Old ostrich woman goes herself to the water place and sends the children to pick berries. At the water place she meets a group of young men and asks for water. One after the other offers her water but she refuses to take the water and ridicules the offerers. When it is Gemsbok's turn she grabs his hand. He tries to escape but she follows her. Her spring over bushes and trees, and she does so as well. But she is not able to jump over the highest tree and gets stuck in the crown. Now it is the Gemsbok's turn to ridicule her. Lesson to be learned according to translator: If you are you must not take a young man. He won't treat you well.
