According to Ahern, Elma adores people, and stays so close to her human companions, it's easy to trip over her. She also loves spending time in the barn while it's being cleaned. "She'll bed herself down in a stall whilst a staff member mucks it out," Ahern says. "Then she'll get up and move on to the next stall when the staff member does."
Elma may be better now, but Ahern keeps a close eye on her. "Elma sleeps next to my bed so I can check on her," Ahern explains. "Unlike one of our other lambs, Fifi, who is boisterous and vocal, Elma is quiet as a mouse, and won't stir until I do."
