Oxen

Charles has trained many oxen over the years. Below he is putting the yoke on one of them called Satan:

Here he is driving a team of six to a cart. The oxen all have names. The leaders are Will and Weaver then Buck and Benbow followed by Turk and Tiger. The shorter named ox is always on the near side. Note that they are directed by word of command and light taps from the hazel stick.
