Thor has been a fabulous addition to the genetics of our herd. He is tame and gentle and passes that onto his offspring as well. His pedigree includes such greats as Dreadlock, Wooly Bully (import) and Queen Allante (import). He is 3/4 wooly so he adds a little fiber to his offspring as well. Thor is an 'Imperial- Royal' meaning he can throw an Imperial Trim which has the black nose. Thor is quite easy to 'work', he LOVES to be brushed and is quite cooperative in the squeeze chute and head gate. We feel very lucky that he trusts us so much...nothing like the love from a gentle giant!

Yahoo Bloo was a 'must have' after we lost her famous grandfather Sherpa H100 in 2012 at the age of 14. We were never able to part with Sherpa so we never kept any of his daughters while he was alive. Once gone, we purchased our current bull Thor Y052 and began buying some of Sherpa's granddaughters to keep his tame and gentle bloodlines going. Breeding these girls to Thor as worked out very well, we are able to combine some of the very old lines with some of the newer lines and get the best of both worlds. Yahoo is a great mama and has been known to throw extremely friendly bull calves!!!
 IYAK - Foundation# T081 Royal


Y-Fi is the name of this little guy here at High Country Critters, all calves get a 'Y' name which has been our trade mark for 20 years and...it sounds so good with his Mama's name! He was born here 5/9/20 to our Yahoo Bloo T081 who is a Sherpa H100 granddaughter. The Sherpa lines have proven to produce kind gentle yaks generation after generation. We strive to keep those lines going since Sherpa was our herd bull for 14 years.

Y-Fi's sire is our Thor Y052... that's where he gets that nice triangle head! Thor is a massive, gorgeous royal who loves to be scratched and brushed. Thor's pedigree goes back to the original yaks that were imported into the US. Thor is 3/4 wooly so he adds some fiber to each calf.

Y-Fi is a social, friendly boy who loves to be scratched and brushed. Y-Fi is DNA tested, registered with IYAK as a full foundation yak w/GeneSeek data, vaccinated wormed, hooves trimmed and all brushed out! All buyers will receive a 5 page Yak Care Guide once a 25% deposit has been paid. We will be here to help you for the life of your yak. References are available upon request.

Remember...we can create a breeding pair or even a little starter herd, I work with several other CO. ranchers to make your dreams come true. We deliver within a 150mi radius or can meet and move from trailer to trailer. Please email or call Lynda at 719-495-9155
