Ithumba Unit  August   19, 2017 Only one wild bull was drinking water at the stockade water trough when the juniors were let out early this morning. Shortly later Olare’s group and Yatta’s group showed up and joined the juniors to feed on lucerne. When the orphans were through with the lucerne, Tusuja led the way to the browsing field. Olsekki found a suitable spot where he decided to have a lone game of rolling on the ground. The game attracted Sokotei who came over and tried to climb on him. Roi and Ukame decided to dust themselves instead of feed, as Enkikwe played with Sirimon. Olsekki finished his game of rolling on the ground and went to tackle Boromoko. At mud bath, Tusuja led the first group as Karisa led the second one. Thirty wild bulls attended the mud bath with our own Ex Orphan bulls Rapsu, Buchuma, Orok and Tomboi. The orphans had a spectacular wallowing time before Lemoyian trumpeted with excitement as he called off the mud bathing exercise. In the afternoon, the orphans settled to browse and Kamok, Kithaka, Laragai and Lemoyian took some time off from feeding to relax under a tree.
