A few weeks before our arrival some abandoned lambs had been found on the farm. They had then been hand reared and had become completely tame, running and bleating at anybody who came near.
Aside from the traditional cattle, sheep and goats, the farm also sports some game including wildebeest (blue and black), springbuck, ostriches, kudu and gemsbok. Not to mention a couple of cows and even donkeys that think they belong to one of the afore-mentioned groups.
Apparently these bugs are known as “oog-pisters” on the farm. I’m not sure what the English name is. Apparently they can spray a fluid into your eyes causing them to swell hideously. I managed to catch a couple of them mating – not that it seemed necessary due to their sheer abundance.
