Maia has found a new favorite place for morning naps, and it’s the mud wallow in yard one. Recently, in the mornings, the team arrives at the barn to sometimes find Maia sleeping in the mud wallow.
Matheus, who is a (somewhat) new caregiver, was the first one to discover her pre-breakfast ritual. He arrived in the morning to see her in the wallow, lying down, asleep. Matheus started working here a little over a month ago and is an excellent addition to the caregiving team.
Since Maia has been frequenting the wallow near the barn recently, we are doing her health check-ins at the barn and throwing in a little maintenance footwork as well.
The other day, after she left the barn, she laid back down in the mud wallow for a post-care nap. We heard a strange sound a little bit later and looked over to discover the sound was Maia. She was still resting but had noisily flipped herself over to the other side like a pancake.
She never fails to bring a smile to our faces.
