For the 2008 tour, Will Davenport presented his three elephants Tina, Jewel & Queenie on Circus Vasquez.
In the 2009 season, Will Davenport presented elephants on the main unit Hamid Circus, owned by himself. He displayed a three act with Boo, Tina & Jewel. Elephant rides were offered for $8/person before/after the show and during intermission, worked by all three elephants.
Boo started with Roy Bible, then to Red Lunsford & Cliff Monnett; sold to Gopher in 1978 I think it was.
I have heard Boo came originally from the Portland Zoo. Then to the Chicago Zoo. Then purchased by a family in Newcastle IN. who I cannot remember the name of. They owned some rides and a unit of Rodeo Equip.This family had her for sometime as a pet. Later the Lunsfords (Red, I could be way off on spelling) while framing a show on school busses, was offered use of the elephant. He is said to have put some behaviors...oh sorry...tricks on her. They eventually purchased her, then later sold the elephant to Gopher, via Bill Swain. This is mostly hear say, but a lot was confirmed by a visit from the man who owned her before Lunsford, in New Castle, while I was with Boo in 05, He said she looked great for 63.
