From our YAKS YAHOO list:
Please help me with the decision as to whether to place a nose ring in my bull yak or not. He is very sweet, but he is a bull. However, I'm afraid of him getting the ring caught on something and injuring or ripping off his nose. He is 19 months old.
He has been raised as if he was a steer, and only realized this summer that he was a bull, and soon to be a father.
Any and all input would be greatly appreciated.
