Most Recent Keeper's Diary Entry: (view all the latest entries for MAXWELL)
3/31/2016 - Around 9.15pm during the night, lovely Solio bounded back into the orphan stockade area where she happily visited upon Maxwell at one of his stockade gates close to his water trough. They communicated through the stockade fence for awhile with their lips and after a few minutes by locking horns as well in a playful manner. After awhile Solio left him to go into her old stockade where she was welcomed with some lucerne from the keepers. She spent most of the night roaming around the stockade area until 6.15am when she encountered the orphans leaving their stockades for the bush. Olsekki, Sokotei, Sirimon, Oltaiyoni and Siangiki took delight in mock-charging and trumpeted after Solio which saw her leave at high speed back into the forest. Her disappearance left the whole herd fully charged with young boys like Ndotto, Lasayen, Ngilai and Murit all having such fun scampering around and trumpeting before joining up with each other and play pushing, only to return to the bushes again to stamp around. At one point Ndotto, who is always a fan of climbing, tried to climb on his best friend Lasayen; playful Godoma and Ngilai ran after him though and pushed him off Lasayen who turned quickly and chased after his friend Ndotto to do the same to him. Ndotto was quick enough to trick Lasayen though and he lay on the floor to trip Lasayen up and when he fell on the ground Ndotto when to climb on him again! It was all fun and games amongst the young babies who had a lovely start to the day.
