I smiled at that thought, the feeling of excitement barely contained as I surveyed the still-bare garden after the crush of winter. I have been feeling the mamas’ bellies, covered in fur and their long skirts. They protrude in varying degrees of roundness. “Like furry blueberries” I laugh to myself. Just earlier today I felt a baby kick. Well, I think it was a baby. There are four stomachs after all, and a lot going on in there.
“When I first started raising yaks in 2014, I would have done anything to have access to a resource center for yak learning. The knowledge I’ve acquired over the years happened through a lot of hard work, ups and downs, and a hands-on experience raising yaks. I intend to help share my yak knowledge with others and be a guiding resource for my fellow adventure-seekers, homesteaders, ranchers, farmers and yak lovers.”
