6/17/2015 - It was a wonderful morning with the orphans leaving the stockade compound at the first light of day for the browsing fields. The sky was clear and the sun was beating down on the orphans forcing them to take refuge under some trees.
Nelion and Lentili led the milk dependant orphans in a race to the milk bottles in the afternoon. The orphans that came in last did so trumpeting and making a huge racket believing that their milk had already been drank by the others, which was not the case.
On arrival into the big water pool, Ndoria and Bada each took position on either side of their adopted mother, Wasessa, who protected them from the other orphans as they all enjoyed a mudbath.
Layoni then led the group in soil dusting games. Lempaute was having a lovely time rolling around in the loose earth until Kihari decided to come and sit on her stomach preventing her from continuing her game. Lempaute then decided to go and scratch against a tree pushing Dabassa out of the way in order to do so.
Naipoki enjoying leading the group back to the safely of the stockades in the evening where they were joined by two wild herds who came for a drink at the stockade water trough.
