    That is surely a pretty bruise! Keep icing it. If it was a joint (ankle, knee) I would say ice 2 days and then start applying heat. I vote no to the doctor also. Bruises are bruises and they are meant to look bad.

    Looks like a pretty nasty bruise. Ice, ice, ice.

    I had one like that just over a year ago, also from a horse kick (learned my lesson on that one). It probably took a full 6 to 8 weeks before the bruise was completely gone. It turned all nasty shades of the rainbow and throbbed.

    You. Are. Brilliant!!!

    And to OP, a girl at our barn got kicked like that 2 weeks ago. It's almost healed now. You should be fine.

    Thanks for everyone's advice!
    Yeah it's just a wake up call to work on ground manners and be patient with my horse while she adjusts... but also to me to just suck it up and not let stupid things like that keep me from my love... horses!
    Thanks yall :)

    Heck iv got 4 broken ribs only about a week of being carefull then back to doing normal stuff. Iam my own farrier horses needed trimming so I did them. Yeah hurts like hell but I just tough it out. Id rather not run to doctors for every little thing.

    So instead of trimming both fronts on 2 horses I did two fronts then next day did fronts on other horse. If your going to own horses youv got to be tough.

    You will be just fine it is not worth a doctor time! Don't be a hypochondriac.

    Thanks for all the advice!
    This is the first time anything like this has happened so I'm really glad I know it's nothing to be concerned about and I just have to tough it out.
    Once I get enough injuries from horses, I'll probably just be like EH whatever.

    Well it is a pretty color anyways.

    A bag of frozen peas also works great as an ice pack and actually stay in place a bit better.

    You simply have a nice little memory stored in your brain that you'll speak off often over the coming years. Your initiation. :)
