the story: hero’s world turns upside down.

The female donkey was in the exhibit next to his. She is an endangered animal species. So our heroine is also rare and the future of her kind is uncertain.

Perfect conflict.

And they fell in love.

He actually climbed the fence between their exhibits to court her.

And baby Ippo was the result of their union.


And that’s what I love. HEA

Happy Saturday!!!

Back to writing my own!
