Dog, hog, mog or sheep?!

Hi - my 8 year old daughter found these bones in our garden and we were wondering what animal they came from and which part of the body they are from.  Can anybody help?  We live in a very rural area surrounded by both farm animals and wild animals but also wondered if they could be the remains of a former owner's pet!

    Photos 755 and 754 are of the end of a rib, the end that attaches to the back bone, considering the size only it is probably from a cow. Photo 751 looks like the elbow end of the humerus from a young animal and about the right size for a sheep. Photo 753 and 752 I do not recognise at all, it is very rare for me not to recognise a bone at all nowadays, perhaps you could post some different photos to see if it jogs my memory!!
