Flossey is living a wonderful life on a beautiful farm in Millbrook, Ontario. It's what is knows an "ethical farm" where cows have space to roam and graze instead of being kept indoors for most of their lives. Flossey's farm has vast expanses of lush, green grass, rolling hills, ponds full of fresh water, and forested areas for shade. This is life as it should be for these gentle creatures. Dave is a farm hand who often helps out with some of the chores and animal care. He decided to take a break on this warm, summer day and he took a seat on the hill overlooking the pasture.

This is the baby Elephant Otto from the Munich Tierpark Hellabrunn. He loves nothing more than to cuddle with his dad, a gorgeous bull elephant with huge tusks. Dad Gajendra is temporarily separated, most likely because he's in Musth (must), meaning his Testosterone levels can be more than 60 times higher than in the same elephant at other times which could make him highly aggressive, but he's certainly not aggressive with his son Otto today as he's being very affectionate. The little baby elephant cuddles dad's tusks. Throwing his little trunk around it. Dad's big trunk wrapped around his son's head and touches the rest of him. The elephant calf runs towards the big tire has a little play. In the background you hear mother Temi slapping her ears against a metal door. It's time to go outside. When the little one finishes with the tire he runs back to dad and cuddles into his Dad's big tusks again. Just look at him run, just so cute. He runs towards the tire again but makes a quick turn to go to dad. When dad shows his leg, the baby does the same and lifts us his little leg and puts it on dad's leg. Otto was born on the 11th of November 2020 during the lockdown of the covid19 pandemic. His mum is called Temi and his dad is called Gajendra. He's a little cutie, very playful and loves learning from the adults.
