Like the horse, the eyes reveal the soul. Sure, he could use a bath & some grooming, but would that make him/her more worthy of our respect? I doubt he smells very good except to another camel.?? Reply Richard Alton says: August 31, 2017 at 11:21 am Beauty’s in the eye of the beholder, Linda. I wouldn’t call him/her beautiful – expressive, striking, but not beautiful. With that thick, ungroomed coat, I’m sure he had a rich smell. Reply Maria Christou says: August 30, 2017 at 10:45 am I don’t care who designed him – what he needs is a good brush-up. Reply Richard Alton says: August 30, 2017 at 2:04 pm I agree, Maria – but I was afraid to challenge him. Reply Eliot Taylor says: August 30, 2017 at 10:43 am If the committee had voted to put the 2 humps of the Bactrian Camel side by side tranversally they could have shortened the foot base of the camel by a couple of feet, thus improving parking at the oasis? Reply Richard Alton says: August 30, 2017 at 2:03 pm But would that have made the camel more comfortable to ride on, Eliot? I don’t think so.
