Special Visitors to Springridge Ranch

If you've been following this blog, you'll know that Twyla Campbell has been an avid fan Springridge Ranch Yak-Cross Beef since she first tried some and started blogging about it in March 2010. At the end of June, she accompanied some of Springridge Ranch's yak-cross beef tenderloin to Ottawa, Ontario where it was served to the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, William and Catherine. Recently, Twyla came to visit Springridge Ranch to write a story for the Edmonton Journal, (publishing date, to be announced). You can just imagine how exciting it was for us to finally meet her in person!

Twyla brought her amazing photographer friend along, Michele King, and we spent the day getting to know the two of them a little bit while they went to work. Click here to read Michele's blog and her account of the day.

It was time to move the cow/calf pairs from one pasture to another so what better time to get a good look at some of the critters.

Getting the horses ready...

Gathering the cattle...

...and moving them down the road.

Michele will do just about whatever it takes to get the
right angle and perfect shot.

And the stars of the day, the yak-crosses!

Later, back at the ranch, Calfy posed beautifully for Michele...

...while Twyla had a close encounter of the yak kind!

Here's Twyla with her new hair extensions...a yak tail! 

(On a side note, did you know that yak hair is used for making wigs and beards?)

  We thoroughly enjoyed the day and look forward to reading all about it!
