Apologies - I don't seem to be able to delete the biggun...

Both those fit the criteria do they not?

4 pens with the same number of sheep in each pen?

I like the big picture since the dotted sheep are bigger...bigger is more better. Next time, make it horsies in a pen or piggies..

Robert...I, uh, paid someone to get in with the eggheads. Don't tell anyone.

Good questions Nemo and thanks for posting them. I, uh, have a Jehovah Witless at the door at the moment and I am uh...sort of busy, because we're over here talking 'bout Ecclesiastes,Corinthians, and the second Book of Shlomo...I'll answer the questions a.s.a.p.

I laugh at the way the mortal Saxons and Welshmen are stumped with these questions....no wonder the Normans cooked their gooses..or geeses.

... for some reason, I find it difficult to concentrate on anything else when sheep are mentioned. Is it becoz I is Welsh?

I prefer the second solution Sam - but I'm sure I have come across a puzzle similar to this and I don't think that was the answer -

I've worked out the definitive answers for the others if that helps - they are much easier than you think - sort of "kick yourself when you know the answer" type of thing

+ one other puzzle - from the 1893 edition...

A board 1" in thickness is 15" long and 9" wide. Saw the board into two pieces which when placed together will form a square 12" on each side


I haven't tried this one yet so I have no answer for it at the moment

The beauty of being an - ahem! - "faithful shepherd" is that, when you split up, you can still wear the sweater as a memento of your love. Do that in the context of a conventional relationship, and you're instantly tarred with the same brush as Ed Gein and Jame Gumb. I know where I'd rather be

Form a square with the 4 pens in such a way as to leave the middle empty . Gently pick up and place 3 sheep within each pen and the middle space ,(which of course has become another pen)taking care not to have any sexual contact with each or any of the sheep.....remembering also to clean out the pens at regular intervals.
