                I believe the line should actually be, "Bells on bobtail ring," or "Bells on bobbed tail ring," rather than 'Bobtail' being the proper name of the horse. He isn't named 'Misfortune' either.
                Many sites such as the one above have, "Bells on bob tails ring," but as it is a one horse sleigh, there is only one tail. Bobtail should be one word. If you're going to make it two words then it should probably be "bobbed tail."
                Bobtail, as one word, is used as a noun to refer to both a bobbed tail or the animal with a bobbed tail. It is also used as an adjective to describe an animal with a bobbed tail. If I'm not mistaken, the tails were often bobbed (cropped or docked) on horses pulling vehicles to keep them from becoming entangled with the reins and brake.
                Main Entry: bob·tail  Function: noun Date: 1605 1 a: a bobbed tail b: a horse, dog, or cat with a bobbed or very short tail; especially : old english sheepdog 2: something curtailed — bobtail or bob·tailed   adjective http://www.m-w.com/dictionary/bobtail

                  2=6 = (2x3) 
                  3=12 = (3x4) 
                  4=20 = (4x5) 
                  5=30 = (5x6) 
                  6=42 = (6x7) 
                  7=56 = (7x8) 
                  8=72 = (8x9) 
                  9=90 = (9x10) 

                  or 

                  2= 6 = (2+4)
                  3=12 = (6+6)
                  4=20 = (12+8) 
                  5=30 = (20+10)
                  6=42 = (30+12)
                  7=56 = (42+14) 
                  8=72 = (56+16)

                      If.    2=6
                             3= 12
                             4= 20
                             5= 30
                             6= 42
                      Then 9 = ?

                      Assuming no requirement to include 7=?  and 8=? calculations, then 9= 60.

                      If those two calculations are implied,  then the answer is 90 according to the pattern noted below.

                      [In this equation, we use "X" to represent the previous line answer as noted in bold]

                      1(x2)=2 (not shown, but begins the pattern)

                      2(x2)=4 + x=6

                      3(x2)=6 + x=12

                      4(x2)=8 + x=20

                      5(x2)=10 + X=30

                      6 (x2)=12 + x=42

                      9 (x2)=18 + x=60

                       

                      Now where's that chocolate milkshake for the winner?

                      No worries, I'm lactose intolerant anyway. Popcorn will do just as well:)-Lurking

                          Ok Genius.  You are in a sealed room containing one door (which is the only way out), two buttons, & two gentlemen.  One button will kill you instantly; the other will open the door for you.  One gentlemen always tells the truth & the other is a habitual liar.  Problem is you don't know not who is who or what button is what.  Both gentlemen know which button will let you out.  You are allowed to ask one gentlemen one question of 10 words or less to figure out how to get out of the room alive.

                          What is the Question?
