Let's see YOUR horse related injuries!
Okay, so I have to completely rewrite this because Horseforum doesn't think I am intelligent. And I probably just spelled that wrong, so they are probably right haha.
This is the thread to show off injuries you've gotten while riding, working, or just doing horse involved things. Show off your casts, shiners, scars, etc!
I'll start off with mine.
I was shooing my two year old out of the barn, where he knows better than to be. I walked up to his shoulder, smacked him (it wasn't like some hard freaking slap, just a "move boy!" smack haha) and got out of his way so he could turn and get out. He had other plans, and nailed me right in the head. Thankfully I put my arms up and blocked some of it, but still got hit pretty hard. For a tiny horse, he can kick prrretty dang hard. I went to the ER, then came home two hours later with no pain meds or anything. The doctors must have wanted me to suffer.
This goes to show how easily we can let our guard down around horses and make stupid mistakes, not ever thinking twice about it.
Here are pictures. The first one is from the night it happened, then the rest are pictures from the mornings and evenings of the preceding days. Don't laugh at the faces, I was keeping my spirit up while being locked in the house for like a week XD
