I finally got my black and blue
I know the old saying green on green means black and blue, well I finally got it. It's taken a year and it was totally my own fault. I should have seen it coming.
It's hard to explain what happened so I will do my best..
I groomed him, lunged him both ways, he looked calm enough so I brought him out of the pasture to saddle him up. Here is where is got interesting. He kept shaking his head and I figured the bugs were bad but if I could get him off on the trail he would be fine. Well he decided to climb a steep incline into a part of the pasture fence. The only way to get him down was to turn him back toward the pasture gate. Well he turned all right then RAN! I wasn't ready, and after a few strides, I found myself falling. Somehow I managed to fall off the right side of the horse, and land on my left hip. Still not sure how that happened.
RIght now I am in the recliner because I can't get in and out of the bed. I may have a cracked pelvis, praying its just a bruised one... I think I'm going to be SORE tomorrow!
PS. I did get back on and after a while got him to behave well enough to let him back with his buddies. Now I have to train him to NOT be herd bound, but that's another post...
