Fabulous Last Place Wronny is one of the farmer's pets because she never causes trouble and is absolutely silent. Even when Wronny is having her kids she hardly ever makes any noise. Once or twice if it is a gigantic buck kid with a head like a beach ball, a muted peep of dismay might tumble out. Like if you stubbed your toe at a fancy cocktail party. More likely though she would just raise one of her eyebrows, indicating extreme agitation.
This is as opposed to, say, Tangy, who would start screaming if a raindrop touched her.
To give an example of the extent of Wronny's stoicism, the farmer has been asking the grief-stricken milkless boys on weaning, "why can't you be quiet like Wronny?"
Anyway today is Wronny's one-day-a-year.
She is standing at the fenceline, in the steady rain, bellowing across the pasture like a foghorn. If this sound were recorded on CD it would outsell all the whale song tapes. It is long and mournful and endless, having been bottled up for 364 days.
"I WANT TO SEE MY BOYFRIEND!" it says.
"AS SOON AS POSSIBLE PLEASE!"
"RIGHT AWAY IF IT CAN BE ARRANGED!"
