There was some rain last night, so the orphans emerged with exuberance, and went rushing down the hill to the feeding area. Their joy knew no bounds, as they rolled in the small puddles, and played in the mud, but they had to quench their thirst at the drums near the waterhole. Mweya initiating a sliding game on her buttocks, soon to be joined by Edie and Ndara. Mweiga was in the hub of things, enjoying the wallow. Feeding resumed in the afternoon, and as usual it was Laikipia who signalled the time to return in the evening. The little orphaned kudu, Rukinga, and Serena, the orphaned zebra enjoyed feeding around the Stockades, and then lay together to take a rest after their 9 a.m. feed.
