Darleene Barrientos Authorities are on the lookout for anyone in possession of 10- to 12-inch locks of horse hair after a few animals at a local camp got unexpected haircuts this week.

She told an officer she believed someone cut the horses' tails to use the hair for western accessories or key chains.

Josh Goldstein BURBANK -- For those who make a living recreating scenes of panic, excitement and danger for television and film, this was just too good for fiction. It was just after 8 a.m. Saturday when about 35 adult horses broke loose from a corral thanks to an unlatched fence at Circle K Stables near the intersection of Valley Heart Drive and Mariposa Street. Giddy in their newfound freedom, the horses galloped and trotted through the streets of Burbank, and some kept going to Glendale and Eagle Rock, police said.

Bridle trails and horses have been an important part of life for residents of La Cañada Flintridge since it was first subdivided in the 1920s. Over the years, many residents have kept horses on their properties and the Karig family, who bought a place on Woodleigh Lane in 1950 for $45,000, was no exception. The house itself was a small ranch house built in 1937, but the draw was the enormous backyard with lots of space and access to the riding trails for the four Karig children, explained Mary Karig Durso.

Glendale's leading figure, L.C. Brand, was short, stocky and, according to those who knew him, so self-conscious about his height that he wore a tall, broad-rimmed hat to create an illusion of height. He greeted guests while seated whenever he could. According to a profile of Brand written in 1992 by a relative, Judy Brand, some felt he suffered from a "Bantam Rooster" complex and that he deliberately intimidated people. One of his employees, Gilbert Budwig, described his boss this way: "He was short, broad-barreled and skinny-legged and he looked awful hard-boiled.

Hundreds of equine enthusiasts got an early look Sunday at the 2009 team of horses set to march in January’s Tournament of Roses Parade. Equestfest, at the Los Angeles Equestrian Center in Burbank, allowed many to catch a sneak peek of the horse teams slated to march down Colorado Boulevard on New Year’s Day during the annual parade. “This is great for him,” Giovanni Arevalo said of his 17-month-old son. While his son stared at the Long Beach Mounted Police squad, sitting atop Grand palomino horses, Arevalo, 28, also reveled at the chance to see the fanciful assortment of equines for himself.

Silver Ray is a shadow of his former self. Skinny, his hips stick out and his back caves in because there's not enough flesh to fill him out. He has the equivalent of horse dandruff, and his tongue hangs out of his mouth because his front teeth are missing - a byproduct of harmful acts horses often carry out to curb anxiety or extreme boredom. It's hard to reconcile the image he presents today with that of a thoroughbred that took top places at the Del Mar, Santa Anita and Hollywood Park race tracks in the early 1990s.

Displaying amazing animal-human interactions, Cavalia presents its awe-inspiring originality under a multispired tent at the juncture of the Golden State Freeway and the Burbank Boulevard overpass. It would be grossly understating to summarize this one-of-a-kind experience as merely a hybrid of a traditional circus and a Cirque du Soleil production, although there are elements of both on display. Artistic/show director Normand Latourelle and his cast have instead crafted a historical tribute to the millennia-old relationship between mankind and horses.

Silver Ray's life is turning around. When the former race horse that won hundreds of thousands of dollars on the track but sold for just $30 at an auction showed up at a horse rescue in Glendale last month , he was skinny and weak. His hip bones jutted out and his back caved in, his tongue flopped out because he was missing his front teeth. After a few weeks at Polo Pony Rescue in the Riverside-Rancho neighborhood, his butt got fatter and his future brightened. In September, he is set to move to a coveted "retirement home" in Kentucky for thoroughbreds like him called Old Friends.

It may be too obvious an intro, but filmmaker Todd Solondz - whose new film “Dark Horse” opens next week - could himself be considered a dark horse. His films have a strong following at festivals and in art houses, but they are too honest, too dark, and too bitterly funny to fit any major studio's notion of “commercial.” Most of all, they are relentlessly unsentimental - which doesn't mean they're not emotionally engaging. He first attracted attention with “Welcome to the Dollhouse” (1995)

Up in the Crescenta Valley, residents often see signs referring to Dunsmore, as in canyon, avenue, park, elementary school and even as in sediment debris basin. But who was the person behind all those signs? Jo Anne Sadler, the valley's resident historian, decided to find out. The first thing she found was that his name has many spellings. She's seen it as Dunsmoor, Dunsmore and Dunsmuir. She says the correct spelling was Dunsmoor. “While the Dunsmoor family only lived in the valley for a few years, they left their mark," she wrote in the Crescenta Valley Historical Society's newsletter, the Ledger, published in March 2011.

“Oh my goodness.” That's the first thing Mara Baygulova said 13 years ago when she laid eyes on a donkey-zebra hybrid - called “zonkeys” or “zedonks” - in Shadow Hills. She had to have the rare equine. Lucky for her, the donkey dealer had no idea what he had on his hands, Baygulova said, and she ended up getting for free what could have cost thousands of dollars. “He didn't know her value,” she said. Baygulova grew up with a donkey named Mona Lisa and had promised her son, Andreas, a donkey just like hers.
