  10. As a young guy, I worked on a ranch as a summer job between semesters at the university. The Arabian horse “assigned ” to me was old enough he figured it was not his job to cut cattle or carry a heavy lump around all day. At some point miles from his stable, he’d go on strike, forcing me to walk alongside him. One day, I noticed a biting fly (“those delta wing bastards”) on Niran the horse’s neck. I slapped and killed the fly. From that time on, Niran let me ride all day! I note camels are cousins to horses and Mahmoud probably failed to prove he had a value recognized by his camel, so… Yes! He’s “afoot” till he figures it out! I say to Mahmoud, “Know thy camel!”
