Cool Phantom Fell Down Go Boom

Poor old man...he was running with the youngster Zippy and they were chasing each other all over the field, then he saw he was coming up on Poppy (dominant horse in field) and tired to put on the breaks well he breaked all right....he tripped (mind you full speed) and landed on his side and slid about 4 yards. Zippy stopped dead and watched him like
"oh s$%#" (that was seriously the look on his face) he knew playtime was now over. Phantom jumped right back up and looked around like "Crap I hope no one saw that" then he casually walked over to the roundpen to wait for dinner. He's okay lol checked him over and the only thing hurt was his dignity lol Poppy looked at him like "Why would you do that?" :roll: It was scary at first then when Phantom got up and looked around I started cracking up he had such an embarassed look on his face. My old boy is fine ...he really has to stop scaring me the way he does though ...he must like me having heart attacks cause he scares me with stuff like this all the time!!

Anyone else's horses taken some falls in the field? Or given them heart attacks all the time? Haha

Luckily none of my horses have fallen. But when I saw the title I almost died. When I was little I was on this kiddy ride thing and I tipped over and in a bout of tears I told my mom "Baby fall down go boom" lol

Oh yeah. My two year old has a name that I can only hope she someday grows into being; Gracie. She falls down a lot. She will throw a buck and kick her legs out to the side and not be able to get them back underneath her in time to land. So she just falls on her side with a very loud thud. She also takes to running pell-mell around the pasture and won't bother to slow down in the corners. So her back end is constantly flying out from under her and she goes sliding on her side all the way down the fenceline. Luckily, she waits until she is done sliding before she clambers up to her feet. She doesn't get embarrassed so much as she gets confused. "How on earth did I end up on the ground? And why are you laughing at me?" Then she just shakes it off and trots away.

Glad to hear Phantom is okay. It's amazing they don't crack their ribs going down like that. O_o

I used to live on a farm and we managed fancy hunters. Well we had a really aggressive eater who was boarded there, standing at 16.3hh. Anyways we were walking another boarders mini through the riding ring he was in and into his field.. and the horse ran over and picked him up by his withers and flung him. The mini was a 30 year old mind you. At first he just laid there, and then after I had a heart attack, he got up and walked away. It reminded me of a dinosaur, I swear i'll never forget it!

Green Broke
That's how my filly got hurt! She was getting quite frisky and circling me and my other mare and ran to one end of the pasture and came back running. But she couldn't stop in time before she slid on her hocks and gashed her leg on the tpost as she went under the electric fence. Looked like a nice slide,, not! So now when we let the girls out I panic if she starts running!

Riccilove - aww hopefully she grows into her name lol she sounds like a sight to see.

Countmystrides - Oh my gosh that would scare me half to death...I'd feel so bad for the old guy.

Mbender - eeek I'm glad Phantom was a good 30ft from the side of the fence when he slid. I always get nervous when they run full speed like dorks cause you never know what could happen. At my old barn my BO's horse was running up a small hill ended up tripping and ROLLING down the hill. She looked stunned as heck when she stood up.

I've lost count of how many times I've seen Starlite push Dream right over. Oy! They have been seperated since spring, thank god, but we still put them together in the indoor arena (while we are with them) for 'bonding' :p When Dream goes down to roll, Starlite would run after her and try to kick her (so mean! Hmph!) so I am REALLY glad they are seperated, I feel like now Dream can roll in peace!

My colt actually just had a spill the other day. He tried turning too close to the fence after a good rain, slipped and slid probably 10 feet before hitting the fence. He ended up with his legs up in the air on the fence with one leg stuck through the boxwire (and yep its was the horse kind with the small holes) and just layed there a minute. Before I could even get to him, he just calmly pushed himself off the fence and pulled his leg out, got up, and walked away. I was expecting to see a bloody mess but he was perfectly fine.
Another time I was taping a mare I had for a sale video. She was galloping around in the field and just whiped out and went sliding. Needless to say, I didn't use that video.

Tess has run head first into a metal gate. I guess her brakes werent working too good that day. It was when she was still a foal so she was really unco. But she smashed into the gate, got up and looked at me like "couldnt of told me the gate was there!" Well after mum re-bending the gate back into its normal shape, Tess was happy and eating again. Silly girl :)
