Mon 30 – An elephant’s new shoes – Elephant Stay – Day 2

BronwenWeeGo.jpgJoe from Aussie Dog toys has come to ElephantStay to fit some elephant shoes.  Odd you might think…but elephants need their feet protected too.  The slight complication is the elephant whose shoes need to be fitted is in musk and it’s usually a dangerous time to be around an elephant.

But they get all 4 shoes on and take him for a test run.  Joe looks pretty happy and we get some pics with the big male in his shoes stanging on his hind legs.

Joe’s also bought a big ball for the elephants to play soccer with…unfortunatly we didn’t get to see them play with it .  He’s also bought a hammock for Michelle’s monkey and a frisbie for Buddy the dog (much bigger than my buddy).

Joe and his elephant shoes make to the front page of the paper the next morning which is pretty cool.
