Nursery Unit  June   7, 2016 This morning once the orphans were already in the bush for the day’s browsing session Oltaiyoni, the matriarch of the group, began her daily inspection of the group, starting from the youngest and ending with the oldest boy Balguda. Once she reached Balguda she decided to stop and spend some time browsing with him and the two fed side by side for a while before engaging in a gentle pushing game.

Kauro can often be found playing with Ndotto and Lasayen who are good friends. Today he pulled the two younger orphans away from the rest of the group so that he could enjoy some fun and games with the two boys and after playing they then browsed together until it was time for the 9am milk feed.

Since the move of Olsekki and Enkikwe, Sokotei has become less of a bully towards Kauro which is positive to see although sadly Boromoko and Kauro’s friendship seems to be waning slightly and the two playmates do not spend as much time together as they used to.

Today Ndotto had a serious strength testing and pushing game with Tusuja who is bigger and stronger than he is, and as such he was not able to overcome his older peer. When the exchange became quite heated the keepers stepped in and brought an end to the game, separating the two so that they could calm down and relax a little.
