4/29/2016 - The orphans had their milk this bright morning and then came out of their stockades to the lucerne field. They enjoyed eating in peace without being disturbed by their fellow Ex Orphans. Kithaka Barsilinga, Bongo and Narok were scratching on a rock while Orwa and Vuria play fought. Their fight went on for too long though and the others started moving out to the bush. Orwa and Shukuru were browsing together. Vuria was seen playing, running here and there with his ears wide open. This made Shukuru nervous about what was going on but Vuria soon settled down and continued browsing. Bomani was scooping and tossing chunks of soil in the air before the lunch time milk arrived. After their milk they all appeared more happy and active as they headed back to the bush for browsing. Bongo was browsing with Vuria while Kithaka was trying to hug Bomani; Orwa was competing to browse faster on the fresh green pasture with Narok. Garzi and Bomani were playing and pushing each other. Lemoyian led the group back home in the evening. We had Suguta’s group in the stockade this evening just after the orphans were arrived home. We had no rain and there was no sign of it today either.
