the size of the ox can vary from 1.70m to 2.10m .. during the two wars they were usually smaller ... the scene takes up an ox that does not work...he is at rest. the strings can be tensioned or loose

In Italy (and Europe ) the ox is used from the late nineteenth century until about the 50s the horse was less used.. my grandfather had it ... he used it until the 1950s

Keo, farmers will plow with anything they can. Since Hitler was taking so much oil from citizens I suspect only very large farms had petrol allowances. I've seen farmers plowing with mules and oxen in the 21st century, but not on BIG GLOBAL farms... Mostly now it is a labor of love for many who use animals to pull plows. So, it is certainly relevant to the hobby for the period of 1919 (when ww2 started in Germany) thru to the post-war period. I've petted an ox named Brutus who was hitched along with another to a plow. When I put my hand on his MASSIVE back, he twitched his back skin and an area at least 3by3 feet moved, it gave me a sensation of being quite small next to Brutus. And he was POWERFUL but submissive and also quite good-natured. There is a lot to be said about working with animals who are often quite happy to please you. My great grandfather had a mule named John, and when it was time for John to retire, Grandpa sold John to another farmer down the road. John kept coming back to Grandpa's farm and so he bought John back. The "title" to John looked remarkably like the title for an automobile except for "Animal's name" which was listed as "John Leverett."

History lesson aside, I like the ox, but the farmer is a bit too static for me, I'd rather he was holding the reins by the plow actually doing something. maybe the next release?

Whatever it is a great paint job on that Ox. So do you do another animals? How about a dead Camel skeleton? Cheers
