Ithumba Unit  August   25, 2017 Six wild bulls were drinking water at the stockade water troughs when the orphans were let out early in the morning. As usual, they settled to eat their supplement lucerne. A while later, Galla had a disagreement with Karisa when Karisa tried to stretch his trunk to share the lucerne that Galla was feeding on. The disagreement ended in a fight where Galla pushed Karisa away. Dupotto settled to share her lucerne with Oltaiyoni as Chaimu, Kilaguni and Kasigau joined the juniors to feed on lucerne. When the orphans were through, Laragai led the way to the water trough where the orphans armed themselves with enough water that would take them through the entire morning.

Boromoko engaged Tusuja in a pushing game, a game that ended soon when Boromoko attempted to ride on Tusuja. The orphans concentrated on browsing up to eleven o'clock in the morning when Tusuja led the first group to mud bath. Twenty six wild bulls attended the mud bath and only showed up when the orphans were winding up the mud bath activities. Kamok relaxed under the nearby tree before following her friends. Galla spent some time in a soil dusting exercise while Boromoko engaged Lemoyian in a pushing game that ended in a draw. In the evening, the orphans passed by the mud bath again before returning back to the stockades for the evening.
