1/26/2016 - The day was good with the orphans coming out of their stockades early in the morning for their usual milk feeding and games in the compound before leaving for the browsing grounds.
The orphans browsed in single file throughout the day, consolidating the herd into one tight group. The keepers observed the leadership and ambition of orphans like Lentili to dictate the herds browsing movement, as they moved following her as one single herd. They browsed and arrived at the middle water pool later that afternoon. They then went into the water to bathe after quenching their thirst with clean water from the half drum barrels.
Suswa took a very quick bath and moved out of the water securing her scratching paradise on the tree trunk of an acacia tree. Rorogoi lay down to show off her dust bathing expertise. Lentili’s browsing mission was still in high gear, and she finally succeeded in netting Nelion and Elkerama to follow her to a private browsing place.
The three joined their friends on the way to the stockade in the evening, after browsing for more than an hour in that private place.
