On the farm .. in the Karoo

Following on from my previous post on Kuilfontein Stable Cottages :

Hubby and I went for a late afternoon/evening stroll before pre-dinner drinks with fellow travellers in the charming pub

The guest farm is not only for people … horses are catered for  too!!   Later that evening when I went out to take photographs of the glorious sunset, a horse was being stabled

Farmhands on horseback.  Apparently all the farmers in the area are having major problems with jackals which take about 8 lambs per night!!!  These two were riding off into the sunset, most probably doing night-watch duty

While having drinks in the pub, I glanced out the window and saw the stunning sunset.  I had to capture it .. naturally 😉

Had to add this – I just noticed a man standing in the doorway of the house on the left  🙂

  1. A Karoo farm in the early morning and late afternoon are amongst the most beautiful places and peaceful (even if they are busy) places there is. Makes for beautiful pictures and contemplation.
