The Roguish Cross
Take a walk in the past
The penalty was 12 pairs of oxen with red ears. Since, however, only 11 pairs could be procured, the farmers painted the ears red of one pair of entirely white oxen.
The fraud was descovered, and as a punishment - and as a reminder of their roguishnes, the farmers were sentenced to set up a cross at the road leading to the forest.
