Patches and patches without any stitches riddle me that and I'll give you a pair of britches.
A head of cabbage.
What part of a cow goes out on a gap the first.
Her breath.
Black I am I am admired a horse served one till he was tired, tired horse weary man come riddle one riddle me if you can.
A man drawing coal with a horse and cart.
Why does a hen pick a pot.
Because she cannot lick it.
As round as a marble as deep as a cup and all the kings horses couldn't draw it up.
A well.
What is it that goes up the chimney and its head down.
A nail in a sweepers boot.
Over the fire and under the fire and never tips the fire.
A cake in an oven.
What's full and still holds more.
A pot full of potatoes can hold water.
Alive in the front, dead in the middle, christened behind cant tell me the riddle _ A man ploughing.
