There was once a Farmer who owned a large field. Next to the field was a beautiful, well-kept garden. But rabbits, moles and mice kept eating it.
One day, a snake crept into the garden. He noticed that the Farmer looked frustrated. "What's the matter?" The Snake asked.
The Farmer said, "Rabbits, moles and mice keep eating my garden."
"I can help you," said the Snake. "Make a circle of stones around the garden. When the moles come in, it will be a stumbling block on their way out."
So the Farmer listened to the Snake.
When next week came, there were no moles in the garden, but there were still rabbits and mice.
