I went out to clean stalls tonight and April was playing around in her turnout. The turnout is good sized, half sand, half grass. She was full of it and running and playing. April rolled in the sand and then got up and took off running, she got to the edge of the pen (in the grass section) and totally wipped out, she hit her hip really hard (or seemed like it) and then layed there for a little bit... my heart stopped (well you know what I mean). I though for sure something bad happened. She got up, stood for minute, and then took off troting like nothing happened. But then I noticed she seemed a little more cautious the next time she went to stop on the grass. She didnt act lame or sore on it and I didnt feel anything. So I think all is well... at least for now
But man, these horses can sure scare the crap out of a person... I mean they usually don't fall like that nor have I seen her do that.
