Ithumba Unit  October   25, 2017 The weather this morning was cloudy and chilly following light showers received over night. This is an indication that the rainy season is on its way! After feeding on lucerne, Laragai, who at one time had left to be in the wild with her friends, but then later opted to return to the stockade, led the way to the browsing field. The no-nonsense girl who is feared by the boys because of her harshness, only has respect for Shukuru and Garzi. Laragai considers herself a grown-up and likes her privacy. She feeds a short distance away from her friends most of the time. She came across some rain water that had collected on a rock which she enjoyed drinking from before browsing again. Ukame briefly dusted herself with soil as the tuskless Lemoyian spent time trying to reach leaves high in the trees. Murka, Naisula and Kitirua joined the orphans out in the bush. Barsilinga briefly engaged Naisula in a play fight but Barsilinga bowed out when the going got tough for him. Six bulls attended mud bath and were calm enough to allow the orphans to share water with them.
