Question 1 of 10
1. The big old BOVINE BEAST
OF BURDEN had a feast,
And then on New Year's Day,
While eating all his hay,
Unsealed his special box
And in it were four... well
The hints that I can tell
Are KNITTED, WARM, and FEET.
The irony was complete,
For from the day he was born,
His four long legs were adorned
With white from hoof to knee --
All he would ever need.
But still he tried to be
Glad for what he received.

Answer: (Two Words, 2 & 5 letters, first singular, second plural)
Question 2 of 10
2. An OLDER FEMALE HORSE
Ignores her birthday, of course.
But she was reminded this year!
Oat cake and candles and corn
Told her that she was born
Too many years ago.
And then the gift bestowed:
A THING ON WHICH TO SIT!
She didn't even fit,
And she had not grown wider!

Answer: (Two Words, 4 & 5 letters)
Question 3 of 10
3. On Father's Day -- poor ROOSTER!
Nothing he got was a booster:
No card, no call, no letter.
A box made him feel better!
Till he saw that it contained
A THING UPON A CHAIN
TO KEEP HIS BIKE SECURE
AND IT WOULD WORK FOR SURE.
IT HAD A COMBINATION
WHICH GAVE A SAFE SENSATION.
The thing that made him sad:
It hinted his crowing was bad.
He really had a bike,
Could ride since he was a tike.
His cry was good and loud;
Of that he was quite proud.
He thought his extra loud crowing
Would scare any thief into going.

Answer: (Two Words, 4 & 4 letters)
Question 4 of 10
4. The farmer's favorite little PUSSY
Expected something cushy.
Her special Valentine's Day gift
Made her a little miffed.
I'll see if I can try to tell
You what it was. Now... Well...
You buy a picture. THERE'S THE ART,
THE FRAME, AND THEN THE PART
THAT GOES BETWEEN THE TWO --
THE CARDBOARD SQUARE. She wrote, "Thank you,"
But really was quite sad.
She wished it was a pillowed pad,
A soft and fuzzy nest
To sleep on when she chose to rest,
The word was just the same --
Why not the other with the identical name?

Answer: (Two Words, 3 & 3 letters)
Question 5 of 10
5. The little RODENT group
Who lives beneath the stoop
Was forced to hear Ma say
Long after Christmas Day
The WOMAN'S SHIRT that she
Received from Mrs. McGee
Was nice but oh so plain.
Not what a gift should be!

Answer: (Two Words, 5 & 6 letters, both singular)
Question 6 of 10
6. For Mother's Day one year the MOTHER CHICKEN
Unwrapped her children's gift and somewhat sickened.
She already had an overabundance of these
You'd have to be clueless to think some more would please
Or even give a chicken the tiniest thrill.
You see, her gift turned out to be a QUILL
CAREFULLY CUT AND SHARPENED TO WRITE WITH INK.
Some offspring -- it's the truth -- don't even think.

Answer: (Two Words, 3 & 3 letters)
Question 7 of 10
7. A PORCINE ANIMAL, on Valentine's Day, received
A gift that made her just a little peeved.
The quality itself was not so bad
The color was the thing that made her sad.
FALSE TRESSES, AUBURN-COLORED CURLS, swirled down.
Though nice, they failed to match her favorite gown.

Answer: (Two Words, 3 & 3 letters)
Question 8 of 10
8. On Christmas Day, the IRISH SILKY RED DOG
Enjoyed the fireplace's big and warm Yule log;
Asleep upon the rug, a picture of contentment.
And yet the only Christmas gift she got meant,
I'm sad to say, discomfort just a bit.
A GARMENT THAT WAS FANCY CABLE-KNIT,
WITH NICE LONG SLEEVES, AND KEPT YOU WARM ABOVE
THE WAIST, no matter how much made with love,
Was not the gift a fireplace-hugger needed.
In cold and snow it was okay but not
A thing to wear where it was already hot.

Answer: (Two Words, 6 & 7 letters)
Question 9 of 10
9. Memorial Day, A THIEF CAME WITH A MASK,
AT NIGHT, DISGUISED, AND TOOK HER FOOD UNASKED
WITH LITTLE FINGERS AND A RING-STRIPED TAIL --
Despite her thieving never went to jail.
Memorial Day meant barbecues and grilling
And all the trash cans started over-filling.
Another thief, a fox perhaps, who cared,
Gave her a gift of stolen SILVERWARE
TO SCOOP HER FOOD politely, yet our thief
Preferred to eat by hand her chunks of beef.

Answer: (Two Words, 4 or 7 letters & 5 letters)
Question 10 of 10
10. THE CRITTER WITH A HANDSOME PAIR OF HORNS
AND GOATEE--he's the one who always warns
About that year he got a birthday gift
And wound up on the millpond left adrift
Because he never had a swimming lesson.
It went like this: HE OPENED HIS BIG PRESENT,
THEN JUMPED ABOARD AND PUSHED OUT FROM THE SHORE
BUT HE FORGOT TO BRING ALONG THE OARS.
Embarrassed, finally he shouted and...
Some geese came by and rescued him unplanned.

Answer: (Two Words, 4 & 4 letters)

Answer: ox socks

"And now I have eight socksen,"
He'd tell the other oxen.

An ox will get the yoke.

Answer: mare chair

She gave it to a filly,
A youngster, sweet and silly,
Whose only vice was cribbing.*

Before the end of winter
The chair was just one splinter.

*When a horse chews wood, out of boredom or nervousness

Answer: cock lock

That Father's Day was not

Can't get to know, afar,
Whose child they really are.
When parents haven't mated
The day is complicated.

Answer: cat mat

When you are born a cat
Just thinking of a mat,
Of wool, or plush, or fur,
Padded, makes you purr.
Cat butts are not so tough.
One can't have mats enough.

It's better not to cover
The genuine mouse-hair over.

Answer: hen pen

The mother hen preferred to use an excuse.
Could they have finally figured out her ruse?
She'd say, "Can't visit you this year, so sad.
I plucked and used up all the quills I had
In writing you these cards, now I can't fly."
Perhaps they figured out her lie.
She hated hearing all the family squabbles
That always happened round the dining table
Plus cheeping chicks demanding to be fed --
It wasn't any fun, is what she secretly said.
Instead of flying to meet in person, it was better
To stay at home and write each one a letter.
7. A PORCINE ANIMAL, on Valentine's Day, received A gift that made her just a little peeved. The quality itself was not so bad The color was the thing that made her sad. FALSE TRESSES, AUBURN-COLORED CURLS, swirled down. Though nice, they failed to match her favorite gown.

Answer: pig wig

The idea was nice; a pig is nearly bald.
She wore a wig, but what made her appalled:
Those long red curling tresses --
They failed to match the dresses
She often liked to wear.
The gifter took no care
In looking at her favorite brunette hair.
He clearly didn't notice what she'd wear.
8. On Christmas Day, the IRISH SILKY RED DOG Enjoyed the fireplace's big and warm Yule log; Asleep upon the rug, a picture of contentment.

Answer: setter sweater

The big old Irish setter
Never liked her sweater.
Too thick, too hot, each day
Was turned into a dogday.

Another thief, a fox perhaps, who cared, Gave her a gift of stolen SILVERWARE TO SCOOP HER FOOD politely, yet our thief Preferred to eat by hand her chunks of beef.

Answer: raccoon spoon

The fox, her benefactor, didn't heed
A spoon-owner's one important need:
If one must carry everywhere a spoon,
One needs to have a pocket full of room.
(That's true for all of us, not just a coon.)
10. THE CRITTER WITH A HANDSOME PAIR OF HORNS AND GOATEE--he's the one who always warns About that year he got a birthday gift And wound up on the millpond left adrift Because he never had a swimming lesson.

Answer: goat boat

His lessons finished now, the goat, anew,
Tried paddling--with a paddle!--a canoe.
He found 'twas just as hard as using oars.
He covered a distinctly circular course.
With boat, canoe, or anything, he found
The pond was not the easiest way to get around.
