Welcome!
I imagine you have a few different challenges to us with your climate and fauna :D but some things are the same world over.
What type of sheep do you have? I have seen a little bit about a SA meat sheep breed that is very hardy, but can't remember its name...

Welcome Kudu.

Funniest thing- we were over your way a few months back. Did some game parks in Botswana and then visited friends in Pretoria before doing Kruger and heading home.

Very different to NZ the countryside. I gets very dry it seems in summer and I saw where grass fires had run through near highways.
