Hermes slips out of the cave his mom is hiding him in with mischief in his mind. In the grass in front of the cave he finds a tortoise with a spotted shell. Then turns it into a instrument called the Lyre.
Later when Hermes is in his cradle he slips out of the cave again to get into some more mischief. He finds a mountain just before the sun went down.
Look the cattle of the sun!
Ye ha! Get moving cattle!
Hermes finds the cattle of the sun on the mountain and starts to drive them away. Hermes strats to take the cattle down by the river bed and to the hard ground so it’s harder to follow the tracks. Hermes forces the cattle around backwards so it looks like the cattle are going to and not from and where's branches so it looks like someone was sweeping there.
Don't tell and you will have good crops!
While Hermes is herding the cattle he comes to a farm with a man working on the farm. Hermes called out to the farmer and promised that he would have good crops if he would stay quite.
WHERE'S MY CATTLE!
When Apollo found his cattle missing he immediately went to find his cattle. He followed the tracks, later Apollo found the farmer and he asked if he knew were the thief was going, the farmer told Apollo he saw a strange sight and told him where he was going.
Apollo kept following the tracks but eventually they stopped on the hard ground, so he went to the cave that Apollo lived in and took Hermes to Zeus and had Zeus force Hermes to take him to where his cattle are.
That way. A baby stole cattle and had them walk backwards.
