Over my Shoulder - ...'the huge farm Waterloo situated above Naivasha. This property was later bought by Sir John Ramsden and renamed Marula. Dr Doering originally acquired most of his land from the Government, on condition that he gave an undertaking to put 10,000 grade sheep on the place within a given period of time. The first consignment of Merinos was sent to him from the Orange Free State in S.A. but the losses were staggering and a further consignment from Wanganella in Australia fared no better.
