THE NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC MAGAZINE THE VILLAGE BLACKSMITH WORKS WELL CLEAR OF THE "DANGER ZONE" This method of roping a horse to a stock for shoeing leaves considerable leeway for the animal to kick and struggle; ultimately it is bested and sprawls exhausted in the harness. The rocky trails and icy passes of the Tekes Valley require well-shod horses. SAYJAN'S PET CAMEL, THE VILLAGE MASCOT, HOLDS UP ITS HEAD FOR A SCRATCHING In Syria, Egypt, and elsewhere in Africa the dromedary, or single-humped camel, is common. Central Asians use the Bactrian, or two-humped variety, because it is able to withstand rigorous winters.
