Got in a fight with a wheelbarrow..and lost

Out of all the potential dangers when handling horses who would of thought a **** WHEELBAROW would be the thing to hurt me. Yesterday I was mucking stalls at the barn I work and board at and had a very full wheelbarrow that I went to go dump. In order to get to the manure pile I have to go down this like 2 foot drop on the side of the barn, and we put a big board there as like a makeshift ramp for the wheelbarrow. Well I guess the board was slippery still from the rain the previous day and I slid, landed on my A** and slid down the ramp and through the gravel which did wonders for my arms, and the handle of the wheelbarrow slammed into the top of my knee which now has a huge bruise. To make matters even worse all the poop fell over and I had to pick it all up AGAIN, and the whole time my horse is staring at me like " oh you fell? Well I would come check on you but I have some very important grass to eat" lol

You ever do that thing where you're pushing a full wheelbarow up a hill and you slip and fall forward? The wheelbarow comes back at you. Its horrifying.

ive done that before.
we have a 65 ford pickup that we haul our crap to the dump in. so theres 2 boards that you have to push the wheelbarrow up into the bed...theyre almost vertical....and im pushing this giant 2 wheel bucket full of crap up..

now imagine that its -10 degrees or colder.
everything is frozen
theres a layer of ice on the boards that im pushing/climbing up with on the wheelbaroow

needless to say my muck boots slipped on the ice, i went tumbling, and about 60lbs of horse/cow crap came landing on my head...followed by the 15 lb wheelbarrow.

this has happened like 3 times..
it hurt..haha i feel your pain!

*Insert something witty*
