Bambi Doesn’t Go to Mara’s Side

It seems that Mara is still coming to terms with the new herd dynamics, and the fact that it seems she is primarily responsible for how relationships are currently evolving. Recently, before breakfast, she and Rana, Maia, and Bambi were all standing at a distance from one another on one side of the pond, with Guillermina on the other side. Guillermina headed toward Mara and Rana and, even though Guille is a good girl who knows so much these days about how to approach the others, Mara still seemed to expect Bambi to come to her side and make sure all was well. 

Of course, everything was fine – but once upon a time, Bambi might have stepped in and trumpeted or made a noise to start a mini-party. Now, Bambi seems to be stepping back from her old role and stays near Maia instead. It did make for a little bit of an awkward morning, though everyone ate their food and was absolutely fine. 

Still, Mara seemed unlike her usual self during the morning. During her treatment, she was cooperative but you could tell that she was somewhat unsettled. She may have just been having an off day, as we all do at times. But Mara is definitely used to Bambi running to her at the slightest hint of unease, even if Mara wasn’t being totally loving in her own actions. So now she has to process what is occurring, learn how to navigate the new normal, and perhaps ponder her role in the entire scenario. 

P.S.: This week’s podcast introduces us to Mara and begins the story of her unique journey to sanctuary. Listen online or wherever you get your podcasts.

    Complex. As you say Guille is such a good girl for she has also lost the closer relationships she had with Maia and Bambi ?

      Guillermina is still very close with both Maia and Bambi, though she socializes with all four of the girls.
