|The farmer's son was returning from the vet with a pickup load of goats his father had entrusted to him, when all of a sudden the tailgate dropped and the goats jumped out. Goats scurried off in different directions, but the determined boy walked all over the neighborhood scooping up the wayward goats and returning them to the truck. Hoping he had found them all, the boy reluctantly returned home, expecting the worst.
"Pa, the goats got loose," the boy confessed sadly, "but I managed to find all twelve of them."
"Well, you did real good, son," the farmer beamed. "You left with seven."
