There is another facet on top of the family structure. Zebra have a long history of being hunted for food by early humans, where horses do not.
As a result Zebra legit perceive humans as a predator no different than they see lions or hyena. Horses never saw humans as a predator species.

I'd want to go a level deeper- what is the larger reason that there so few domesticable animals in the Western Hemisphere and yet SO MANY in the East? The West ostensibly had enough analogues- bison instead of aurochs, bighorn sheep instead of mouflon, turkeys instead of chicken, llamas instead of donkeys, and first North Americans already had dogs- what's the deeper reason that almost all of the species in the Americas failed these criteria?

Minor correction: Domestic Cats actually can be incredibly social though. Not all animals are social or antisocial: their lifestyle depends on food abundance. Another example. Example: spiders that have species where there are both solitary and colony building individuals.

I need to make an added distinction to your description of cats. "A cat is a tiny tiger that lives in your house" because it's convenient for him. I'm fairly certain that cats domesticated themselves (or domesticates us) to get easier access to food.

The hippie comment stirred something in me:
-> those domesticated plants are monocultures that don't replenish the soil and are susceptible to disease and pests, and require pesticides to stay alive which actively destroys biodiversity even more.
So when hippies say "back to nature" they very much know that what they mean is leaving that behind for other permaculture methods based on local biodiversity.

Also to note the herds of domesticated animals now being fed food we can eat, because society has a preference for the animal at this point. Shipping soy to feed cows to eat, is just as inefficient as domesticating tigers to eat them.

Complete bullshit. Domestication is the result of selectively breeding individuals with an underdeveloped neural crest because this causes neoteny which makes them easier to handle but reduces sensory, physical and mental fitness. This idiotic video also assumes people chose species that were already "friendly". They were NOT until they were bred that way since this trait would kill them in the wild. The first domesticated horse was the Przewalski(!) but the culture responsible for that made a very stupid mistake in land management and perished. Also, zebras live in tight knit family groups and mares will adopt the foals of their relatives, zebra stallions will protect their foals at all cost. All large herbivores in Africa must gather in huge herds during mass migrations for protection but zebras are NOT antelopes who don't really bond with each other. Zebras have been tamed countless times but aren't bred for tameness but rather for maintaining the population and hence retain a strong fight or flight response.

Theres actually evidence that suggest people didnt actively try to domesticate animals, but worshiped cool looking animals they thought might be mystical. Then these animals became so plentiful and common that eventually over generations peeps were like "...they ain't that special" and then bred them to be useful

Then why did we use hunting birds and hunting dogs? it's cuz they didn't take too much work too feed and helped us a lot, also it's why we have more pet cats then pet raptors.

raptors and retrievers helped with hunting other birds, while cats were pest control.
