Every day brings new adventures in yak. Here's an example, an email we received today...
Hi Vermont Yak:
I am a gifted and talented teacher in Iowa. I have been teaching a unit to my kindergarten classes about yaks and have been desperate to find some yak fur (hair?) to use as a sensory exhibit. Can you aid me in this search? I don't want to purchase a whole hide (which I saw on your website). I just want a handful or so of the fur/hair or part of a tail or something similar in a small quantity. I don't know if you would be able or interested in securing a sample for me? I would pay you of course, through paypal or through a shopping cart if you have one on the site....Hope to hear from you soon! If you do not have something like this, can you point me in the direction of someone who would? Thanks!
We'll be mailing Ruby some hair tomorrow.
