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!!!!
