A very interesting note Ian. I'd never have imagined the switch in importance of these animals.

Default To RGatward: Not really a "switch"

It is not that anyone switched to these animals. Horses were the number one draft animal in the temperate and dry areas, while water buffalo have always been number one in the tropics; horses can die like flies there, or rather from flies.

Since engines came along horses don't have much work, buffalo still do exactly what they've always done.
