Summary: After the last hatchling emerged and was taken over to the feeding tables, the WLM began to usher the first hatchlings the short distance through the tunnel behind the waterfalls and towards the Weyrling Barracks. Once there, the new Weyrling pair was shown where to bathe their new hatchling in the water wallows set up outside the Barracks for this purpose only. After the bathing was complete the pair were given a small oil bucket and brush, and were quickly shown how to use them. When the oiling was completed it was finally time to show the new dragon pair to their cot/wallow inside the barracks where the new hatchling, exhausted from breaking out of its shell and stuffed full with its first meal, was ready to go right to sleep.
