As soon as the orphans emerged in the morning, Mutara was waiting anxiously outside the door of Naipoki, eager to meet her, rumbling to her. As soon as she came out with Wasin, Mutara embraced her lovingly and was reluctant to leave her when called away by the Keepers to join the rest of the group who were already heading out to browse. In the end Naipoki had to be returned to her stable and only then did Mutara leave her, complaining all the way, as she went to join the rest of the herd. Naipoki spent the day with little Wasin and their Keepers, closer to the compound.
