Ox Training Demonstration






There were three or four yokes of little milking shorthorns. They and their handlers were so cute and fun to watch.

I was going to say that those were the smallest oxen I've ever seen. LOL

But they are certainly cute.

Curiously . . just learned that horses replaced oxen in the fields once a chest harness versus a neck yoke was invented.
I'll bet that demo was interesting.

Joated, lol, gotta start em small while they will still cooperate.

Cathy, huh, I didn't know that. They are much faster but not as strong per individual.

Nita, aren't they cute! It was all I could do to walk away and move on to the next attraction.
