Born in Surin (East of Thailand), Wan Dee was separated from her mom at a young age. While seeking jobs, her owners would travel from the East to the South of Thailand where she would eventually end up. For the next 12 years, Wan Dee was put to work in various riding camps around the island. It was also during this time that she conceived Meena (through breeding).
Wan Dee was rescued in 2016 along side her baby. The one thing that strikes us the most about Wan Dee is her patience as a mom. Wan Dee’s ability to give her daughter space to explore while keeping a nice safe distance really astounds us in her mothering abilities.
At the sanctuary, Wan Dee spends her time exploring the grounds with her daughter Meena.
