During the dry season when there is less fresh grass to eat, Lady will often meet her caregiver at the fence for breakfast. Now that the rain has made the grass so fresh and abundant, Lady isn’t as interested in the food we have to offer as she is in what’s all around her. It is wonderful to see that she is relying more on nature for her meals than she is on the humans.
On a recent meal “delivery,” Lady was deep in the bushes and came out for a moment when Scott stopped by. She looked very happy in her surroundings, as she has seemed to be lately, and so she decided to keep exploring. She ventured into areas she hasn’t been in a while, showing even more interest in wandering. It’s actually quite impressive that she has been able to get to some of the more challenging areas of the habitat. For an elephant with such compromised feet, Lady has really been making the best of the season.
The rain brings with it cooler temperatures, which is probably encouraging her excitement. The weather generally promotes some migrations in all of the girls, but Lady doesn’t need too much encouragement to graze and look for the newest grasses around. We see it as a positive that she is venturing out into different corners of the habitat more.

I’m so glad this is a sign of less painful feet, allowing for a happier elephant. She looks really good.

She does still get medicine for them, but the walking seems to helping a bit – and we’ll always take that!

Lady really has made the sanctuary hers on her own terms. The lessons she is teaching us about the process of trust!

Lady is so courageous and determined to enjoy her freedom. It’s a joy to read how she ventures out to enjoy fresh lush grass. Her confidence is slowly building, each step is another goal for her
