I've spoken to a friend of mine who has a very quiet very old girl (33yrs I think) and she's going to let me play with her to help get me over this.
I say its an unreasonable fear, but really, when you think about it, it isn't.
I really really wish someone had video'd what happened, at least I could go back and search for those signals that I so obviously missed!
Anyway, time waits for no-one, so im throwing myself back into it now, albeit with an old darling who wouldn't dream of hurting a person (another horse, yes, just not people lol) and hopefully I can give her some love and she can help me get my confidence back
Thanks again guys
Oh, as for the colours, today we have yellow, browns, some reds and two white strips smack bang in the middle of the muscle where her toes got me. Lol
