Lived in one village the old man Yes the old woman, poor prebudenie, and they had a son, Ivan. From an early age he loved to play a pipe. And so he played well, all listened - to naslushatsya could not. Will Ivanushka a sad song - all primarydata, all tears. Sparkle dance - all in the place I go, I cannot resist.
Ivanushka has grown up and speaks to the father Yes mother:
- I will go, father and mother, in workers to be employed. How much money you will bring.
Said goodbye and went. Came to one village - nobody hires. In other went - and there workers are not needed. Ivanushka has gone further. Went-went and came in a distant village. Walking from hut to hut, asks:
- Not whether whom the employee?
There was one hut the man and says:
- Whether you will be employed sheep to graze?
- Hired, it is not tricky!
- It is not tricky, it is. Only I have this condition: if a well's mouth will be double the salary pay. And if at least one sheep of my flock will lose nothing will get will run without money!
- Perhaps I will not lose! - responsible Ivanushka.
They were persuaded, and was Ivanushka the herd to graze. In the morning, a little light will go from the yard, and returns when the sun will set.
As he walks in from the pasture, the host and hostess are at the gates stand, sheep consider: One, two, three... ten... twenty... forty... fifty... All the sheep are safe!
So a month passed, and another, and the third. Soon need a shepherd to pay the salary to pay him.
"What is it? thinks the owner. As the shepherd of all the sheep saves? In the past years always sheep was lost: the wolf will lift up that which will come, will be lost... this Reason. We show that the shepherd to pasture does."
In the morning, when all were asleep, took the master's sheepskin coat, pulled his hair out, put it on and slipped into the barn. Became among the sheep on all fours. Worth waiting for when the shepherd would lead the sheep to pasture.
As the sun rose, Ivan got up and drove the sheep. Bleated the sheep and ran. And the owner even though it is difficult, not only behind - runs together with sheep, shouts:
- BOJ-BOJ-BOJ! BAA-BAA-BAA!
And he thinks: "Now I know, will find out!"
He thought that Ivan won't notice it. And Ivanushka sharp was immediately saw him, only made no sign of it - drives sheep, and the no-no and will stagnet their whip. Yes all marks directly the owner on the back! Drove the sheep to the edge of the forest, sat down under custom and became a hunk of chewing.
Go sheep in the meadow, burn the grass. And Ivanushka behind them looks. As you will see that what sheep wants to run in wood, now on the pipe will play. All sheep to it run. As the owner of all walks on all fours, head into the ground because, if the grass eating.
Tired, tired, and seem ashamed: tell the shepherd neighbors to shame won't be too many!
As ate sheep, Ivan and said to them:
"Well, fed you, happy with you, now it is possible to dance!
Yes, and played the tune of the dance. Started sheep jumping and dancing, hooves tapping! And the owner there: though not satisfied and not satisfied, and jumped from the middle of the herd and started to dance squat jumps. Dancing, dancing, feet different pieces manufactures, it can not be kept!
Ivanushka faster Yes faster playing. Followed by sheep and master dance faster. The owner was exhausted. The sweat hailstones and slides. Red all the hair was in disarray... can't stand it, cried:

The owner began to ask the wife:
