Horses. Mules. Donkey. Burros. ETA: CAMELS AND LLLAAAAAMMAAAAS, OH MY!

Didn't find a pre-existing thread.

Noticed they showed up in some post-apocalyptic builds.
US Army Special Forces are teaching their students basic horsehandling during the ROBIN SAGE exercises.
Then there was the movie inspired by true events. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/12_Strong
Most of the Nazi army during WW2 was horse-drawn.

Saw this today - Liberty class merchant ship dockside at Antwerp, probably very late in WW2.

"Twenty Llamas for Argentina's Army" sounds like a Spanish-language comedy movie concept.

I crack myself up, I really do. But you folks knew that already.

The masks are being worn, in this instance, not because of COVID but to prevent the handlers copping a mouthful of llama spit. ;)

The Llama on the right is sizing up his victim. 

It is checking range, wind speed and direction, humidity, barometric pressure.

I am giving up listing them. They all end up on the shelf of procrastination anyways.

ANZAC vs Turkish Cavalry would be good, though the Turkish Cav reportedly usually took off when they saw ANZACs coming.
