While the pond in Yard 4 has a gentle incline and is shallow along the edges, the pond in Yard 5 has one side where it gets deep very quickly. Kat and Scott were recently heading to the barn, and, along the way, they drove past the pond in Yard 5. Maia was standing up in the pond, with her head poking out. Mara and Rana were standing along the edge of the pond. Due to the steep slope, Maia’s head was level with Mara & Rana’s feet.
Kat and Scott, only catching an initial glance as they drove past, had to stop and back up to giggle at how silly it looked. It was a pretty amusing perspective – we describe Maia in many ways, but tiny is not usually one of them!
