2 more yak calves were born last week, one heifer and one bull calf. We are excited that they are all doing so well. The yaks are now down in the corner field next to the veterinary clinic, and we get lots of comments and people slowing as they drive by to check them out. The babies are getting more playful and visible, for the first several days they were hiding in the grass sleeping most of the time. We sell the yak meat at the clinic, and have several regular customers coming in to get it. These two calves were born to a couple of our older girls, Bess, who is a great momma, and Daisy, who was beating up the tractor while we caught and vaccinated her little girl.
Susie (and sometimes Jeff) Hirsch, parents, vets, small scale ranchers, and regular people, who must have a sense of humor to survive!
