Voi Unit  February   27, 2014 The orphans visited the mud hole at noon. They were visited by the ex-orphans who had also come in to cool off. Afterwards Lesanju and Kihari went to dust bathe on the red soil hill and had a good time together as young Kihari learnt new ways of rolling and dust bathing. Kenia, Rombo, Kivuko and Ishaq B entertained the other orphans with their marvellous wallowing techniques. This attracted Taveta and Laikipia who stopped what they were doing to watch the four friends wallow. Ishaq B and Rombo moved away to leave Kenia and Kivuko enough space to continue wallowing. Later on Rombo, who is the king of the mud hole, was left alone giving him all the space he needed to roll, splash, kick and spray mud all over the place. Even Laikipia and Thoma, who were about to leave, had to stop and admire him. Rombo then climbed out and up the red soil hill, rolling on the warm earth before joining his friends in the bush and finding a log to scratch his itchy butt on.
