The Yaks Arrive

We have wanted yaks for about two years and we finally purchased two heifer calves from Great Lakes Ranch in October. The yaks arrived December 5! Their names are Eliza and Kenai and they are about five months old. Sweetest girls! These are registered Tibetan Woolly Yaks. We will be breeding them as soon as they are old enought and selling their calves. Harvesting their down for yarns is also a goal for us as well. So much to learn but so fun to be involved in the industry. Their wool is so very soft. I thought alpaca was soft but this is heavenly.
