Most Recent Keeper's Diary Entry: (view all the latest entries for SOKOTEI)
5/30/2016 - As the orphans exited their stockades in the early morning they headed out to the field where they enjoyed feeding on the new shoots of grass and shrub. Naseku, Sokotei, Sirimon and Roi all headed deeper into the forest where they settled to browse on their own, each picking a spot for themselves. The four of them always like to separate from the rest of the herd and browse further afield so that they are then always in the lead or at least that is the way they see it. Naseku, who is a young greedy girl always likes to be the first at any activity from leaving the stockade to heading to the bush as well as during the milk feed when she always causes trouble as she wants to be the first to be fed. She is also always the first in line to lead the orphan herd out to the bush or back to the stockades.
