I THiNK OX MOSTLY REFERS TO male water buffalos for it's strenght & size

as depicted in the zodiacs.

chinese treats RAIN as very important forecast.

if one see the ox wear a pair of shoes it means a RAINY YEAR.

abundance in food production

but if farmer wears a HAT, it means little rains & fears of DROUGHTs
What's on your mind now........ooooooooooooooo la la....Kind Regards
