Young Jersey Oxen At Work in the Woods

This team of young Jersey oxen are doing a remarkable job skidding firewood logs in the woods.

Scout the Ox shows a lot more independence when working than these two young ones do.  I've settled on leading him when we are working in close quarters.

Because a single ox is not yoked to a team-mate, he has an easier time following his own whims.
