All this talk of royalty has started the wheels turning about Royal Yaks which are, very simply, a special color pattern of yak (black and white or golden and white). I'm curious about their history and wonder how it is they got their name? I can't find an answer online anywhere.
You can see examples of what they look like here and here. Note the bluff charge on the video. One thing is common with these yaks or the ones we've handled over the years, those mamas are very protective!
Happy Independence Day to our American friends!
