Near Bethlehem lived a very hard-working ox, named 'Beautiful' . His master was very proud of him. He combed his hair, took care of him, gave him good food. All the neighbors knew Hermoso, and his master did not hesitate to show off him. And since the master was so good to Hermoso, the ox tried to be as good as he could with his master: he plowed, pulled the cart, carried weight ...One day, Hermoso learned that his master had many deduces with another farmer. Hermoso A beautiful thing occurred to him: he told his master to bet with the other farmer that the ox was capable of pulling 100 loaded carts. In return, he must forgive all debts. Hermoso promised him that he would pass the test, and that he would do it for all the love he felt for him. It seemed a good idea to his master.
The appointed day arrived, and the farmers hooked up to Hermoso the one hundred cars loaded. But as soon as he started pulling them, his master began to whip him with the whip while saying: '-' Come, lazy, pull the carts harder! ' The ox, hurt and humiliated, sat on the ground and did not move a muscle.
The farmer lost the bet in this way.
Once they arrived at the farm, he asked why he had done that, why he had not kept his word. The ox replied that he had behaved badly with him.
The farmer asked for forgiveness . He was so sorry that the buy told him to try again. On this occasion, his master did not mistreat him, but encouraged him with beautiful phrases.

He dedicated himself to take a shelter. And for the ox, he had a stable built. One night in December, on the 24th, he received a very special visit.
