Nursery Unit  July   5, 2017 It is a well known habit of Murit’s to walk into every pen in the morning to feed on the lucerne pellets left by his friends. Today it was not him who did this however but the matriarch, Mbegu! She was going into the stables of the younger ones and eating their leftovers; she kept dodging the keepers to get into those stalls. We remember how at milk feeding time Lasayen used to come down in one group and then go back to return with the second and ask for more –he has not done that in awhile! Today it was Tamiyoi who decided to try this tactic at getting more milk – when the second group came down she linked up with them and was the first at the wheelbarrow demanding to be fed. Unfortunately her trick was already well known to the keepers and she was not successful.

Mbegu has developed the same greedy habit!
