oh well I am learning, I thought thongs were worn higher up and certainly not on one's feet!
heck, my toenails are deformed from where they have been stomped on so many times!
Last time it happened I was legging the rider up and the horse spun into me, stood on my foot and continued to spin.
I was busy and limped for a bit until the pain wore off. When I finished that evening (some 8 hours later) and saw blood on the kitchen floor, examined all the dogs and realised that it was me leaving a trail!
On removal of my socks did I realise that not only was the big toenail ripped off, my toe was split open to the bone.
After bathing it, a piece of gauze and duct tape held it together.
You should be up to date with tetanus jabs.
