## Question

What goes up a hill with four legs, and comes down with three.

It is not an un-domesticated animal

Nothing, or nobody gets hurt during the loss of the leg

It isn't a dog

You can email answers to Steeler0630@gmail.com if you want, otherwise, I will check this topic maybe tri-weekly

A camera. On its way up the hill, it's in the photographer's camera bag, along with a tripod. On top of the hill, the photographer puts the camera on the tripod and photographs a horse in the meadow below. When the photographer leaves, he walks back down the hill with the images of the horse on either film or as digital files, and a horse has four legs.

What about a 2 person team on a 3-legged race? They go up with 3 "legs" then after they cross the finish line on top of the hill, they come down on four legs.

Will that work?

The answer is a person. It's a variation of the riddle of the Sphinx and he's using the "Over the Hill" analogy of aging. So you go up a hill on four legs crawling. Near and at the top would be 2 legs (doesn't matter for this riddle) and then down you have the 3 legs because of the cane.

That's what I was thinking. Not sure if it matters or not though...

Hey! That's not fair . Cricket players are also Homo Sapiens and they have only 2 legs . Then maybe we too have 3 or 4 legs.

Spoiler for "i think i know":

This was a very absurb logical way of looking at it but it is wrong. The answer is not deep or intelligent.

What goes up a hill with four legs, and comes down with three.

Ooh, I know! A person was going to have a picnic on a hill next to his house and packed four chicken legs. After he ate one it started raining so he went back home.

The riddle says with legs not on legs.
