Voi Unit  May   23, 2013 Emily’s Ex Orphans passed by the Stockades at l0 a.m., accompanied by 4 wild Bulls. Having taken water, they all headed towards the eastern side of the Hill led by Icholta who was obviously hoping to meet up with Lesanju’s Juniors. Ex Orphan Tsavo walked behind the Big Bulls and Laikipia made sure he was sheltered from them by Emily. Meanwhile the Juniors remained at the top of the Hill, coming down to wallow led by Wasessa only at 2.30 p.m. All were enjoying a wallow at the Big Waterhole when they were startled by the sudden appearance of Icholta, who loves the Juniors, and who had left Emily’s group to join them. Icholta reassured them with a soft friendly rumble, after which Kivuko, Rombo and Dabassa made space for the Big Girl and Dabassa chose a piece of wood with which to play in the water. Mzima tried to engaged Icholta in a Pushing Match, but found himself pushed clear of the pool. Upon finding the drinking bins empty which they themselves had drained, Wasessa, Dabassa and Taveta began kicking the bins around. All then resumed feeding for the rest of the afternoon, Icholta eventually leaving the Juniors to return to Emily’s unit.
