2KR Melissa Z053 (aka Yolissa at HCC)
Yak , Cow (female) |Native
IYAK - Foundation# Z053 | DOB: 6/18/2012 (11 yrs)
Purchasing her has been the result of several years of searching to carry on Yo-yo K004 and Sherpa's H100 combined bloodline. Sherpa was our first bull of 14 years (died in 2012) and was extremely kind and gentle (his lines are still well sought after today). Though hard to trace, IYAK believes his lines go back to LDR Crown Royal C002...the second yak ever registered with IYAK!
Yo-yo will be 18 this year (2019) and is the last of our original 4 females yaks bought in 2001. She has been with us since 6mo. old! Yo-yo's pedigree is to die for! Full of those old bloodlines imported from Canada in the 80's. Her great grandfather is Sargent Pepper COO1...not only imported, but the very first yak registered by IYAK.
So now you can see why Yolissa is such a treasure to our breeding program, we now have granddaughters to all 5 of Sherpa's 'wives' that can be bred to our current (gorgeous) bull Thor Y052. We are combining the older large/taller lines with that of the newer more compact lines with more fiber. The best of both worlds! My 20 yr. breeding program is now complete. We can't wait to see what Yolissa and Thor will produce.
Thanks Brad and Mary Jo for making this dream a reality.
