Patricia Jamison. Another kind lady that helped me during my circus days. I always wanted to thank her for her kindness but lost track of her. If your still out there Pat, Thanks. I never forgot how kind you were to me when I needed it.

I am currently working four zebras, and I also have a leopard in another act (along with lions and tigers). Considering the nature of these critters I have, I am really impressed with this pic. This was the Cuneo act, wasn't it? Part of the leopard/white wolf (white German Shepards) act? How long was this act on the road?

I think the best and hardest part of this trick is keeping the leopard from ripping the plume of the zebra's head then becoming possessive over it.

Dead on, Darryl. Castle let my predecessor put carpet on the lion's barrel. It's another story about how the lion was driven nuts, but in Grand Rapids, I let him in to see if there was anything left of his mind, and he immediately went for the barrel. He obsessed on the carpet and tore it off, fiercely possessive. It would have been suicide to try to drive him out. I let him tire of the carpet and find his own way out, and he trotted down the tunnel to retirement.

Heard from Patricia. See what happens when you NAG, NAG, NAG. on these web sites? Three years but I found her. All is well.

All is not well. Some people hold a grudge forever. Its a woman scorned sort of thing.
