Covered in Blood and Kicked twice.

My favorite mare Krystal Flame is 6 weeks from foaling and as large as an elephant. Yet somehow in the last 3 days she has managed to injure both her eye and her left fetlock.
Both injures when I noticed them caused minor heart attacks and indecision on what action to take. Go get my cell phone and call the vet or secure the mare then go get the phone.
Both times I got the mare. First cut was on her eyelid and her whole eye was ringed in blood. Thought she got kicked or something but after applying pressure with a towel it looked like a thorn from a Bois D' Arc tree . After stemming the flow of blood she dropped her head and started searching my pocket for treats. No vet required.
This morning however after feeding her She was acting as if she was in heat. Not possible but she squealed a lot and after approaching the stallions fence striking with both her front feet and kicking out with her hind legs.
Went outside about 10 or so and she was standing in blood and her left hoof was covered. Somehow she lacerated her fetlock like she was trying to slit her wrist..
Tied her up went to the house grabbed a kotex and the phone then tried to stop the bleeding.
This mare hates to have her feet handled and every time I placed the kotex on the cut she struck out with her front feet.
Got knocked in the head a couple of times and when I moved to the side she got me with her hind leg. Ungrateful B*&^%. **** near knocked me out.
I finally settled her down and got the bleeding stopped. The cut is not that bad and the vet will be here later. Thank fully I did have some Wonder Dust.
I was covered in blood and when the UPS man arrived as I was going in the house you should have seen the look on his face. Shalom

Geeze db, can't you find a safer hobby, like bungee jumping out of a jet at 30,000 feet?

Well no, but I don't think getting clocked in the head by a pregnant, skeeved off mare sounds that fun, either.

Any thing to do with a horse IMO is fun. Lol Or at least worthwhile.
I have seen mares show signs of heat while pregnant but never this intense.
There are 2 young mares with her in this pasture that are in heat.
I was just bragging to the vet the other day after he saw me out having dinner that I was having a stroke of good luck. Havent called him in almost 4 months and before that almost a year.
Jinxed myself I am sure. Shalom

No muppetgirl he dropped of his package never said a word and drove out pretty rapidly.
I don't think he could handle a kotex stuck on my head. Shalom
