Elephant Nursery 2010

3 November 2010  

In the midst of disaster a miracle, a baby girl was born to Pang Phootson, about 4am this morning 3rd November 2010. Named SaiChon she is a healthy and strong baby girl. Lucky she is so strong as due to the floods Phootson had to be evacuated to an area about 2 kilometres away. Not being the most ideal place for a new baby they had to come back to the Kraal where the other mums and babies are temporarily staying. Because of the road being closed to flooding, Phootson and her baby had to walk back to the Royal Elephant Kraal the long way, so five kilometres and three hours later, Phootson and SaiChon finally arrived at the Kraal. Had to post alot of photos this time as it was quite the adventure!!!!!!!!!!! An extra special event to celebrate!!!

 

 this is one cute girl, a pitstop on the way                                                                     start walking again

                

this road was between flooded paddy fields                                                         It was amazing how stable Saichon was and only a few hours old!!!   

       

SaiChon is special                                                                                                           She had quite the entourage

         

Phootson set quite the pace and Saichon certainly kept up                           It was amazing how unfazed both were by the cars and trucks going past        

      

Everyone walked and walked                                                                                 until another pitstop

     

Time to feed                                                                                                                 time to enjoy

                    

time to rest                                                                                                         time to pose for photos

         

have some water                                                                                                               before continuing the momentous journey home

          

and on the way our special monk came to help everyone on the way, he gave money and amulets for good fortune

     

and even food parcels for the trusty mahouts.                                                                       I am sure Saichon was appreciative

  

Plenty of snacking on the way                                                                                         and finally home!

  

At the Kraal, water first                                                                                                        And Saichon looks happy

 

In the Kraal and all is well !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

ITS A BOY!!!!!   Nampet seemed to be pregnant forever! Finally she has given birth to a gorgeous baby boy at 2.30am. She was very excited after the birth and is now being the model mum. Nampet and son have been moved to the nursery so she can get pointers from the other mums on what is in store.

 

Boss, (pictured above on the right, son of Pi Om and Pi Lek) was most pleased as he has just returned from the UK after successfully finishing his masters degree in International Tourism so obviously Nampet was waiting for his return to congratulate him with a new born, the best reward!!!

Wandek had her third baby this morning at 5am. A beautiful baby girl. She is very strong and drinking well. Everyone is happy.

 

    

Princess MC Rangsinoppodal Ukol took time to come and see the baby in the afternoon. She has bestowed the name La Awn meaning "young one"
