There was once an adventurous goat. He was young, frisky and curious. He would ask, “What lies on the other side?” The other goats just bleated and ate more grass.
The goat herder would try very hard to bring this goat back in time. The goat would try his best to be free as long as possible.
One day, as usual, the goat went exploring.
“Oh! No! That naughty goat is missing again! Where has he gone now?” cried the angry goat herder.
The goat herder whistled till his throat dried up. He blew his horn till he was red in the face.
Tired of everything and wanting to get home to a warm supper and fire, the goat herder threw a stone at the distant goat.
This stone hit the goat’s horn, which broke into two pieces.
The goat herder was scared that the master would shout at him for breaking the horn. So, he said to the goat, “I beg you, do not tell the master that I broke your horn.”
The goat replied, “You silly fellow, I won’t have to say a thing. The broken horn will tell its own story!”
Moral of the story: Do not attempt to hide things that cannot be hidden
