I'm a writer who visits this great forum with questions about horses, mules etc. I've written and am writing an historical set in ancient times. I have a question. I read a true story where a girl was killed by putting her in an ox cart and forcing it over a cliff. Sick, right? I'm trying to tell the girl's story and a friend told me that it would be hard to get an ox to go over a cliff like it would be with also a horse or a mule. I'm wondering if anyone has any experience with oxen? Could they be scared enough or forced to in the dark maybe go off a trail and over a cliff?
If anyone has any thoughts or suggestions, I'm open to hearing them.
Thanks so much,
