An oxen-driven Conestoga wagon is depicted on this January 14, 1974 10c stamp (Sc #1542) of the USA. Stamp commemorates the bicentenary of the founding of Fort Harrod in 1774 by Capt. James Harrod of Pennsylvania and some pioneers. This was the first permanent English settlement west of the Allegheny Mountains.

Fort Harrod became Harrodsburg, Virginia, and later Harrodsburg, Kentucky.

Here is another oxen-driven Conestoga wagon on a U.S. stamp (Sc #1426). This 8c stamp was issued on May 8, 1971 and it commemorates the sesquicentennial of Missouri statehood. The image used on the stamp is a detail from a mural at the Harry S Truman Library and Museum in Independence, Missouri. The mural is titled Independence and the Opening of the West and it was done by American painter Thomas Hart Benton (1889-1975).

The close-up pic is of the actual mural (from wikimedia). A close up of the stamp would show only a blur of dots; the halftone screens are coarse.

On April 15, 1997 Jersey issued a set of four stamps on the theme of "Local Stories and Legends". The 20 p value (Sc #796) of the set, shown here, features "The Bull of St. Clement."

From abc.co.uk, One fisherman refused to believe the tale about the bull, and decided to search the rocks. Whilst he was searching, the bull began to roar - but when the fisherman followed the sound, he found a rock pool, where the rocks had been eroded to form a pipe. At low tide, water was sucked down the pipe, making a gurgling sound, which echoed loudly off all the rocks. The fisherman filled up the rock pipe - and that was the end of the bull of St Clement."

On January 26, 1993 Jersey issued its first series of "Non-Value Indicator" stamps in three tiers: 1.) Bailiwick/local, 2.) U.K., and 3.) Europe. Four designs were issued for each tier, all as small format stamps. Two of the designs for the Bailiwick (17 p) stamps feature cattle. One (Sc #616) shows daffodils and cattle, and the other (Sc #617) depicts cattle in a pasture.

Here are two "Zeus as a bull" stamps (SG #s1250, 1252) from Great Britain. Each of the two stamps was issued as one half of a se-tenant pair from the May 15, 1984 "25th Anniversary of EUROPA/CEPT and Second Elections to European Parliament" set of four. The other two stamps are the 16p and 20 1/2p values of the 1984 CEPT common design "bridge" type.

From wikipedia, "In Greek mythology, Europa was the mother of King Minos of Crete, a Phoenician princess of Argive origin, after whom the continent of Europe is named. The story of her abduction by Zeus in the form of a bull was a Cretan story; as classical Karoly Kerenyi points out, 'most of the love stories concerning Zeus originated from more ancient tales describing his marriages with goddesses'...Europa does not seem to have been venerated directly in cult anywhere in classical Greece."
