In Bereshis 33:13 it says
יג וַיֹּאמֶר אֵלָיו, אֲדֹנִי יֹדֵעַ כִּי-הַיְלָדִים רַכִּים, וְהַצֹּאן וְהַבָּקָר, עָלוֹת עָלָי; וּדְפָקוּם יוֹם אֶחָד, וָמֵתוּ כָּל-הַצֹּאן.
Yaakov initially lists 3 causes for his inability to travel with Eisav.
- Tender/weak children
- nursing sheep
- nursing cattle
but at the end of the pasuk he only mentions that if pushed to travel quickly only the sheep will die. Why does he omit any averse effects on the children and cattle?
Note: I am aware of the Ramban's answer, which basically states that there was no other accurate and convenient way to state things, I'm looking for any other answers
