|The Biggest Lamb Dyer||Contemporary Texan||3:07 minutes|
|Did you hear the one about the Texas cattle and sheep rancher whose wife was dying some clothes in a large tub? A tiny lamb accidentally fell in, thereby turning a lovely shade of blue. But it dried up quickly and the next morning it was playing with the other lambs in a small fenced in area by the side of the road. The rancher was very surprised when a tourist stopped and offered $25 for the rare blue lamb. The rancher quickly realized that he was on to something big.
