Here's a snapshot of the famous 5-legged goat at the Contemporary.
(Sorry, it's kind of a crappy quality photo ) If you take the escalator to the monorail, it's on your left side as you go up, facing the monorail track. I have no clues as to why it's there -- it was obviously intentional -- so if anyone knows, please share!
Another fun bit of info, the four-sided mural in the canyon took 1,800 pieces of one square foot tiles and eighteen months to construct.

I know why it's there! Last time I was there on a tour the front desk manager told my group this story.

Her name was Mary Blair, she also designed the facade of it's a small world at Disneyland
