April 20, 2011 Ferrum College in historic Virginia found a novel use for the oxen at the neighboring farm museum. They replaced the usual administrators and politicians, wielding golden shovels, with "Nip and Tuck," the oxen team, yoked to a walking plow. The Blue Ridge Institute and Museum preserves Appalachian culture and mountain lore near Ferrum, Virginia.
