Lady’s Relaxed Foot Trimming

We’ve been getting some nice, gentle vibes from Miss Lady over the past week or so. Her caregivers have been working on trimming her feet almost daily. There are times when she doesn’t want to have that type of footwork done and, if that’s the case, she’s normally so good about having it done that it’s okay if she needs a break every once in a while. And we know it can cause discomfort, because of the condition of her feet, so we allow her to dictate how the process goes.

Recently, the work we’ve been doing is slightly more intensive than normal. It involves trimming her pads in a more advanced manner. Sometimes, when we do this type of trimming, Lady might want a day off to let her feet rest. When you trim their pads it often shifts where the pressure rests, so it can cause any elephant with bad feet to want a moment to adjust. But this week she’s been absolutely exceptional, letting us do three days of treatment in a row. She has been enjoying time in the smaller yards, taking all the time she needs to herself.

    News about Lady always makes me smile!! She does things her own way and in her own time and that is just as it should be!! I believe she knows by now that the work you do on her feet helps her in the long run, so if she is not too uncomfortable (or doesn’t have a special extra green pasture to get to on time), she will give you the extra time you need. Besides, it also means extra treats and time to socialize with her caregivers! Sweet, Sweet Ladybug!!
