YAK TRACKS: "Yak Pack:" Deadline Poet (courtesy Vermont's Dana Jewell)

Yak pack arrived intact.

Still frozen in fact.

Steak and ribs and sausage in sacks.

What, no yak Big Mac?

I'm going to cook it on the deck out back.

My grill came with a nice yak rack on a track, so I'll give it a whack.
I guess poetic skills I lack.

I'm a hack, a quack, like the duck from Aflac, I don't have the knack.

And so ends this yak crack attack.

Excerpt from Dr. Seuss, "Horton smacked a yak, and put him in a stack.'

Therefore, I'm contacting you: do you have a complete yak hide (head,
tail, etc) available, that would be suitable to mount?
If yes, how much would this cost? And how long would it take to get to
If no, could you prepare one? And again how much would this cost? And
how long would it take to get to Belgium?

I look forward to hear from you,

Have a nice day,

Kind regards,
