2/16/2017 - It was a quiet morning today with no other elephants joining the juniors for lucerne. Soon after the orphans had eaten, Shukuru led the way to the browsing field. Orwa and Barsilinga had a strength testing exercise that went on for some time which saw Barsilinga bow out in the end as Orwa was too strong for him. Their game attracted Lemoyian who dueled with Sokotei but their game ended in a draw. After losing the game to Orwa, Barsilinga tried his hand on Bongo but again ended up losing to Bongo. Oltaiyoni settled to feed with Kauro and at mud bath time all the orphans participated fully in the wallowing exercise. Enkikwe made the mistake of going into the mud the wrong way and nearly got stuck. He tried as much as he could and at last managed to pull himself out. Boromoko attempted to climb on Roi while she was still in water but was brought down by Narok. After mud bath, Narok lay down to play but she couldn't enjoy her game in peace when Lemoyian came over and tried to climb on her. Narok decided to quit the game and walked to have a soil dusting exercise instead, where she was joined by Garzi and Lemoyian. In the afternoon, the sun was hot and the orphans spent much of their time relaxing under trees. Browsing resumed only when they felt comfortable out in the open again.
