Here is his riddle. It's only a little simple bit of fun, and a great memory of a wonderful day I had, a long time ago.
So, after this story, the old rancher asked, "How many sheep did the little shepherd boy have?"There was a little shepherd boy on the side of the hill, watching his sheep.
A man came over the hill, and said to the little shepherd boy, "Ho, O shepherd of twenty!"
"Excuse me, sir," the little shepherd boy replied. "If I had again as many sheep as I now have, and then also half again as many more, only then would I be a shepherd of twenty."
(The somewhat odd way that he spoke was due to his New Mexican Spanish dialect.)
