A rich man had many fine cows. Employed a poor man to look after them.
Each day that herdsman drove the cows to the grasslands.
Other herders looked admiringly. Called out, “Whose cows are these?”
Replied, “They are a rich man’s cows.”
After some years the rich man decided to reward the herdsman for his long service – gave him a new-born calf. “This calf is yours. It can run with my herd.”
Poor man overjoyed.
Next morning when other herdsman asked whose cows, he replied, “They are our cows!”
