Vermont : Round Barn Farm Ollie
Ollie, a Bactrian Camel, inhabits the farms barn and fields with a flock of Merino Sheep.
The sheep produce high quality wool while Ollie produces a high quality down, both are spun into yarn.
Bactrian Camels seek out and enjoy human interaction.
Ollie was bred in the northern midwest of the US, Wisconsin. Bactrian Camels originate in the steppe country of Eurasia and Mongolia. There are more domesticated Bactrian Camels than wild Bactrian Camels. For a while there was some concern that they were extinct in the wild.
Bactrian Camels identify humans by their breath odor, how one’s breath smells.
