Ithumba Unit  July   29, 2017 Four wild bulls and one Ex Orphan visited the stockade this morning. Half Trunk was amongst them with Zurura, the Ex Orphan. The wild bulls drank water then left leaving Zurura playing with Kamok. Lemoyian and Boromoko were busy play fighting, Boromoko was using his tusks. The orphans then walked to the bush for browsing.
In the bush they were all busy browsing. Kithaka had a scratch on a tree. The group then headed to the mud bath for their milk.

It was fun in the mud bath with wild bulls, Ex Orphans and orphans all interacting with each other. Yatta and Sidai were on the other side guarding Yetu and Chaimu. Yatta was still nursing even though she is pregnant for the second time. Galana and Kinna were also nursing Kama and Gawa. Sunyei was resting under the shade of a tree. The orphans then left for the bush to browse.
In the bush the orphans were busy browsing despite it being so dry. Later on Enkikwe led the group back home for their milk.

Back at the stockade, Wendi, Yatta and Galana were present with their babies and some wild bulls. They came to drink water then left for the bush.
