Nursery Unit  April   15, 2016 When the orphans came out of their stockades early this morning they were busy walking around greeting and welcoming each other. Mbegu and Roi were busy at Galla’s stockade touching and embracing him as they patiently waited for him to come out so they could escort him to the forest. Galla was eager to join them too and began knocking on his gate until his keeper came over to open it for him. The two girls were delighted and sandwiched him between them to walk out to the bush. Galla is very used to the routine nowadays and knows all the feedings points as well as the bottle feeding areas out in the field, the public feeding area as well as which one is his own stockade! Sometimes when the milk is not ready out in the forest, Galla walks over to the bottle feedings area and when he fails to find it ready he starts yelling loudly to draw the attention of the keepers to bring it soon – he is quite a clever boy! Most days out in the field he has been observed browsing closely with calm Murit who is always so welcoming to any individual. Although he is bigger Galla avoids interacting with Lasayen, Ndotto, Rapa and Naseku since sometimes they can bully him; lovely Mbegu is always on hand to protect him from the rougher youngsters however!
