4/27/2013 - Emily’s Ex Orphan group arrived at the Stockades in the early hours of the morning, in order to be there for the morning Supplement hand-out. When the Juniors noticed that the Ex Orphans were there to monopolize the handout, they left knowing that there would be a lot of competition. Icholta then left the Ex Orphan group to escort the Juniors to the slopes of Mazinga hill behind Emily’s old enclosure. Shimba limped out past some of the Ex Orphans as they were feeding. Instantly Laikipia, Ndara and Mweya watched him walk past and knew that he had problems. Mweya immediately ran to where Icholta and the babies were browsing, rumbled to Icholta, who immediately began to return, leaving Mweya in charge of the Youngsters. Also interested in Shimba’s condition, Edie and Icholta followed him, joined by Laikipia and the other Ex Orphans, all obviously anxious about Shimba’s wounds. Meanwhile Edie’s baby, Ella, happily enjoyed playing with Seraa, who loves the baby very much and is a very competent Nannie, so much so that Edie often doesn’t seem to even bother about where her baby is, confident that she is in good care.
