The Ox ( 牛 ) is the 2nd of the 12-year cycle of animals which appear in the Chinese zodiac related to the Chinese calendar..For millennia, oxen also could pull heavier loads because of the use of the yoke, which was designed to work best with the neck and shoulder anatomy of cattle.. Until the invention of the horse collar, which allowed the horse to engage the pushing power of its hindquarters in moving a load, horses could not pull with their full strength because the yoke was incompatible with their anatomy..The Wu Xing are chiefly an ancient mnemonic device for systems with 5 stages; hence the preferred translation of "tree" over "wood"..A little oversimplified, Alice, but yes, something like that... the good doctor himself should ever want anything again...anything at needn't be a costume..
