Ox


The ox (plural oxen) is an animal like a cow trained as a draft animal. Oxen can carry much heavier load than horses. Although, they are slow compared to a horse, they do not try to jerk up the load.

A typical full grown musk ox can weigh over 400 pounds; a big bull can weigh close to 800.

Oxen are commonly found in Australia, New Zealand and India.
