It's only fitting that Littleman the Legend is our first musk ox to be featured in a new series we hope to continue each week! Every Monday, you'll get to meet a member of our herd, and learn about their personalities and a few fun facts about their physical traits and arctic adaptations.💚 We hope you enjoy meeting Littleman!

He is wonderful! Oomingmac. I am an artist and have done drawings of musk ox when I worked for Alaska magazine. Many years ago now. I also used a pick like that when I sported an afro back in the 60's. Keep up the great work with these wonderful creatures.

Wow! Littleman is so beautiful! Something about ox is so special, big tough grafters of the tundra. They're alot smaller than I thought they were, I was under the impression they could rival bison!

Cool vid!
The moulted coat that you brush out - do you use that for anything?

I love the Musk Ox but have never seen one in the flesh. I was going to ask the reason that you farm them but have seen your reply to another comment..
Thanks for letting us meet Littleman. He's handsome!

Do you know how I can purchase a skein of muskox yarn? I have heard it is warmer than wool and lighter than silk. Beautiful animal!

Theres something about seeing arctic Musk Ox given pet names, spoon fed and brushed in a cow pen that seems to take something of natures wild spirit away.
Eventually they're just going to be sheep lol
