The Shoeing of Oxen

American oxen in the Santa Fe trade weighed 1,800 to 2,000 pounds. One yoke of oxen in 1864 "weighed 430 pounds each, but were not fat, were a full eighteen hands (six feet) tall, five feet, ten inches long, and eight feet around the girth." On the other hand, Mexican oxen were smaller than the American steers. Thomas Burns, a settler in early territorial Kansas, described them "as small Mexican cattle, many of them black or black and tan in color and they all had short horns."
