After her encounter with the elk bull, Jena limped back to the mare and Bard. The bull had attacked again and this time managed to do some damage by hitting her hindlegs with his antlers. After that the elk luckily got bored and trotted back to his herd, leaving Jena alone. Jena was left with few scratches on her right buttock and left hock.
When the mare saw Jena approaching them she tried to get up again, but failed. Bard wasn't on view, but showed up from the bushes soon enough. Jena walked to the mare and cleaned her wounds. The mare thanked her and tried to get up, but failed again, no matter how hard she tried. Since Jena was little wounded as well, she decided that she and Bard would stay with the mare for few days. Maybe she would now also finally get some information out of the mare, like who she was, and what happened to her.
