1/29/2017 - This morning was quiet as Garzi, Kauro and Barsilinga took some time off from feeding to scratch on the nearby rocks. Later Kauro moved to Kamok and he tried to scratch his ear against her body. Half an hour later the Ex Orphans reported to the stockades and joined the orphans to feast on lucerne. Gawa was very active and for some time engaged Roi and later Bomani in a light pushing game. Garzi settled to play with Ithumbah who was also with the Ex Orphan group. Orwa, who was standing close by, joined Garzi in driving Ithumbah away. Later Garzi tried his hand with Ex Orphan bull Taita but he couldn't withstand Taita’s strength and so surrendered. The orphans parted ways with their seniors and settled to feed in the Kanziku area. The orphans browsed calmly throughout the day without any major observation. Siangiki teamed up with Sirimon to browse and in the afternoon the orphans settled to browse in Kone area. The sun was hot and this prompted the orphans to take a break from feeding to relax under trees with good shade. They only resumed browsing when the temperature dropped to a more favourable level.
