Oh my word… It’s too much for my cat brain to handle… and, if I’m honest, my cat brain doesn't really care, except for the general disturbance, but I had promised to deliver a report…. SO - WHAT A BUSY TIME! 

Future dates for our 7 day trail with In the Saddle are in the process of being set, but I will give you all a sneak peak:

  • November 18th

  • February 24th

  • June 16th

7 days of carefree riding through the Basotho mountains on some of the best, most sure footed ponies you will ever experience, staying in some unique spots along the way and meeting the locals - such a thing of beauty. 

Furthermore, we have had a visit from Waynebushnellhorsemanship, who trained some horses and more importantly some people on how to create a respectful bond between animal and human… sorry, I just threw up in my mouth - it’s really not my kind of thing, but both human and horse seemed to love it. In fact they loved it so much that they are planning an entire weekend of it! With talks by an equine physiotherapist on injury prevention as well as information on nutrition by a representative from http://www.spurwinghorsefeed.co.za/ for some free samples for all participants.

Other than that, it’s our last week of rest before all our groups of youngsters come through. I will be spending most of my time hiding in trees and occasionally jumping out at an unsuspecting bystander, but will generally stay well clear be away from the computer for the duration. 

Chat more soon after,

Raymond x

This is Raymond (aka Ray, aka The Boss) reporting from Khotso. Over the next while I will be putting paw to paper and keeping you abreast of all the goings on here at Khotso. As the prime feline on the farm and overall head honcho, I feel that I am the best candidate to give a candid account from behind the scenes. Using my unparalleled stealth capabilities and near x-Ray vision (the clue is in the name), I will go where no other cat is crazy enough to go and give you the dirt on Khotso.

Calm has been restored since the recent madness surrounding In The Saddle and the 7 day adventure Khotso’s team hosted on horse back in Lesotho. A raging success, so I am told. KEEP YOUR EYES PEELED FOR FUTURE DATES.

More exciting news surrounding the LESOTHO EXPEDITION - our epic 3 day trip has officially been accepted for the Presidents Award Gold Level. So if any of you youngsters out there are looking for the adventure of a lifetime which will help you on your way to a bright future at the same time, please get in touch!

Khotso has a new member in the Team in the form of Vicky Johnson, our very own RESIDENT MOUNTAIN GUIDE. She will be on hand to guide a variety of hikes, on the farm, overnighting in caves in the Drakensberg, proudly one of UNESCO’s World Heritage Sites or for a multi day trip to Lesotho.

Otherwise it has been lambs lambs and more lambs! With winter pulling in and the land free from parasites and other unwanted pests, it’s safe for our ewes to bring new life to our beautiful farm. Come and help feed the young ones.

Must dash - there’s a pigeon giving me a funny look and I think I need to go and sort that feathery mother out.

In the next episode - SCHOOLS! Khotso will be overrun by students from all over the world as well as from KZN when we’re welcoming Kearnsney, DHS and many more school groups!
