This morning, we caught up with Pocha and Guillermina in the barn. They are still more comfortable spending time inside, but have explored the corridor leading out to the yards. We are on elephant time now, waiting for the two girls to feel at home enough to exit when they are ready.
The two heard Bambi, Mara, and Rana trumpeting last night and were very curious. Lady has come the closest, spending time in the neighboring yard. It’s important that both elephants be allowed to make the decision to leave the barn of their own accord. That is what sanctuary is all about.
