In the Chinese Zodiac, the Ox is the second creature in the cycle. This is because when the Zodiac beings were being determined, a great race was held, and the 12 winners would be awarded places in the calendar. The Ox and Rat were both in the lead, when they came to a great river near the finish line. The Rat asked if he could ride upon the Ox's back, and Ox being good-natured, agreed, only to have the duplicitous Rat leap off his back once they had crossed the river, and cross the finish line first.
