Why only Twelve Animals?
The Ox, Horse, Sheep, Rooster, Pig, and Dog are considered as these are the main domestic animals raised by Chinese people. The other six animals viz.Rat, Tiger, Rabbit, Dragon, Snake, and Monkey are considered as these are loved by the Chinese people.
As per another legend the selection of these animals goes back to the time of Lord Buddha.
Lord Buddha before leaving his physical body for some reason summoned all animals. But only these twelve animals cared to come so they were honoured by naming the years after their names in the sequence of their arrival there viz. Rat, Ox, Tiger, Rabbit, Dragon, Snake, Horse, Sheep, Monkey, Rooster, Dog and Pig.
