Why not an elephant, Sherry, and with the hot air balloon he even gets to take the weight off his feet. Fantastic and fun, my friend.

How cool!
I collect elephants, so I really, really like your idea to steampunk one since I really, really like THAT, too! I can see this as an illustration in a children's book. so much FUN!
