Somewhere to share my thoughts, memories and news of the greatest form of entertainment.
Do you know how many elephants Amadeo had in that time ? Now he has 2 and Adriana got 1 ! Thomas
I know Amadeo had five elephants around that time, as there were 2 at Yarmouth and 3 at Blackpool in 1987, but not sure if there were more?
The elephant acts Amadeo supplied for Peter Jay shows were as follows:Hippodrome 1985 – 2 Indian Elephants presented by Alex Larenty.Blackpool Tower 1986 - 2 Indian Elephants, presented by Alex Larenty.Blackpool Tower Circus – 1987 3 Indian Elephants, presented by Amadeo and Adriana Folco.Hippodrome 1987 – 2 Indian Elephants presented by Carlos Mcmanus.Hippodrome 1988 – 4 Indian Elephants (2 groups combined) – presented by Amadeo Folco and family.Blackpool Tower Circus 1988 – 3 African Elephants presented by Mario Hani.Blackpool Tower Circus 1989 – 3 elephants (same group as 1987).Hippodrome 1989 – 1 Indian Elephant (Sharon) and Pony, presented by David Hibling.Superdome Circus 1995 – 3 Indian Elephants, Julina, Sharon and Jenny , presented by Amadeo Folco and family.
Thank you very much for al this information ! I saw his daughter Sharon working with an African elephant in 2005 at the Great Russian Circus of the Smitt family but I don't think she is still working with that elephant. The elephant was called Ludi I think, not sure ! Thomas
Just got more information the elephant called Lupni and she worked also with him in "Circus No Name" in Denmark in 2006 !Thomas
Thanks for that info Thomas, any idea what happened to the other Africans? Amadeo had quite a few horses at Blackppol in 1995, whch were not in the show. I think Adriana did the courier with them, but this was not in the programme.
He still has 2 african elephants I think and the elephants he is now working with are Sharon and Julina. He also still owns some horses I now he has a liberty act with 6 white horses and one with friesian horses. Thomas
The horses he had at Blackpool were Lippizaners and Fresians, so they must be a good age now, if they are the same animalsGary
