12/27/2016 - Boromoko walked straight to the water trough soon after leaving the stockade. Shortly later, he was joined by Sokotei and Lemoyian. Soon after arriving in the bush, Lemoyian and Sokotei engaged each other in a pushing game that lasted for quite some time. Their game ended when Vuria passed by and pushed the two boys away. Sokotei then went to have a lone game of rolling on the ground. Olsekki spotted Sokotei and was happy to come over and attempt to climb on him. Sirimon played with Enkikwe, a game that ended soon when Sirimon attempted to mount on him. Boromoko settled to feed with Barsilinga and later Sokotei engaged Bomani in a pushing game. At around nine o'clock in the morning, the orphans were joined by Kasigau and Kilaguni who appeared to have left their groups just to explore in preparation of an adult life when they come of age. Orwa was happy to see the two boys. Orwa took a break from feeding to engage Kilaguni in a strength testing exercise while Teleki decided to challenge Kasigau. Shortly before mud bath time Shukuru and Orwa came across some water that they used to splash behind their ears to cool off. Bongo and Vuria had a brief strength testing exercise before Kilaguni and Kasigau escorted the group to the mud bath. After mud bath, the group settled for soil dusting before heading back to the browsing field. In evening the orphans passed by the mud bath on their way back to the stockades, where they participated in an evening wallowing and soil bathing session.
