Pack ox?[edit]

This seems to be an excellent idea – thank you, Chiswick Chap! However, I'm a bit bewildered to see oxen listed under pack animals; I've never heard of a pack ox as far as I can recall. They're almost invariably used as draught animals, and I'd have started a section for those in the template – except that I don't know what should then be done about beasts such as the donkey that belong in both categories. What's best here? Justlettersandnumbers (talk) 12:50, 12 May 2019 (UTC)

Personally I see no reason not to include (major) animals or articles twice if need be. Pack Oxen do indeed exist, and of course they certainly belong under Draught as well. Chiswick Chap (talk) 12:53, 12 May 2019 (UTC)
