Description:From Bilbo's riddle game with Gollum:
Thirty white horses on a red hill,That was all he could think of to ask – the idea of eating was rather on his mind. It was rather than old one, too, and Gollum knew the answer as well as you do.
First they champ,
Then they stamp,
Then they stand still.
‘Chestnuts, chestnuts,’ he hissed. ‘Teeth! teeth! my preciousss; but we has only six!’”
