Out to Pasture

A group of Texas tourists were on a bus tour of France when they came upon the town of Sancerre in the Loire Valley.

They eventually stopped at the little village of Chavignol and visited a cheese farm where the world famous 'Crottin de Chavignol' goat's cheese is made; their guide, who was the farmer's wife, led them through a process of cheese making, explaining how goat's milk was used.

Madame showed the group a picturesque hillside where many goats were grazing. These, she explained, were the older goats put out to pasture when they no longer produced. Madame then asked, turning to the group, 'What do you do in Texas with your old goats that aren't producing?'

One spry and very quick elderly gentleman answered, 'They send us on bus tours.'
