Benny just broke my wife's foot!

It was admittedly her fault, Benny just supplied the "press"
She is resting well now with 2 darkly brused outter toes.
And A spot the size of a quarter under her foot.

Fun fun!

Ouch! Well, I gues it'll be you running errands and such for a bit. Give her silver bell to ring!

OUCH, BTDT, nearly lost my foot because of it and 1 1/2 years later, I'm still having surgeries to fix all the damage. Give her a hug and tell her I'm soooo there with her!

Very, very unpleasant. I had it happened twice really bad (thank God nothing broke, but both times I lost the nails on foot). Hope she'll feel better soon!

It may reduce the risk - yes, but I had riding western boots on still ended up without the nail. Depends on horse size and angle the hoof presses...

Western boots with steel toes ? Mine do.

She had sneakers on
She was in the stall cleaning and he sidled up behind her, very calmly I might add, and her foot somehow found its way into his path.

EEeeeYow!!! Came from the barn.
Benny just stood there and looked puzzled.
She gave him a big push and that I believe is where the extra "press" came from. He had to change directions to get out of the stall, so he pivoted on the foot that was ON her foot.

She was doing better yesterday evening and more so today.

Nope, without steel toes. Plus I'm riding english these days, so I've never seen boots with steel toes for english riding.

This is why any safety program at a barn tells you to remove the horse before cleaning the stall.
