Nursery Unit  August   6, 2017 Musiara and Luggard are becoming great friends and this only grows day after day. Whilst out in the forest they follow each other and they will wait for each other and walk at the back of the herd. When going for milk Luggard tries to compete with Musiara and runs behind to try and over take. Musiara also now prefers to sleep against the wall separating them during the night, so he can be close to Luggard then as well.

Esampu has been taking care of Maktao recently but she is not yet ready for him to suckle her ears. He tried a couple of times today but eventually Esampu got tired and pushed him to the side. Maktao complained bitterly, forcing Tagwa to come over and when Esampu saw her running in their direction she took off to avoid being disciplined.
