Encounters # 3 Bubo, the Cape Eagle Owl

I met Bubo (Bubo Capensis) during an evening stroll and was happy when I realized he wasn’t scared of me. He didn’t even seem to think of flying away. He sat on his branch, orange eyes taking me in, as well as his surroundings, while the wind was playing in his ear tufts.  He lookedContinue reading “Encounters # 3 Bubo, the Cape Eagle Owl”

“A serious sense of humour”

“The cow took aim. She came straight at Walter. Everybody – the owner of the cow, Andre van Heerden; his farm workers; Walter’s friend Willem, who had come for the ride; each and every one froze.

Healing Rhinos and Other Souls – How it all began

  …My thoughts wandered back to the first time I had met Walter. It had nothing to do with food, but with castrating two young horses. I was spending some time at a large cattle farm and horse-riding enterprise in the Waterberg, a remote area in the northern regions of the South African bushveld. Triple-BContinue reading “Healing Rhinos and Other Souls – How it all began”
