Just a quick check-in with Miss Lady Bug, since she didn’t appear in the live feed the other day. Volume up to hear the beautiful birds in the background as she lazily eats a watermelon.
Lady is in Yard 2, close to the barn after finishing her foot soaks and treatment this morning. Her back feet are good, but her front right is having an issue with the pad. This comes from her years before sanctuary, where there was no care or trimming and overgrown layers trapped feces and debris over the years. Because of this, and to take some pressure off of the pad, those front nails are left longer than you would trim if you were trimming simply for aesthetics. And while they don’t look as pretty as Maia’s, it aids significantly in her comfort and ability for that area to heal.
The wet spot on her face is from cleaning an old abscess she arrived with. It had remained untreated for years due to a misunderstanding that it was ‘normal’ drainage. This unfortunately means it will also flare up on and off for years as it heals. We clean and medicate it regularly, although there isn’t any frequent drainage. And she’s a total peach with all of her treatments.

My God. LOOK at this place. It is paradise.
Living there, it might be easy to forget… but it is paradise. Paradise. You have made heaven on earth.

Scott, I came here while you were working to get Bambi ready for the trip. I loved your rambles than, and I will always welcome them.
Would you consider filming one of the treatment sessions?
Sara saysMarch 29, 2021 at 4:54 pm
Lady is okay with being filmed sometimes, but is generally not comfortable if we don’t focus completely on her during her treatments.
John saysMarch 29, 2021 at 1:12 pm
Sometimes it’s hard to get a good gauge of how big these wonderful creatures are. How tall is Lady?
Sara saysMarch 29, 2021 at 5:41 pm
To be honest, we’ve never measured her height. She is tiny, as far as elephants go – definitely under eight feet.
Sue saysMarch 29, 2021 at 1:21 pm
Thank you for this treat! It has made my day getting to watch our Lovely LadyBug enjoy her watermelon! She looks so content ❤️?❤️ . And Scott, you can ramble anytime! We get a bunch of extra little tidbits on our Girls and Sanctuary whenever you do! Love it ❤️?❤️

Scott, I think I speak for lots of us who hang on your very word & so miss it when we don’t hear your voice sweet talking the girls or educating the rest of us. Also just a great clip of Lady, what a Love bug.
Bella saysMarch 29, 2021 at 2:14 pm
Scott, you are sharing this beautiful world with us. And while it may seem like rambling to some people, to me it feels like we’re standing together and you’re sharing. I love you talking. You’re like this favorite friend who is so interesting.

Thank you, Scott, for being there, as well thanks to the whole fabulous team! This is so wonderful, like you are not only giving beautiful sweet Lady and the other ladies, but us as well, bringing us back to a sense of childhood when we first saw and smelled the green, and heard the birdsong!!!

A symphony of tweets and chirps. A snack of a juicy watermelon. Peace and tranquility, all’s right with the world. Also, the ramblings are appreciated. It’s so obvious that Scott is in awe of these incredible beings that it’s easy to get jumbled up. Bravo!
Wim saysMarch 30, 2021 at 2:48 am
