    I am cringing! Can hardly bear to look at that. I hand feed all the time.

    Today, my buddy joined me on an evening ride at the last minute, bareback, no helmet and wearing sandals . I commented, but she said she'd be fine. Ride went fine , but in putting him away, he spooked , jumped sideways and cut her ankle, right over the achilles tendon. Did not cut the tendon but was deep enought to see it, and required eight stitches.

    I am so glad I haven't had breakfast yet lol. I hand feed, but rarely, carefully, and never while working.

    I went to tack up a horse yesterday, and someone was feeding the horse treats while I was trying to pick feet. I actually became afraid of picking up the rear feet because the horse was so focused on being fed, that he almost kicked me. I like my knees intact.

    I hope you heal without difficulties. If you do continue with your horse show next week, be safe.

    Ouch. How much is actually gone? I mean, in the picture I think I'm seeing the tip of the bone, is that what I'm seeing? Did you loose some bone as well or just flesh? That looks very very very painful!

    OUCH, makes my fingers hurt just seeing that.
    One thing I will say, even if you are right handed, if you have to you can change to a lefty. After 40 years of being right handed, I developed nerve damage in my right hand. I had to switch to left handed writing and actually after a bit of very messy penmanship, I have been using my left hand for writing for over 15 years now.

    Ouch! I think I can actually see the tip of your distal phalange. Blehk!
    Have you talked with your surgeon yet? I'm curious as to what he'll try. Either by closing it up or try to "pad" it so that the bone doesn't cause pain. Or who knows what he'll want to do.

    He crushed the very tip of the bone, but not much, it was more like a nick to the bone and then none of the flesh above the bone is left.

    Surprisingly it wasn't as painful as it looks. That could be because I have a high tolerance for pain, but I'm not sure. I was more in shock that my finger tip was gone than any pain I felt.

    I'm doing as well as you could do after loosing the tip of your finger. I couldn't feel much yesterday because they completely numbed the nerves in my finger for 24 hours. And now it only hurts when I put pressure on it or grab and pick something up. I did ride yesterday and that wasn't too bad, just all the bouncing made it feel like I could feel my pulse in my finger so I just had a short ride. I'm going to try again today.

    I am going to leave for the surgeon in less than an hour and I will find out. I'm hoping either just leave it alone or stretch the skin because the only other option they told me was to do a skin graft which would require them to take the skin from the underside of my hand and I can't do that because I have a horse show next week and my job is working with horses. If I can't work I don't get paid. There is no paid medical leave. So keep your fingers crossed for me.

    Thanks again
