The Famous Gertrude is a regular Facebook poster and the friendliest yak at Hot Disch Farm. She was abandoned by her mother and Penny wouldn't take her back, even after forced reintroduction. So Gertrude became a bottle baby and friendly yak from day one. She is halter trained, she gives kids a ride on her back while being led. Children as young as two have led her around the farm on a lead rope. Gertrude comes to schools and fairs, she gets mobbed by elementary kids and stands there calmly. She will even come to her name when it is time to go for a walk.
