On a recent afternoon, one of our caregivers-in-training heard some happy sounding trumpets, but couldn’t see where they were coming from. She could see Bambi and Mara, who were quiet and calm. So, she wandered over to an area where she could see the pond in Yard 5 and observed Guillermina splashing around, with her legs sticking straight up in the air. Apparently, she was having her own party.
Once Guille started getting really silly and loud, Mara, who was close to the water trough, went over to the trough and started throwing water around, getting wet, and being silly on her own. The energy seemed to be one of spunkiness and the fun vibe was spreading from one elephant to another.
