New *proposed* rules

So. I have a new forum rule. If you post about a riding or horse related injury you must warn others in the title AND provide a spell to break the curse for the reader.

It's the responsible thing to do.

Today I read about the woman washing her horse in crocks. And was stepped on.

And I thought about my January injury where I fell off a pig headed pony and how badly my LEFT ankle was messed up and how I still have tenderness AND a lump. I chose to not comment.

Today, while dismounting with my head up my arse, I decided to untangle my split rein from around my right leg while standing in the left stirrup with my right leg hovering over the back of my horse.

Guess what happened to me when the rein I tossed aside smacked my horse.

So. My right ankle is blue. Swelling. It hurts to put weight on it. It hurts to flex my toes up.

I get married in 4 weeks.

My fiancÚ is going to kill me and all this does is give him another reason to complain about my hay burner.


Here is your anti jinx spell. Donta bea doofus.

Do you know any curses? And antidote , or "anticurses"?

I'm hoping it's just a sprain or even something less serious. Get better quickly!

Status update

Thanks everyone. Well, good news, the swelling and bruising is not nearly as bad as the left ankle injury had been in January. Phew.

I have a compression bandage on, and ankle boots to keep my foot steady. I walk on flat surfaces with a little hitch and going down the stairs is a killer. Climbing up the stairs, not so bad.

I could just kick myself in the butt, because this injury was 100% preventable. I was just thinking lazily and did not see the outcomes of my actions.

I'm not sure how I am going to catch my horse in the field today. It's going to be a long walk across the pasture.

All I can recomend is "Ice Bath"! You will need a pail and fill it half with water and half with ice then put your foot in it for at least 5 minutes(ten if you can handle it). Then pull it out for five minutes then back in the ice for another 5-10 minutes. I wrenched my ankle bad calf roping one summer and this is the torture my doctor wife put me through!

It hurts like heck but really works well to pull the swelling out.

Good luck!

Don't be silly, that'll be painful, difficult, and will cause another bruise.
