Nursery Unit  July   11, 2017 Today at dawn lovely Ex Orphan rhino Solio visited the orphans’ stockades which excited Maxwell as usual and he ran about his stockades in happiness. He knocked on the wooden fence of his stockade looking for a way to join her, and in response Solio knocked back. This really excited Maxwell and made him really want to knock down the posts to play with her. After 6am in the morning when Solio had finished the lucerne feed which the keepers had put out for her, she went back to Maxwell and the two had a sparring match through the posts by locking horns. A while later Solio left Maxwell in style because she turned and sprayed urine and unfortunately it went in Maxwell’s face as he was standing right beside his gate! This drove Maxwell nuts and he ran about his stockade and turned back to knock on the gate as hard as he could, but Solio had already left running for the forest to make her way back into the Park. Maxwell ran around until he was so tired he was very out of breath and his mouth was open; finally he went to his mud bath to relax and cool down for awhile.

Maxwell was very happy this morning
