11/13/2016 - It was a lovely morning today when the orphans finished up their morning milk and walked to the lucerne area to feed. They found a wild female with two calves, approximately 8 and 3 years, waiting to join them to eat. They were welcomed but they started misbehaving by trying to push the orphans away. We separated them and later gave them some lucerne separate from the orphans. Enkikwe had a mouth full of lucerne and scratched himself at the same time. Makireti, Kasigau and Kilibasi came in later and joined the group too. Kithaka and Garzi started play fighting whilst the rest of the group headed to the bush. Makireti and her group followed them to the bush. Bomani snatched some food from Olsekki’s mouth while he was eating and there was not much Olsekki could do about it. Everyone was busy getting as much browse as they could. We had a little drizzle of rain today and the orphans really enjoyed the relief from the high temperature. Kithaka and Barsilinga started kissing each other with their trunks as the others were busy browsing. Then they all headed to the mudbath.
