Lady recently went across the creek in Yard 5, which is an area she hasn’t been in since shortly after her arrival.
During the day, she’s been spending time in the vicinity of the 5B water trough, while at night she is wandering further towards the back of the yard. We periodically see her bathing herself at the trough, looking bright-eyed and quite pleased with herself. We’ve been doing her treatment along the fence in that area. The first morning we did it there, she rumbled at least 6-7 times within the first two minutes of foot care.

Susan saysSeptember 3, 2020 at 5:34 pm
Totally grinning!!! ? Thank you again for the map, I love looking at it! ???? I was curious as to your thoughts about who will go where in the yards once Bambi arrives, or if you have to wait and decide that more as you go along? Thank you, as always, for all that you share with us. ❤️?❤️?❤️

Hi Susan, this FAQ may answer your question:
When will she meet the other elephants?
As always, we mostly leave that up to the elephant. We expect Bambi to arrive at ESB in the evening. We will unload her immediately, and she will stay in the open-air barn by herself for the night. Elephants arriving at sanctuary will usually dust first, because they feel dirty from being on the road, followed by a drink or bath, and then take a nap.
In the morning, Bambi will determine her next steps. We may have one elephant come up to the opposite side of the fence, careful not to overwhelm her. The new elephant’s experience is completely customized; everything functions on her time—no expectations, no set schedules. Because Bambi is blind in one eye, she may need a little more time to feel comfortable and confident around the other elephants, but that is okay. We will let her determine how introductions progress.

How high does the water come up in the stream in Yard 5? to Lady’s ankles? Her legs look toned, and her face so content! Thank you so much for all your work.
Kat Blais saysSeptember 8, 2020 at 7:04 pm
Right now? probably. During the rainy season, the water levels get much higher. Most of the time there are areas we can drive the four-wheeler through, but after some storms, we cannot. At least for a few hours. Lady has changed so much since we’ve known her, and it’s wonderful. We are privileged to be able to do this work. 🙂

Our precious girl is looking very upbeat. Hopefully her visits to Yard 5 mean that she is at ease and comfortable enough to do a little exploring. She seems content and safe in her little world and so good to know she rumbles during treatment! I think she understands that the humans at GSB are there to help her and she actually enjoys having her feet attended to.

Camera worth it’s weight in gold with all these sightings and behaviour s,and Lady quietly me do g her soul quietly and in her own time.
