Golden Ram

A fortune teller told the Golden Ram 
The boy would slit his throat and hang his fleece.
‘Oh, what an ingrate,’ cried the ram in shock.
He then refused to help and grew obese.

* just some silliness - in the real version, the Golden Ram rescues Phrixus and then the boy sacrifices him

for Shadow's contest
