I got bit in the face today...

...by this little guy:

It was my fault. I was trying to take my picture with him, and of course my camera wasn't working, so I was trying to figure out what was wrong with my camera, his teeth poked me in the jawbone. I quickly spun around and he got a good smack on his jawbone as well. My cheek is a little tender there but no brusing and my jaw is still functioning well. I guess I should pay better attention next time. :roll:
Anyway, this is Hawkeye, a dun yearling gelding my instructor bought a while back. He really is a sweet natured horse, and he is the bottom of the pecking order. When I say bottom, I mean the sea floor bottom. All you have to do is look at him funny and he will trot away .

Well, anbody else have any *facepalm* moments like I did?

Aw, he's a cutie. He's about the right age to do crap like that too. Several months ago when I was working on Rafe's feet, he decided to give me a little nip on the butt. Well his little nip left a blood blister and a big old bruise but he hasn't done anything like that since then LOL.

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/

One day I was bit on the chest by a little TB colt...boy, was that painful. Never ever take your eyes off of a mischievous little foal--lesson learned. :)

I got bit by a 23 year old mare that was cinchy. I didn't know she was cinchy, but oh man did that hurt.

My old 7-yr old Paint Clydesdale used to bite all the time. If you were within an armslength of his stall, he'd reach over and give you a nip. Never learned. Pain in the butt

as much as i hate to admit it, Tess has kicked me in the face,hand and hip all at different times :( please dont think she is aggressive and badly behaved cos she is not, she is really friendly and it was just as much my fault as it was hers....

and tess used to bite when she was a filly (all the time) until i got sick of it and bit her back. not hard mind you, just enough for her to feel it. needless to say, she looked like a lost puppy the rest of the day and miraculously, she NEVER bit again. i tried everything to stop her biting but nothing would work, but this did. gave her a tste of her own medicine, but hers was alot worse than mine lol.
