Tonight was a bit wet out. It wasn't too cold so I was goin' to leave the boys in their blankets and feed them
In the pasture. I rent the pasture that adjoins to another pasture where my neighbor keeps her horse. Both pastures are theirs and they often turn their horse out in the pasture with my
Horses. I went to bring their horse back to the other pasture like I do every night, but something was different. He didn't require me to put his lead rope on, he followed my every step. He snorted as I coaxed him to go in the other pasture. As I was Walking away he began pacing which he never does. He ran around twice and then appeared to quit. I walked back over to Aidan who was against the fence waiting for dinner.
His blanket had come undone so I stood at the
Shoulder to redo the buckle. I had my back to the other pasture when I hear a loud BANG and I immediately knew the neighbors horse had broken through the fence. There was no time for me to move. The direction they were
Running was directly behind me. With me
And the fence blocking Aidan's spook he had no choice but to go over me.
It happened very quickly. I just remember thinking, please don't step on my head. He shoved me over like I wasn't even there and I felt his legs go over me. Just before it was over ifelt him step on my back. I was face down. I knew I was only in a little pain so nothing was Broken but I rushed home to have hubby check me over. I am quite sore but thankful nothing is broken. I ended up having to put the horses in their stalls since there was no fence to separate the horses.
So here I sit at 4'a.m. In pain and discomfort but I thank God that I'm ok. Things happen in a matter of seconds.
Be careful out there.
