The Oxen of Colonial Williamsburg

 

Have you seen the oxen in Colonial Williamsburg? Together, 2 (or more) cattle used to muscle a heavy workload, are called “oxen”. Separately, they are not considered oxen. Oxen can pull heavier loads for longer amounts of time than horses. Horses were usually used just for transportation purposes – single travelers, or horses could carry more of a load of people with carriages.
