Winter on a farm in the Karoo by Elizabeth Kendall

When winter appears in early May, the farmers migrate with all their stock, cats, dogs …… literally everything except the furniture ….. to the lower and warmer Karoo. It might take 4 or more days to get there – a tiring process. There they stay, shear the sheep and enjoy a 6 to 10 degrees warmer climate than in the Roggeveld until late September when the whole process is reversed. This also gives the veld a chance to recover.
