Quite a snazzy paint job

Did the Sheik of Arabee

actually ride a chariot

Anybody can be a sheik, but Bobby was a Potentate, even if his equine paint job sort of colored outside the lines...

That was Dave Hale's genuine zebra, back in the days when Bobby had Hale's camel act in Baraboo. Jimmy Hall had a great tale of Bobby attempting to add the zebra to the camel act at an evening show at CWM. Reader's Digest version: it didn't work out.
