An ox is a boy cow. They are big boy cows. Oxen are known to be steady, calm and strong. In teams of two yoked together, then can pull heavy loads.
I thought about oxen because tomorrow we’re going to be on the Oregon Trail in Idaho. The oxen were life saving on that part of the journey. They kept going and without them, the travelers wouldn’t have been able to haul their belonging to their new homes.
