My Personal Beautiful Camels~ White Kohi

Balochistan is home to different and multipurpose camel breeds, productive and beautiful. I love all types of camels but the white Kohi breed is very close to my heart.
Kohi camel is found in northeastern Balochistan. It produces up to 10 kg of milk per day with a lactation length of 8 months. I have few Kohi camels back in Balochistan, they are special and unique.
you can find some beautiful camels below.
