In fact, on closer inspection, it seems to be growing. Later it turns out that the farmer has trained his unusually intelligent dog to steal sheep and bring them to his farm.. When the others learn about the theft, they drown the wicked farmer. Meanwhile, the sheepdog brings the newlyweds four sheep.
