8/31/2016 - Twelve bulls were drinking water at the stockade water trough when the orphans were let out. Olare and Makiretiís groups in the company of the wild orphan that has joined them this month, settled with the juniors to eat lucerne. Orwa engaged Kilabasi in a pushing game and later played with the wild orphan. At the browsing field, Bongo engaged Barsilinga in a strength testing exercise that saw Bongo emerge as the winner. Orwa had his own game of rolling on ground and Boromoko came and stood next to him and relaxed his trunk on his back. At mud bath time the sun was really hot and the orphans were joined by seven wild bulls. Orwa, Garzi, Bomani, Bongo and Vuria were brave enough to join the bulls in drinking water. Shortly later, Garzi spotted some warthogs that were trying to come for the mud bath. Garzi didnít want to allow them access to the mud bath and so charged at them to chase them away. In the afternoon, the orphans settled to browse in the upper Kalovoto area where Vuria, Orwa and Boromoko spent some time soil dusting. Barsilinga came across a suitable rock that he enjoyed scratching his buttocks on. In the evening Yatta and Mulikaís groups reported for water at the stockade and left shortly after drinking enough water.
