The Piglet, the Sheep and the Goat

posted in Goat, Miscellaneous |

A young Pig was shut up in a fold-yard with a Goat and a Sheep.

One time, when the shepherd grabbed the Pig, he grunted and squeaked and resisted violently.

The Sheep and the Goat complained of his distressing cries, saying, “The shepherd often handles us, and we do not cry out.”

To this the Pig replied, “Your handling and mine are very different things. He catches you only for your wool, or your milk, but he lays hold on me for my very life.”

Moral: Don’t compare another’s troubles to your own.
