-Latest one was the pubic bone, not my horse, couldn't get out of the way fast enough
-Forearm (about 18 yrs ago), my fault, the day I learned you DON'T lunge Odie in a roundpen w/o a lunge line, haven't made that mistake since.
-In the belly when I was pregnant w/ daughter, luckily it wasn't a direct hit. wrong place, wrong time

In my ribs by an 11hh little S**** of a pony who I was attempting to turn out into the field. He pulled away, span and double barreled me in the chest! I was 11 years old, I was launched about 10ft through the air and into the fence. I broke 3 ribs!
Last summer I got kicked in the temple. I went into the barn during feeding, and Dusty had snuck in there and it suprised me...this isn't something I would normally do, it was just a random muscle reflex and I scared him...When I got up to his shoulder, slapped him and ran up behind his butt...dumbest thing I have ever done and certainly don't plan on doing again. He did nothing wrong, he was scared, and it all happened so quick (about 3 seconds lol). One leg bounced off my left arm (since I put my arms up towards my face) and hit me in the temple. The other leg traveled up the inside of my right arm and hit my arm pit/ *cough* breast area. I hit the ground, grabbed my face and felt an immediate goosegg. Somehow, I don't remember doing it, I finished feeding, shut the barn door and waddled up to the house when my parents found me.
OUCH. Through some divine miracle, I have no broken bones, no side effects nothing. THAT is a shot that would knock even Mike Tyson out!
