Most Recent Keeper's Diary Entry: (view all the latest entries for KIHARI)
2/28/2014 - Naipoki and her friends rushed out of their stable as soon as the gates were flung open. They raced towards the milk mixing area where they found their keepers ready and waiting for them with warm bottles of milk. They split into two groups. Naipoki, Kihari and Ishaq B fed at one corner and Panda, Mbirikani and Mudanda fed at the other corner. Downing two 6-pint bottles took them less than a minute! They rushed forward again to grab some dairy cubes before Kenia and her group arrived. In Kenia’s stockade there was a fight between Kivuko and Rombo over who would be the first to step out. The keeper who was going to open the gate was forced to shout to them to stop fighting and Kenia also helped by forcing the two to move aside and allow Dabassa to be first out. Ndii, Kenia and Layoni followed Dabassa whilst the two fighters had to follow last. The older orphans also downed their bottles in less than a minute and joined the young group to eat the copra.
