The Zumbug is a purple zebra piñata. Most of its body is covered in dark purple stripes covering a light purple body, similar to a zebra's black and white stripes.
Proving that hunches can pay off, the Zumbug is born from that extra bit of black and white in a Horstachio's diet. Given long grass, a freedom to roam provided that manes are behind bars and no other equine Piñatas to butt heads with, it'll fit in fine.
