5/9/2014 - Emilyís herd was back at the stockade early this morning with Mweya, Icholta, Lolokwe and Laikipia being the first members to arrive followed by the rest of the group ten minutes later. Lesanju and Wasessa were busy regrouping their herd before moving on with their normal browsing routine. Mbirikani didnít want to travel far as she was more intent on filling up her stomach! She instead placed herself in a strategic place linking up with the others as they heading to the water hole at noon. It was cold again today so the did not have a bath. Rombo sucked up a considerable amount of water into his trunk, then emptied it spraying himself and anyone around him! The cold water caught his colleagues off guard sending them running off as if they had been stung by bees! In the evening Aruba her two babies in company of a big herd of impala came to drink water at the stockade. They hung around grazing behind Lesanjuís stable until it was dark.
