In the last few weeks, Lady has created a bit of a personal migration pattern, moving fairly regularly between Yards 1 and 5. She will spend a day or two at the barn, then wander back and spend another day back in her favorite distant grazing spots. The next morning she will likely make her way back down to the barn again.
Last week, Lady had already begun her walk back to the barn, but we didn’t know that yet and were looking around for any sign of her. Finally, she peeked her head out and we saw that she had positioned herself on a little island located in the middle of the creeks – just a small elevated spot between three of the creek beds. Once she knew we were around, she walked toward us for foot treatments and the treats that come along with them. Afterward, she wandered back to her space in Yard 5 for the afternoon.
During her time near the barn, Lady has been much more observant of the other girls lately. Her curiosity appears to be increasing and she has been moving slightly closer to them – so we will watch how that continues to evolve. Perhaps she is spending more time near the others, then needs to wander to a more remote spot to regroup and recharge. Only Lady knows. Regardless, she seems pleased to be able to dictate her time, movement, and degree of social interaction at an easy rate of speed.
