Lady Has Seen Maia, Rana and Ramba!

Lady has now seen the other girls – Maia, Ramba, and Rana.

Lady seems happy to see them at a distance, but isn’t quite ready to officially meet them. Rana, who is quickly becoming the official welcoming committee, let out some very loud (maybe too loud) trumpets when she saw Lady, who quickly walked away at the noise. There are no signs of fear, or aggression, it just seems Lady doesn’t quite know what to make of other elephants yet – which is ok.

She has had a lot of changes the past few days, so her wanting emotional and physical space to process everything is understandable. She will have as much time as she needs to become more comfortable and joining the herd can happen at her own pace. As the sanctuary is so large, there is plenty of room for Lady to have the space she needs.

Overall, Lady is doing wonderful. You can see Rana, Ramba, and Lady in this video. Maia is off doing her own thing this morning.

The video ends abruptly and cuts out a few times due to intermittent power at the barn, we appreciate your patience!

    If I had not ever seen another human since I was three years old, I am sure I would take things things VERY slowly. She will get there in her own good time, I am sure of it.

    Thank you Kat for a lovely video and explanation of what she is doing and the other girls too , its all fascinating. So much new for Lady to come to know… the story of the bush was funny, and then sad at the same time. Great to see she is slowly getting used to the new, it must be so strange to see something like this if you’ve never seen it before, because of her relative confidence at the gardens, I mistook it for confidence in general – so seeing this is teaching me a lot.

    Oh that’s okay Lady. You take your time. Rana bug was happy to see you. A bit like Tatra, the greeter. So happy the girls are there so Lady is no longer alone.

    Bless Little Lady, in her own time she will make friends with the girls. I’m sure you said once that Rana’s trumpets are very loud. She was so excited to see another new ele that she momentarily forgot she needs to hold back a little at first. I’m sure she has already recognised that. Ramba is very laid back. It would be wonderful if Lady and Maia became friends. What will be will be and all will be well. ????????
