We weighed the calf again today and he's now 100 kilos. That's four kilos he's put on in under a week!
This morning Thong Dee tried to have a hay breakfast in the barn. The calf stood right in the middle of her breakfast napping on his feet. Thong Dee tried to work out how to get the hay from under his feet without disturbing him. She carefully used her trunk to work her way away around him.
Joel another elephant keeper then gave Thong Dee a warm wash down with a hose in the barn. The calf thought this was a great game and tugged the hose from Joel with his little trunk.
