Is that a dog or a sheep?

2008-04-12 00:00

Hendrik Botha farms sheep on his farm Harmonie near Cedarville, plus he’s the chairperson of the Natal Wool Farmers’ Association and judges international sheep-shearing competitions. So it comes as a surprise to hear that not long ago he was thinking of pulling out of sheep farming.

Botha is also involved with research on how to deal with problem animals and thought these dogs might be an ideal research project. Funding was obtained from various sponsors and the cost of the dogs was subsidised. publishes all comments posted on articles provided that they adhere to our Comments Policy.
