I went out to the barn to give Biscuit a bath and rasp his hooves. Got out there and pulled him up to the wash rack. I realized I'd left all the grooming/hoof tools in the trailer at home. So I was just going to give The Biscuit a good scrubby bath and whiten that mane and tail. I proceeded to soak his tail in Mrs. Stewart's Blueing and his mane, too. Then I put OxyClean in them to remove any stains.
My boy was looking like a million bucks. I had on Crock sandals and my boots were in the car - I didn't want to get them wet. He was being such a good boy so I let him graze on some clover while he dried. He has long hair under his jaw so I was going to trim him up with clippers. He was just fine with that....til another boarder drove down the road by the barn. As soon as her truck hit the rocks it made a loud racket and he startled and jump right on my right foot.
Gaaaaa it immediately swelled up and was BLUE. I took this picture with my phone and texted it to my cousin who is the director of an ER. I managed to get Biscuit down to his paddock and drive myself to the ER. My cousin and her hubby were there (they are my riding buddies) and got an exray. Possible slight crack in one bone and was told I was a REAL cowgirl as I had a set of spurs on my heel that were huge. LOL I already knew that. My foot is stiff as a board but doesn't really hurt right now.
What an idiot....I will never go without my boots again....
