My head versus my horse's head? I lose!

I took my mustang Rowan out of the pasture to go riding so he wouldn't be frightened while my husband and his friends were shooting clay targets. When we got back, I hopped off to lead him up the driveway so I could have better control of him and not get thrown off and hurt if he decided to freak out a little because of the noise...I should've stayed on.....
This is what happened when he jumped sideways and clonked me with his hard head:


It doesn't look a ton better this morning, more puffy under my eye, beautiful purple color....I'm not going to the doctor since my eye is fine, doesn't hurt, is nice and white, I can move it all over, just can't open it because of all the blood draining down and pooling in my eyelid.....thanks gravity. Lol
SO! Beware of surprise ambushes from the side by your horse!!!!

Haha yeah I wear an eye patch pirate style when I have to go out ;) lol! Levi (my husband) is so laid-back and good humored! He said to tell everyone "I, uh, 'fell down the stairs....'" lol!

Yeah , right! He's pretty self confident to tell you that. My husband didn't realize that my friends were asking me that question, with looks of concern in their eyes. But I was always showing up with some bruise or limp from horses. Funny, I have never fully broken a major bone by horses, but plenty of black and blue body parts.

hahaha! Yeah, I would definitely say he is very self-confident ;) But he felt sorry for me because I look so pathetic :P "That's what happens when you work with big dumb animals!!" LOL He's not much of a horse person ;)

Youch! Hope eye gets better :) It doesn't look too bad? Lol

Horses are scared of two things... Things that move and things that don't.
