New Zealand Sheep,Teachers and the Dead

Ancestry have added two New Zealand databases.

For the 30,301 records in their New Zealand, Sheep Returns, Owners and Officers, 1879-1889
database Ancestry writes "You can use these records to ride herd on your sheep-owning New Zealand ancestors.They list name, residence, date, and number of sheep." Does one ride herd on a flock of sheep?

New Zealand, Teacher and Civil Service Examinations and Licenses, 1880-1920 has 205,044 records where you will "Find both teachers and students in these exams for would-be teachers and civil servants in New Zealand."

FamilySearch have updated their New Zealand, Probate Records, 1843-1998 database which now counts 245,362 records. There are images of the original document except for probates issued during the past 50 years.
