Mara and Rana were recently in Yard 2, and Lady was in Yard 3 when Scott went to feed Mara her early afternoon bonus-meal. Lady saw Scott calling Mara with a bucket of food and became very interested.
Mara was dusting and slow to walk over, so Lady arrived near the fence first. Mara made her “ERRR” noise and looked surprised when Lady approached. Scott shared a few pieces of fruit with Lady as Mara walked over. Once Scott started feeding Mara, Rana had to come over too. Rana walked around Mara to approach the fence. To Lady’s perspective, as Rana came around Mara, Rana popped out of nowhere. Startled, Lady took a few quick steps away but then turned around to remain nearby.
Lady stayed near the other two for a few hours. She ended up eating dinner further away but was back near Rana & Mara for the late-night feeding. Again, the humans were hand-feeding buckets of fruit to Mara, and Lady was intrigued. She was content to stay a bit away and eat her hay while observing the others.
