Vietnamese Year of the Buffalo

Legend has it

The gracious water buffalo was naive when he agreed to help the rat and the cat across the river. He would have been first on the zodiac calendar if he decided to say no, but he couldn’t. Thus he lost 1st place in the zodiac list because he was betrayed by the rat. Legend has it that while crossing the river the rat pushed the cat overboard when they neared land. The rat made a more devious move when he jumped off the head of the buffalo when they neared the finish line and crossed first.
