I have a dream to ride a classic carousel before I die. Not one of the cheesy bright colored carnival ones. The beautiful, gilded silver and gold with mirrors kind. done! In City Park, in New Orleans, with my daughters.

Menagerie carousels feature other animals in addition to the horses. The one at Golden Gate Park has a dog, cat, sea dragon, lion, tiger, deer, camel, zebra, giraffe, goat, pig, toad, ostrich, stork, and rooster. (© Aaron Shepard, via carousels.org)

My favorite horse from the Jantzen Beach Carousel... I really hope they bring it back someday. Liam was too scared to ride on it when we were there!
