Searching for the Ox

There are many beautiful renditions of the classic Ox Herding Pictures online (plus a newish book on the subject featuring art from the late composer John Cage.) But today, 108zenbooks begins a journey of her own with the first picture, Searching for the Ox, reproduced below. (She'll continue over the next nine days with the remaining nine.)

Genju makes no promises that she (or you!) will be enlightened by the tenth and final picture, but it's all about the journey, not the destination, right?

Could you add a caption for each image, for those who don't know what the ox-herding pictures are all about? And maybe a link to an explanation?
