How about that number 13? I was thinking brachio spongia? And are some of them toe bones?

The first bone is a bovid (cow) medial phalanx which seem to be missing the epiphysis.  The second is an epiphysis probably from a deer proximal phalanx.  Number 11 is probably a tapir proximal phalanx from a side toe.  You should take better images of item 13, which may be what I believe to be bryozoan or a cast of a bryozoan (though there are other opinions).

 

Allow me to suggest that GROUP IMAGES of more than a few fossils are not effective. The more individual fossils in an image, the greater the amount of table-top is in the image. Viewers cannot see the details of a fossil that might take up less than five percent of the total image. Photograph a single fossil (or two or three, if they're tiny), and post that image.
