    They grew back normally, but I was really careful to keep clean dressing over them until they started to come back in.
    Ahhh... I cringed a little.
    Those kids would be on muck out duty for a year. LOL

    I lost a couple nails, one was a finger nail that got bitten off by a cow...(being brought up on a farm and being young I used to let the calves sook on my fingers after a packet of crisps, they grew teeth) and the other was my big toe nail, I tripped on the metal bit at the bottom of a door and it wasn't properly attached to the floor, it got caught under my toe and ripped off my nail. I had to kick the cat out my room that night cause she kept tryna lick my toe D:
    They both grew back fine although my finger nail seems to be thicker than the rest now.

    I was standing barefoot on a hardwood floor when someone opened a door & it caught my big toenail just right, flipped it backwards & clean off. It looked like a murder scene, there was so much blood. It grew back.

    I lost a toenail a couple years back thanks to a horse I was training. He was slapping his front feet down because of the flies... (I know it's called stomping, but he was actually slapping them down). I was saddling and moved my foot at the wrong time to the wrong place. I managed the rest of the training session, and then limped to the house before daring to removed my boot.
    I've been stomped on by horses and cows (milk cows are MEAN) so much that I don't dare wear anything less than rubber boots or cowboy boots.

    Soaking it in warm water with Epsom salts will both clean it and take out some of the soreness. Spray it with Vetericyn.....and keep it clean!
