1/31/2017 - It was quiet and a peaceful morning when the orphans left the stockade and settled for lucerne. Soon after feeding, Shukuru, who is now feeling a lot better and is active like her friends, led the way to the browsing field. Shukuru settled to feed with Olsekki while Enkikwe teamed up with his greatest friend Siangiki. The weather was cloudy and temperature appetizing as the orphans concentrated mainly on browsing. At mud bath time the Ex Orphans in the company of three wild bulls joined the orphans. The juniors intermingled with the Ex Orphans; Enkikwe engaged Chaimu in a pushing game while Boromoko played with Lemoyian. Barsilinga tried his hand on Makena but ended up losing the game terribly after Makena pushed him so hard he shouted. Garzi engaged Zurura in a light pushing game while Boromoko moved to play with Makena. Makena was gentle with Boromoko and she didn't handle him in the same ruthless manner as with Barsilinga! Laragai kept herself busy by babysitting Gawa. Later, Lemoyian wound up the mud bath activities by engaging Garzi into a strength testing exercise. The orphans parted ways with the Ex Orphans and headed to Kanziku area where they settled to browse for the remaining part of the day.
