We were going to try to do another live video last night, but plans mean nothing here. 😉 Mara continued to do very well throughout the day yesterday, taking time to explore and graze and graze and graze. She is incredibly tactile and touches everything. Even when she collects grass, she passes over it with her trunk a few times first. She’s lovely.
It’s apparent that she is insecure about many things, but we expect that to change as she discovers the new world around her and builds confidence with each new exploration and choice.
None of the other girls came by yards 1-3 today. Rana was visible from the barn at breakfast, but at dinner was at the very back of 5. Maia was still across the creek in 5. Lady was the closest, funnily enough, but still not too near. We will see where everyone decides to be at breakfast tomorrow.
Around 10 pm tonight, we will go down to check on Mara, to refresh some of her food if she is in the barn, lay eyes on her, and make all seems well. She has access to the barn and yards 1, 2, and 3 tonight, so she can choose where she spends her time.
She’s doing really well, and we all get to fall in love with her together. ❤️
Video is Mara at the itchy scratchy tree, as you can see by the mud-covered bark, it is a favorite of all of the girls. One of the captive issues Mara has is very dry skin with layers of dead skin. Water, mud, and wonderful trees will work wonders for that.
