Right in the middle of yesterday’s rainstorm, the herd headed for the moat. It’s not uncommon for them to take a dip on rainy days as their moat is actually quite warm.
Luk Chai made a beeline for the water and the big females followed him in. They had a real dunking session, rolling and submerging each other with Luk Chai climbing all over the girls. The four of them then went over to join Porntip and little Pathi Harn which were being hosed by Elephant Keeper Kat in the mud wallow. Luk Chai flopped down and let Pathi Harn clamber all over him as usual.
All the elephants seemed so energised in the rainstorm!
