The Yak

We have a fall calf that has never been quite right.  She was born small and failed to thrive.  J eventually weaned her and brought her to the barn to feed her special.
 She was 2 months old when J weaned her.  She has had all the feed she can eat.
She is now 5 months old and just slightly larger than a big dog.  J thinks with her long hair that she looks like a yak.  I think we need to advertise her as a miniature Angus and sell her for $2000.

OH MY GOSH--I LOVE HER! You jest--but you could easily sell her for good money. She’s adorable and tiny!! I would love to have her. So glad you visited Verde Farm--as I’m thrilled to find you and your little Yak too :)

How cute! It will be interesting to see how she develops. You'll have to give us updates!

It is likely that this is not a "cute" nor a benign situation. Do you know the breeding/genetics behind this calf? The Angus breed is having significant problems with genetic defects.
