Nursery Unit  April   25, 2016 It was another rainy day today and it rained almost the entire day. This did not deter the orphans from enjoying their daily activities though and all were see happy and playful as they walked out to the bush in the morning. During public visiting we had heavy downpour again and the stream on the way to the milk feeding area was full to the brim, meaning little ones like Murit, Ngilai, Godoma and Lasayen took slow deliberate steps to cross through but the older ones crossed with ease. As they were running towards their keepers at their different feeding points greedy Sokotei slipped on his hind leg in his haste to reach his bottle. He tried to get up but the wet and slippery ground made it tricky from him and it took him several attempts – he started to yell out as he was struggling and his friends were now already enjoying their milk bottles! He finally managed and went straight to his bottle, very thirsty and serious with his ears held out. As it continued to rain the orphans remained restless around the mud bath area and tried to sneak back out to the bush again. Kamok and Kauro seemed to be enjoying themselves through and were busy interacting with the visitors along the rope cordon, making them muddy as they happily enjoyed touching the orphans. Playful Kamok was trying to shelter herself under the visitors umbrella’s too, with the cunning intension of also trying to pull the umbrellas down – the visitors roared with excitement as this funny interaction with Kamok and Kauro and they had a great time.
