Lam Yai (F)
Lam Yai was born in Pattani Province. Lam Yai spent the first half of her life working as a loggin elephant in different provinces in Thailand. In her 30s, Lam Yai got into an accident. She slipped and broke her leg while hauling a log down a slippery, slope in the rain.
Because of her injury, Lam Yai became of little use to her owner, who sold her to another owner. Lam Yai would spend the next 20 odd years between logging and riding places before eventually being rescued by the sanctuary at 54.
When in the presence of Lam Yi, one can feel her quiet energy.
