Stuart's Daily Word Spot: Yak

Yak: noun – domesticated, heavy build ox covered in long shaggy hair and with a humped back, used in the uplands of central Asia as a pack animal and for its milk and soft dense underfur.

‘Sammy said he’d describe Melinda as a yak, except she wasn’t as pretty, couldn’t carry heavy loads and had never, to his knowledge, given any milk.’
