Nursery Unit  June   1, 2016 Out in the browsing fields this morning Sokotei and Sirimon had a disagreement over some tasty tubers that they both wanted to feed on. Sirimon was putting in a lot of hard work digging up the tubers so that he could then enjoy them, when Sokotei came in and started to try and push him out of the way so that he could reap the benefit of Sirimonís efforts. Sirimon was not a push over and would not give up his tasty tubers. He pushed Sokotei back and turned his back so that he could pick up his tubers before Sokotei could grab them. Sokotei was angry about being denied access to the tasty treat and pushed Sirimon hard, knocking him to the ground. Sirimon quickly got to his feet and charged at Sokotei pushing him back just as hard as he had been pushed. The two were soon engaged in a battle of strengths, clashing together as each tried to show that he was stronger. This battle went on for about 15 minutes until Sokotei, who has the longer tusks of the two, managed to overpower Sirimon, showing that he was in fact the stronger one and is the dominant male in the group. Neither Sirimon nor Boromoko are really strong enough to be a big enough challenge for him.

Sirimon had a lengthy fight with Sokotei today
