On the Neuschels stood a dilapidated house before ancient times. There lived an old woman alone with her goat. She produced a lot of butter, even though she only had one old goat.

The shepherds in the valley were already wondering how the woman could sell so much Anken. When a shepherd once watched the old woman, he saw how she cast a spell to create the anen. The next day, when the old woman was gone, the shepherd went into her house and tried it once. But he didn't pronounce the saying right and it went wrong.
