Exciting times, Julle het gewikkel. Ek is spyt ek het nie 'n bietjie front end met backhoe gekry nie.

Hou ons op hoogte. Ek volg julle vordering met groot belangselling. Het jy klei grond of gaan jy klein inwerk. Getoets vir waterdigtheid?

Alle sterkte, well done!

Neli it sounds exiting. Thank you for the interest Paul, yes we try to move on fast because breeding season are just around the corner. The whole farm is a clay bed of approximately 4-5m deep, red and yellow clay. It holds water really good, but we will do some with liners and a clay bed on top of the liner and some that will be completely clay. We measured out 42 ponds of 280 000 liters for phase 1. Will keep you guys posted on the progress. Shocked

Hi Neli. No we will be using fountain water, and the ponds will not work with drain pipes. Just drag nets as they are not so big that it will be difficult to drag them. They are only 280 000 liters of water each and there will be 42 of them. Maybe come visit oneday when we have a harvest weekend, hopefully we can turn this into a event for our new chapter. Chris Neaves are helping me to get our chapter up and running. It will be called the SAKKS Kouga Chapter.

Sorry Tommy,
what is fountain water???
I am coming if U will shelter me...he he he!
In Jbg we have a house...empty...just a maid inside...for when we come occasionally...so I can stay as much as I like...but if U shelter me (not a good idea) I can stay till U chase me...
The reason ponds are emptied...is to kill parasites...put lime on top...dry them for a while...

Hi Guys
Don't know what a Kougat is but I think Chris figured it out. lol! Kouga is what the government decided to call this part of the country. Think on our first auction we must auction a bag of Chocolates and Biltong and call it Bag of Kougat treats... HAHAHA. Neli we are working on accommodation for people that come from far. Very Happy
