3) Farmer Bob has four white sheep, three black sheep, and one brown sheep at her farm. How many sheep can say they are the same color as another sheep at the farm?

A Question From Andrew

Andrew left this one after a previous post. He was kind enough to let me use it as a puzzle for today.
Andrew said...

Hey,

I have my own puzzle for you all.

What is special about the following words?

DUD
END
ITS

Two clues to help a bit:

1) This is not an exhaustive list...these words just all share this special trait

2) The length of the words is not important.

I'm sure Andrew will be back tomorrow to answer this one, because I can't!

An Eminent King

Five hundred begins it, five hundred ends it,
Five in the middle is seen;
First of all figures, the first of all letters,
Take up their stations between.
Join all together, and then you will bring
Before you the name of an eminent king.
