11/20/2013 - The Ex Orphans joined the Juniors as they were taking their morning supplements, all scooping up as much as they possibly could while they could. Dabassa then engaged Emily’s calf, Eve, in a wresting game which attracted Rombo and Taveta. When Thoma saw the boys taking on Eve, she came to the rescue. Meanwhile Mzima and Emily were playing a Pushing Game, Emily not using all her strength understanding that Mzima is still young. He continued pushing even after Emily broke away, so Tassia came in and took over from her. Meanwhile Naipoki, Kihari and Ishaq-B were picking up all the left-over crumbs while Lesanju led the rest of the group away from the Ex Orphans, whom she thinks might hijack some of her herd. While Laikipia and several of the other Ex Orphans picked up the flowers from the Canteen tree, Kivuko engaged Edie’s calf in a Pushing Bout.
