Nursery Unit  August   1, 2017 As the orphans were walking out into the forest this morning they encountered a large herd of buffalos who were grazing. When they spotted the keepers and the orphans they all looked up and stood watching them. They slowly started walking towards the keepers and the orphans and one female buffalo even tried to chase the keepers, but the big orphans like Mbegu, Maramoja, Kauro, Godoma and Lasayen, Ndotto, Pare and Rapa marched towards her with their ears spread and trumpeting. They charged towards the buffalo which ran back to her herd with Mbegu and the others charging after her as they fiercely bashed bushes down, causing all the buffalos to run away into the forest. The whole event caused a stir among the orphans and they were all seen trumpeting and scampering around in the bushes; even the little ones like Musiara and Sattao were seen charging about! Despite the initial circumstances it was nice to see all the orphans enjoying a playful start to the day!
