Seven shepherds slept over at slope (mágulá) and they lost three flocks! Their sadness is great since they have lost their whole fortune. Their only wish is for them to hear again the bronze - silver - bells which is a sign that their sheep are returning to the fold. The youngest shepherd however tries to console them by saying that he prefers to lose all of his sheep as long as his mother doesn’t die : ~
