Are ox’s really that healthy?

  • I've never met any oxen to know if they are healthy.

  • As a rule oxen will out live a bull or cow and rank right up there with mules as beasts of burden.

    The expression that gets me is "healthy as a horse". If you even look a a horse cross eyed they'll just drop dead for no reason. I'm talking Thoroughbreds, a Quarter Horse is a pretty robust animal.

    I grew up with all these wretched beasts and am still surrounded by them.
