John Strong had a one ring Circus on the west coast for years. Known as the Big John Strong Show. His son still has a side show out of Texas. Nina is spelled Neena. There have been three of them with the one on C&B now being the last one. All were on the Big John Strong show thus the name was never changed and people didn't realize the elephant had changed. # 3 definitely went directly from John Strong to C&B but I am not sure what year to be exact. She was leased to Kelly-Miller from 1986-2007.
