Noah’s Yak: My grandson Axel (he changed his name) said his favorite animal was a Yak. I did some research and found out that yaks are being raised in Colorado where Axel lives. My yak stands in the brilliant light of the Colorado mountains. No, its not called Axel’s yak. Noah/Axel changed his name after I had his painting on my website and had printed cards with the image. So it remains, Noah’s Yak.
