English term or phrase: “The big Joseph,” I say.
“The big Joseph,” I say. I want to look out the shed when I say it, over my
shoulder at the cold, bright green day, but I make myself stare at Pop, at the
goat with its neck being raised to die. Pop snorts. I hadn’t wanted to say his
name. Big Joseph is my White grandpa, Pop my Black one.

می‌گویم «جوزف گنده‌هه»د


Explanation:
It seems that the narrator is talking about goats. the article 'the' can be translated as 'هه' here, since I think this dialogue is informal.
