1 As I was going through a slippery gap I met a sticking bull.
He stuck and I flung, if you had to be there to see the fun.?
A thorn in your foot.
2 On green gravel as I do travel,
on black oak I do stand,
I rode the mare that never foaled,
and I held the bridle in my hand?
A boat.
3 What goes round the wood, and round the wood and licks the wood all over?
A cow licking a tub.
4 I have a wee mare with an iron throat. The faster she goes she swallows the rope?
A woman spinning.
