100 mules trekked right past the doorstep of my friends Don and Marijke in Shadow Hills CA commemorating Los Angeles Aqueduct's 100th birthday on Nov. 10th, but look what I found near our digs today! Exotic ungulates! And for those who care about such matters as I do, the circus animals all appeared to be in good health, well fed, muscled even, unstressed and definitely accepting of humans. The zebras were bright-eyed and the camel came right over for his closeup... The 18 hand Percheron (a giant, now rare-ish draft horse breed) needed a bath but horse-people know you never bathe a horse until right before his show appearance, else risk a newly muddied equine. There were American flags aflutter everywhere, but the red and white tent stripes reminded me of the Rising Sun flag of Japan, a great graphic element.
