Arabs prefer horses. So camel may not be such a good animal, after all.

P.S.: I thought the camel symbol symbolized the ugly face of
Larry Wall.


For Arabians, a horse is a symbol of wealth. They don't use horses for work. Those horses are
from a military inheritance.

If you want to use a horse, then you should take the original farmer's horse, the "Brabants Boerenpaard" (no, this
isn't South African) (difficult to translate)..
