We would like to thank you all for your most valuable support for both our Emergency Medical Fund and for the relocation of zebra.
A few days ago our wildebeest “short -Tail” was found to be limping. His front foot was badly swollen. With your support, we have been able to medicate him and prevent dreadful suffering. Short-Tail cares for a young bull that he has “taken under his wing” Franky and Short Tail are always together and their favorite place to lie is outside our workshop under the shade. Without out your help, we would not have been able to afford the treatment and the suffering he would have had to endure is unthinkable. Thank you!
Ideally, we would have Short Tail in a Boma but we still need support to build the long-awaited stables and secure medical Boma. Please do consider ongoing support by becoming a repeat sponsor. Even 10 USD a month helps tremendously. Please do tell your contacts about the support our wildlife needs.
We would also like to report about the 2 zebra that we await.With the extreme heat, we have been advised to hold till the weather cools, before we transfer them to Suni-Ridge. Furthermore this season a little darling wildebeest was born. We nursed her mother during her pregnancy with extra food (going out to her a 10 pm each night when she seemed to be alone and able to get all the wildlife pellets and extra hay without other wildlife, the zebra and the wildebeest herd interfering) Her baby was born in December andwe have named the little girl “Flower Patch” This little wildebeest, loves the zebra and often grazes with them during the day. In the evening they “return” her to her mother and the territorial bull where and she stays with her herd during the night time! It's a fascinating relationship! As our zebra, Stripy and Tammy do not have their own young, they seem to have adopted her and watch over her for her mother.It has been best to wait not only for the cooler weather but for Flower Patch to mature so that she would not be at any risk with the new zebra.
Once again, we would like to thank you sincerely for your support and for caring.
