Two forms of yale are found in period heraldry [Dennys 165]. The earlier form, the “Bedford yale”, was one of the Duke of Bedford’s supporters c.1435, and resembles an antelope. The other form, the “Beaufort yale”, was used by his grandson Sir John Beaufort, c.1450; it is stockier, more like a goat, and is usually strewn with roundels. However, both yales have the characteristic horns and tusks; either type may be used in Society heraldry (and specified in blazon, if the submitter insists), but no difference is granted between them.
