Freddie West, a sheep farmer, play with his favorite sheep (called Hans) on his farm in an all white Afrikaner community on January 12, 2003 in Orania, in the Northern Cape province, South Africa. The village was founded in 1991, and bought by descendants of Hendrik Verwoerd, the architect of Apartheid. It's a private town only accepting whites and about 600 Afrikaners celebrate their culture and keep traditions alive. They have chosen not to be part of the new South Africa.
