8/30/2016 - Several bulls were drinking water at the stockade water trough when the orphans were let out this morning. Then Yatta and Mulikaís groups arrived and joined the juniors to feed on lucerne. Laragai, Orwa and Garzi took their share of lucerne and walked a distance away to avoiding being harassed by their seniors. Narok ran into trouble with Yetu when she tried to take over babysitting Wiva. Yetu tried to block Narok from getting to Wiva and this initiated a standoff between the two girls. Finally, Narok won and she was able to spend some time with Wiva. Laragai walked close by and Wiva, who appears to love Laragai very much, ran over to her to have a brief chat, by putting her little trunk in Laragai's mouth. Orwa attempted to climb on Narok, something that obviously annoyed her and made turn and to fight Orwa off. Sunyei, who was close by, intervened and separated the two juniors. Vuria engaged Ololoo in a strength testing exercise but lost the game shortly afterwards. Teleki learned some pushing techniques from Sidai while Garzi learned from Zurura.
