I love the different animals and always wanted to find an interesting one to ride.

A ferocious lion.
Even better, a giraffe.

If you don't want to ride the merry go round, you can always eat it.
Or just put it on the top of the cake.

Even if I can't ride these horses, they are useful for drinking, ringing and decorating.
I had such a hard time deciding which of my giraffes to choose today that I decided to post both of them.
Giraffe #87 is part of a collection my father gave me. He has the zebra and there are also a lion, tiger and elephant.
Giraffe #88 is an ornament. When he's not hanging on a Christmas tree, he hangs around the house.
