7/31/2016 - They were only very brief games after the supplement feeding as they had to catch up with the early morning browsing hours as vegetation has been slowly becoming less with the dry season.
Despite the lack of fresh browse the orphans are looking very well especially as they receive copra cake, Lucerne pellets, milk, and Lucerne grass.
Nelion and Tundani took the lead taking the others browsing on Msinga hill.
On arriving at the water hole at noon, the orphans found only mud and a small quantity of water as the wild herds had come one after another in close intervals and had nearly emptied the main water hole. Luckily enough they hadn’t noticed the clean water in the barrels so the orphans quenched their thirst before moving for a bath.
There was a baboon close to the water hole which stood close by watching Mbirikani tossing plenty of water skyward with her trunk. The baboon went ahead escorting Rorogoi and then Araba out of the water. Ishaq b saw some mischief in the baboon’s intention and went ahead taking little Araba away for safety as Kenia was too busy bathing to notice.
The rest of the browsing day went on close to that water hole with Mashariki enjoying leading them back to the stockade that evening.
