This morning for breakfast, all three ladies came together. Ramba in the lead, Rana in the middle, and Maia bringing up the rear. In general, at normal walking speed, Ramba is the fastest. If Maia decides she wants to be fast, that’s a different story; then she’s super fast. Rana has more of a mosey speed but has upped her game since her new friend likes to zoom around.
Everyone ate close to each other this morning. We talked to the caregivers the other day about giving them a chance to show you how amazing they are. Often people pigeon hole elephants, or fall into a comfortable assessment:’ they never do this, they always do that, they can’t do this.’
But rarely are those assumptions accurate. Maia does love food, and yes, she ‘shares’ sometimes without asking, but it’s not the end of the world if she does. Right now, building the relationship between the three girls is more important than someone taking someone else’s palm. If any of the girls receive something others could not, those are given directly, so there is no chance someone could ‘steal’ something that would be harmful.
But, as it goes, Maia was a peach. She didn’t take anything from anyone; she just enjoyed her time being around her sisters. Later on in the afternoon, they had gone their separate ways, but it was their choice, not ours.
video- their food was further down the fence line and Scott was hoping they would keep going, but as Ramba passed, she decided to stop and say hello.

It made me smile to see the three girls walking along acting like the free elephants that they now are! Thank you so much for all you do for them. It warms my soul to see them just being elephants, doing what they want with no chains, no orders, just free, free, free!

This is just wonderful, they are so quiet as they mosey along. Fab to see all three of them together like this. Poor Maia getting a bit squashed as a Ramba gave no warning she was going to stop. Lovely, three happy girls. ??????
