Circo Atayde(Aguilar) Hermanos

This is a "Hagenbeck human zoo" South of the border. :) It consists of giraffe, zebra, dromedary and Bactrian camels, both white and normal colored and a Mexican. That's Jimmy Garner, grandson of Jim Garner, brother of Joseph(Yosa) who presents the liberty acts of camels and horses and bactrian and zebra.

Jimmy and Joseph's father, Gene who is Jim's son, trained exotics for Alberto Atayde for a number of years. I met him 3 years ago when I was down here, and enjoyed chatting with him. Jim, I understand is retired and living in Spain. Joseph has become pretty talented the past couple of years. Last month he was having trouble with the hind leg horse and asked me to help him correct it. After watching him practice he asked, "what am I doing wrong, Gringo?" I told him, "I am going to suggest to you something that one of the best liberty trainers in the United States told me a few year ago." Joseph said, "what is that?" I replied, "you need to take that God damn whip, and shove it up your ass." We practiced a couple of time's and the horse was walking like a champ. Joseph excited wanted to "do it one more time," but I told him that wasn't a good idea and advised against that. He said, "why not?" and I told him, "because we don't have time to fix it when it goes to shit, and it will if you "do it one more time." I haven't forgotten a thing you taught me, John.
