We don’t post many photos of a dry Maia, or a clean Maia, or a Maia standing up, or of Maia not in the pond. It’s not a decision that we make; it’s just because she is usually covered in mud or lying down in the pond. We love all those things about her, and we hope you do too.
But look! It’s a photo of Maia, standing up and pretty clean. She doesn’t even have (visible) food in her mouth.
Maia has a presence about her that arrives before her body does at times. We just talked today about how she often feels the most ‘elephant’ out of the girls. Like all of them, there is something very special about her.

What a beautiful comment – and worthy of Maia 🙂

I love, love hearing about Maye. There is something very, very special about her. All your girls are wonderful, But I am instantly happy and filled with laughter when I see a picture of Maya. She has a glint in her eye that is very mischievous!

Esta es Maia!? 4 x 4
Fuerte, vigorosa, poderosa, casi rústica… Disfrutando de la naturaleza salvaje en su esplendor!
Es adorable verla asi!?
Amo el vello sobre su cabeza, es muy encantador?

Like so many of us who comment, the happiest part of my day is seeing I have an email from GSE, and then I cry a little bit when I see the picture or the video attached. Everytime I say, “This is my favorite pic yet.” And then the next picture or video becomes my most favorite right away too. Here, Maia’s face seems to be saying, “I know what I’m doing, and I’m doing it right.”

And like all of them, I wish I could kiss her silly. I love her. I am grateful for the individual sequences of DNA that gave us beautiful unique elephant person who is Miss Maia.
Julie saysJune 15, 2020 at 10:38 pm
I love that, Patricia. So beautiful, and true!
Sherry saysJune 15, 2020 at 8:46 pm

Alana saysJune 15, 2020 at 11:35 pm
She seems to be a free spirit, marching to her own drum & happy to be doing it.

Beautiful Maia, you are so loved by so many…….even without food in your mouth and muddy covering!
This is a gorgeous photo, she really is a super stunner!

Just an amazing old soul. I echo the other wonderful comments about Maia. Such a beautiful girl.
