Nursery Unit  April   27, 2016 As the orphans were going out into the field this morning soon after coming out of their stockades, Alamaya had a happy time chasing after Roi trying to climb on her. Roi was running about in the thicket and Alamaya was trying to find her to climb on her. The game attracted the attention of Boromoko and Kauro and both joined in the chase. As Alamaya was running he accidentally tripped over a tree stump and unluckily for him Boromoko and Kauro decided to climb on him instead while he was on the ground! Roi charged and trumpeted around protesting as Alamaya yelled out because of the heavy weight of both the big bulls on him. Alamaya’s yells attracted Oltaiyoni and Siangiki who came running to the scene to see what was happening, and as they approached Boromoko and Kauro knew they had to leave and Alamaya was able to get up at last.

The public visiting area is pure mud and none of the orphan herd are interested in mud bathing and instead they prefer to walk along the rope cordon interacting with the public – Sokotei, Enkikwe and Olsekki even tried to force their way through to where the public were standing! These boys were proving a handful for their keepers and when they tried to control Enkikwe and Olsekki they just pushed their tusks against them as they tried to walk into the public. Boys will always remain difficult and naughty since they always want to prove their strength.
