This is a close photo of the yolk of the oxen that I sowed yesterday.
The ox cart is pulled by two oxen who have the yolk lashed to heir horns. My guess is that this method works for oxen who are pulling an empty load. If the ox cart were full of coffee beans or other agriculture produce, I would think that it would give the oxen a headache to have to pull an ox cart from the head or neck rather than their shoulders.
This week we are showing some additional photos from Ethiopia on our Viva la Voyage travel photo site.
