Ithumba Unit  May   31, 2017 Garzi left the stockade with a branch in his mouth that he continued to feed on while enjoying scratching on the nearby rocks. Oltaiyoni had a brief chat with Olsekki as Enkikwe tried to pull some grass from Sirimon's mouth. The orphans settled to browse in the Kanziku area until it was time for their next milk bottle at the mud bath. Barsilinga, Lemoyian, Shukuru, Sirimon, Siangiki, Vuria and Oltaiyoni really enjoyed the mud bath at length. Sokotei engaged Bomani in a strength testing exercise as Olsekki played with Garzi. Sokotei decided to take a break to roll on the ground but as soon as he went down on his knees Bomani was quick to throw himself on top of him. Olsekki came to Sokoteiís and both of them ganged up to fight Bomani. After mud bath, Lemoyian engaged Kithaka in a pushing game that lasted unil Lemoyian surrendered. Shortly after the orphans returned back to the browsing field, the Ex orphans in the company of eight wild bulls reported. Mutara and Chaimuís groups were not there and we are still hopeful our new arrivals Kelelari, Dupotto and Karisa are with them. The Ex Orphans left two hours later after enough wallowing.

Playful Bomani and Sokotei
