He had not even a goat, nor the money to buy any though he and his wife would have been extremely happy to have one. One day he said to her, "A good thought has just struck me.
The carver can make us a lamb out of wood and paint it brown so that it will look like any other. In time perhaps it will grow big and become a goat". This proposal pleased his wife. And the carver was instructed accordingly and he cut out the lamb, painted it as it should be and so made it that its head was bent down is if eating.
The next morning the goats were driven out to pasture and the farmer called the shepherd and said, "See… I have here So god made a farmer little lamb.

The shepherd drove his herd through the village. The farmer asked him about the lamb. The shepherd replied, "It is still standing there eating.
It is not listening to me". The farmer exclaimed, "Eh! I must have my lamb! But someone had stolen the lamb and it was gone.

The flesh they salted down and the skin the poor farmer took to the next town to sell and to buy a lamb with what he got for it.
On the way he passed a mill where a raven was sitting with a broken wing and out of compassion he took the bird up and wrapped it in the skin he was carrying.
But the weather was very bad with a great storm and rain so he was unable to go further and turning into the mill, begged for shelter.
The miller's wife was at home alone and said to the farmer, "Lie down on that straw" and gave him a piece of bread and cheese.
The farmer ate it and lay down with the skin near him and the miller's wife thought he was asleep. Later, a man came and she received him very cordially. She gave him a grand feast and the farmer was vexed on having been treated only with bread and cheese.
The woman went inside the kitchen and brought well-fried chicken, rice and salad. As they were sitting down to eat, there was knock outside and the woman exclaimed, "Oh! That is my husband! After doing all this she let in her husband and said, "God be praised! You have returned again!
What weather it is, as if the world is coming to an end! His wife said, 'Ah, the poor fellow came in the wind and rain and begged for shelter so I gave him some bread and cheese and showed him the straw. The wild said, "I have nothing but bread and cheese" and her husband told her with that he should be contented and asked the farmer to come and share his meal.
