Two Oxen



There are two oxen on the farm now.  Their names are Buck and Bright.  Six years ago they were little calves, but now they are even bigger and stronger than the horses.  They have deep, heavy bodies and thick, knobby legs.  Their horns curve in front of their foreheads and the whites of their eyes show.  They look fierce, but Sarah knows they are mild-tempered and patient.  They are eating hay that Jonas gave them while Henry was feeding the cows.
