A little Zoo Crew update for you!
Maddy has really been enjoying her
volunteer gig at the zoo this summer!
Most of the time, that is!
|Looks cute and sweet -- but this horse is one of the biters!|
Last Monday, however, a horse (one of the naughty small horses)
bit her on the inside of her arm!
While it didn't totally break the skin, it left scratches
and a big bruise.
Then she worked on Wild Wednesday evening
when the zoo is open until 8 pm.
One horse was DONE and ready to head back to the
stalls when about 5 kids came up and needed rides.
Since the other two horses had already left, Scout (the horse)
was stuck doing all the rides.
Scout was not happy about that.
To show how unhappy he was, he tried to rub Maddy
off on a fence as she led him around on the horse ride
resulting in a huge scrape and sliver on the inside
of her other arm!
Battle scars from the zoo!
She's still enjoying being a part of zoo crew, though it's winding down with
school starting soon. She has weekend assignments
until the zoo closes in October.
She is definitely watching out for the horses!
Her favorite assignment is the butterfly pavilion -
who doesn't love butterflies! :)
Bonus -- it's right next to the most adorable Wallaby families!
We don't have a huge and fancy zoo like Omaha's, but
we do love our children's zoo!
