ABC Wednesday is a word meme with participants from around the world. Our Host, Mrs. Nesbitt hails from Great Britain. We started with the letter, "A" and each week we post something in regards to the next letter of the alphabet. We are now in our second year, round 4! This week's letter is,"Z".

A type of cattle that is humped, more suitable to surviving the tropics and less prone to disease. This image came from this site here.
And there you have it, "Z". Be sure to come back next week as we begin our new round of ABC Wednesday!
