Grazing

A romantic greeting card featuring a zebra grazing, and a speech bubble with the text ‘Still Grazing After All These Years’.

It is, of course, a play on the words ‘still crazy after all these years’ and romantically expressing that the sender is still crazy in love with the intended recipient.

Until I went to South Africa and saw zebra grazing close up, I could not have told you how they eat. Let me explain with the example of cattle and sheep.

Cattle twist their tongues around grass and pull and tear it to eat it. Sheep, on the other hand, simply nibble grass with their teeth. Actually, they only have teeth in their lower jaw. They have a hard pad in their upper palette and they eat by cutting the grass with their teeth against that pad.

With that ability, sheep will nibble grass to a fine sward. That means is that whilst sheep can eat where cattle have grazed, cattle can’t eat the grass where sheep have been.

At least they cannot eat until the grass grows long enough again for them to wrap their tongues around.

Did you know that that is why cattle ranchers in the Old West in the USA saw the sheep ranchers as enemies, robbing their cattle of land upon which to graze.

Zebras Graze

To get back to zebra, I now know first hand that they have teeth and cut the grass when they graze. That is not unexpected given that zebra and horses are closely related.
