Sele bafike bahlala nazo esifundeni se-Eastern Cape, esinamahlathi azele ngameva ukufuya imbuzi kwabayipumelelo. Lapha abalimi bakhona bathola imbuzi ezinoboya obufitjhani kanye neendlebe ezilengako ezavula i-vegetation egade enameva zivulela imbuzi ezimhlobo we-Angora, izimvu kanye neenkomo.

Imbuzi ezimhlophe zazithandwa khulu ngombana zibonakala lula ukobana zizibandakanya ngokomseme nembuzi eziduna ezimatjhatjhazi ekwarholela ekutheni kubelethwe i-Boer goat eplasini le-Kaalplaas eduze kwe-Cradock.

Imbuzi yomhlobo we-Speckled ivela esifundeni esomileko se-Northern Cape iza nabafuyi abavela e-Namibia lapha baqiniseka khona bona ihlala imsulwa. Imbuzi yomhlobo we-Speckled inemispha emikhulu begodu yimbuzi ehlangana nendawo ngomzimba ukuya kwekulu. Iinendlebe zikulu ezilengako begodu zombili eduna nesikazi zineempondo. Eziduna zineendevu kanye nezinye ezisikazi. Indevu zembuzi eduna zikulu.

Ihloko yembuzi yomhlobo we-Speckled kanye neenyawo zayo zinombala onzima onamatjhatjhaza amhlophe esphongweni hlangana namaphondo. Umzimbayo woke umhlophe, unamatjhatjhaza abovu nanzotho nanyana amatjhatjhazi anzima anomuda onzima phezulu, nangaphambili entanyeni. Imbuzi ezinengi zinoboya obufitjhani obuphazimako begodu zimila i-cashmere ebusika.

Ziphila kuhle ngaphasi kobujamo bezulu esifundeni se-Kunene e-Namibia, imbuzi le imatsikani ibeyikulu zinomlenze omatsikani ivamise ukutholakala nabantu bomhlobo we-Himba. Imbuzesi zithanda ukukhambakhamba begodu zirhona ukukhamba amabanga amade ziyokufuna amanzi. Imbuzezi zinobuso obude obondileko neendlebe ezide ezilengako kanye namaphondo ezisikazi kanye neziduna. Imbuzi zomhlobo we-Kaokoland imabalabala inoboya obude ukuya kobufitjhani obuqondileko.
