Weird Vintage Untitled Document

In 1898, noted Kensington horsetrainer Mr. Hardy was hired by Leopold de Rothschild after a bet was made regarding Hardy’s ability to train any horse.   If Hardy could train a team of zebras to pull a coach through London, Rothschild would win the bet.  

After much trouble, the zebras were obtained, and Hardy agreed to help out.  After two years of hard work, in 1900, Hardy informed Rothschild that his task was completed and that the team were ready for the road.

At six o’clock one morning, a strange sight was seen in London when, for the first time, a team of zebras were seen pulling a coach through London!  (via Shopkins-Fossick)
