Last year during the drought we were putting feed out for some of the game here on
Pomeroy Reserve. We firmly believe that this supplement to what was naturally available
helped some of our game survive, in particular the Kudu cows. Although we are not fully
out of drought conditions it was still a surprise when a few week ago some of the Kudu
“girls” started turning up at the feeding “station”. Of course we started putting feed out,
having decided that if they are appearing then they are wanting it. By late afternoon they
are ready and waiting and even know to look up the hill to our house to see if we are on the
way with the food. Word has got out though and now they are quite likely to be joined by a
small group of young Nyala (who also fed last year) but also by some of the zebra and our
two Wildebeest Bulls.
