True, but of the things I do on a daily basis, catching a hoof to the calf is likely the least of my worries. Also, no offense to anyone, but if you're not alert enough or quick enough to know when to avoid the hooves, you probably shouldn't be laying a horse down. I understand safety precautions, but it seems to me that if you're messing around with a horse on three legs who's bouncing around, you've already gone through the dangerous part. Obviously I'm not saying it can't happen when they're down, but again, alertness is all it should take, in my opinion.
