## Unlucky Horse

Logic puzzles require you to think. You will have to be logical in your reasoning.

 Puzzle ID: #10758 Fun: (2.34) Difficulty: (3) Category: Logic Submitted By: griphook Corrected By: cnmne

Seven horses in a farm in Kentucky,
Of three blacks, the oldest is a daddy;
Of two browns, the 3 year old male is called BILLY,
And the horse SNOWY is white as a lily.

Of two half-sister mares, the black won in the Derby,
She's a shade lighter than her daughter, BEAUTY;
BEAUTY and her cousin LUCKY, both half the age of their auntie,
But faster than either ROCKY or SUNNY.

Three of the horses are ready for the Derby,
A horse must be three years to be an entry;
Maybe this year the farm gets lucky,
Their stallion's loss last year was a pity.

CHALLENGE: Describe the horse that lost in last year's Derby.

 od-1 Mar 06, 2003 WOW THAT WAS TOUGH.I'M GLAD YOU DIDN'T ASK WHO'S ON FIRST. ninjaxdream Mar 06, 2003 Good one, don't even have a clue icehaven Apr 05, 2003 Confusing. I was completely STUMPED!! inudbz Apr 14, 2003 didnt get the answer griphook Apr 23, 2003 Thanks. nickadeemus Jul 19, 2003 i took a wild guess and got it right, mwahaha kellymu Oct 27, 2003 Why couldn't Rocky or Sunny be four this year and male and lost the Derby last year? We know very little about them. griphook Apr 15, 2004 got to love horses. they are really smart I_am_the_Omega Jul 13, 2004 The "three year old" requirement was very ambiguous. I thought you meant [i]at least[/i] 3. After I saw the answer, it was incredibly easy to go back and actually prove it was true. So, you should've been more clear. scramble Sep 27, 2004 grip requests to know the reason for the correction. Was the original erroneous in anyway? miyukina Dec 21, 2005 reminded me why my 2rd grade maths teacher pushed us on "=, < and >" equation marks... (user deleted) Feb 15, 2006 Someone correct me if I'm wrong, but to arrive at the answer given, you have to make the assumption (not stated in the problem) that SNOWY is not the Aunt. Is that correct? griphook Feb 18, 2006 not really... pm me if you need more explanation (user deleted) Aug 31, 2006 I agree with the comment above....not enough info on Rocky or Sunny, why couldn't it have been one of these horses? griphook Nov 26, 2006 For as long as it works
