Mare kicked me today. . . Right in the knee

My mare kicked me today, without warning, because of something we do every day. I was taking the saddle in to saddle her up, after sizing it up on the other side, and she kicked me, below the saddle I was holding, right on the side of the knee. She cow - kicked me. I put the saddle down quickly, and gave her a good, hard backhand on the shoulder, with a loud HEY. But, she just continued to eat, like nothing ever happened. And when I tried walking out of her stall, she raised her leg, so I slapped her again, and yelled, she put it down. Any ideas on why she kicked? We always do it from this side, she knew I was coming, it was the same saddle I have been putting on her for almost 6 months now, and I was talking and not moving fast.
I will post some pictures of the bruise after though I have to say though, it could have been a lot worse, she could have broken my leg, and left me sitting behind her, alone, since my parents are off voting.

Be really careful and watch your knee. I got kicked on the inside of my knee two years ago, my whole leg turned black and blue from top of my thigh to my foot and swelled. The worst part is it kept staying really hot and swollen where she actually kicked me, and I ended up going to the doctor twice where they used a 16 guage needle into my knee and withdrew over 30cc of red jellow type serum.
After two years I still have a bruised knee and the doctor says it will always stay bruised looking due to the damage of the blood vessles.

I bet its sore that could have really done some damage. Hope she gets in a better mood for you. My mare didnt hurt me really bad she got me between my shoulder blades and thankfully with only one foot. It was really sore for about three days I felt like I was hit by a truck, but had she got me in the head it could have been worse.
