Kudu and the rains!

Last year we were so excited to have a total of three kudu calves born here on Pomeroy reserve. All the offspring of our new Kudu bull, ‘Eric’. We were pleased that Eric, despite being young, had found our cows. Sadly the severe drought we experienced took its toll. The Kudu in particular suffered and started to lose condition. Despite being known to be quite shy they all came regularly morning and night to be fed. We are certain that without the extra Lucerne, Lucerne pellets and feed blocks we were putting out they would not have survived. It was not expected to have sightings of the calves, who we assumed did not make it through the drought. Nature is a great leveller and finally some rain came and this year summer rain as well. The rain and also some timely bush cutting has
provided lots of grazing and browsing for all the game. All our animals look well and healthy, in particular the kudu and our first new calf of the season who we spotted today.
