One day, Mulita was found to be limping, one of her legs was crippled, and Escarleth’s dad wasn't sure how to approach the problem, as Mulita was so nervous and at the same time started to show a bad temper. She wouldn’t allow her leg to be touched. Don Miguel, Escarleth’s dad, remembered the bond Mulita has with his daughter and called her up for assistance. As soon as she showed up, it was like Mulita changed all of the sudden, she looked at her not as a threat nor as a predator as they usually perceive humans, but as a friend. Escarleth approached Mulita with her kind smile and started to caress her, talk to her, and putting her at ease in a short and impressive amount of time, like the best infant rider from a cowboy movie.
Mulita's attitude always changes when Escarleth is around, she feels at ease, just like we humans feel when we are with kind, motivating, and loving people. Mulita and Escarleth keep nurturing their relationship every day as Mulita takes her to class on a one hour trail from the farm of her family.
The Aguilar Zamoran family have big portions of land dedicated for cattle and agriculture, particularly for growing basic grains and also cacao beans. They own four mules and three horses, and they also have the habit of milking their cows every morning.
The family is a hard working and they are very active with our partners ADDAC to keep incorporating animal welfare. Don Miguel has acquired more knowledge on how to treat physical wounds and handicap in his animals, and with Mulita, he is now very confident to treat her... as long as Escarleth is around. Escarleth is not only growing in her education and helping her family, but she is also learning how to take care of their biggest assets, their animal - namely Mulita.
