Another new month and the babies left their night Stockades without their usual Matriarch, Loijuk, who has been spending time out as an Ex Orphan. However, she arrived first thing in the morning, along with some wild friends, to escort the Youngsters to take a drink at the trough, and then out to browse, closely followed by Sabachi, who adores her. They enjoyed the noon mudbath, and took another in passing on the way back in the evening. Back at the Stockades, they encountered Yatta’s group drinking at the trough, and the Youngsters joined the Ex Orphans briefly before going back into their Stockades. Loijuk went off with Yatta’s group when they left later.
