Thanks for sharing that with us ( yuk )
I once had a horse shear two of her front teeth off at the bone.
She was all tacked up and ready to go , a horse behind her bit her rump - this made her lunge forward and she caught her two top middle incisors on the top of door which broke them completely in half, she then reared up because of the pain and went right over backwards and broke her saddle.
Needless to say she then had to go to the vets for an op to tidy things up a bit.
At the vets there was a picture wall of injuries they had treated - one of the pictures was of a horse that had for some reason destroyed it's stable - during this the roof collapsed and part of the roof, a timber plank went right through its neck.
The owners had to cut the plank short and take the horse to the vet with the plank still in its neck - you could clearly see a 4" * 1" plank of wood entering half way down it's neck and exiting underneath. We were told that the horse reared up and impaled itself and somehow missed everythng vital so was able to survive.
Both horses were Ok ofter their operations
