2/25/2017 - The Ex Orphans arrived early in time just as the orphans were being let out from the stockade. The herd settled for lucerne. Gawa was in a jovial mood and kept on teasing the orphans as she ran about the stockade compound. Gawa teased Shukuru, Tusuja, Narok and Olsekki. Gawa's playful mood ended when she encountered Barsilinga. Barsilinga didn't treat her as a baby but pushed her hard until she ran to her mum for safety. Orwa had a great moment with Ololoo as they settled for a friendly pushing game. Later, Wiva passed behind Orwa which seemed to annoy him and he threw a back kick which lucky enough didn't land on Wiva. Later, Orwa engaged Barsilinga in strength testing exercise that ended in a draw. Naseku settled to browse with Sirimon while Laragai settled to feed with Olsekki. At mud bath time, the orphans were joined by a lone wild bull that shared water with them peacefully, and later a mud bath before leaving.
