Soaking a Horse's Hoof - yeah right

Subject: Soaking a Horse's Hoof

1. Get bucket or low tub, fill with warm water, add Epsom salts until fully diluted. Get horse, place in cross ties, pick up foot, slide bucket or low tub into place, place horse's foot in tub.

2. Retrieve tub from corner of barn, get towel to dry off your face.

3. Refill tub with water and Epsom salts. Shorten cross ties. Pick up horse's foot and place in tub.

4. Retrieve tub from other horse's stall, retrieve horse from his own stall. Find bailing twine to fix broken crosstie. Wrap towel around head to dry hair. Check rapidly bruising toe for signs of breakage.

5. Place rocks in bottom of tub to weigh it down. Snub horse to wall of stall, refill tub with water and Epsom salts. Pick up horse's foot and place in tub. Hold up other front leg.

6. Pick self up off of stall floor. Find place outside where tub has been flung. Retrieve horse from neighbor's garden, pull rocks out of horse's water bucket, call spouse for opinion on whether or not wrist may be broken. Explain multiple times to emergency room staff that you did not fall off the horse.

7. Return to home, enlist spouse to hold horse, hobble hind legs, tie up front leg, fill tub with water and salt, slide tub into place, while pinning horse against wall.

8. Apologize to spouse as they view hoof prints across favorite shirt. Wonder if water and Epsom salts is bad for new wrist cast. Check out burgeoning black eye from broken hobbles. Retrieve horse from cattle farm across the road. Share laugh with cattle farmer about how fast horse can move on only three legs.

9. Go to grocery store to purchase ice packs, ibuprofen, more Epsom salts, and scotch.

10. Call a horse trainer and ask him to come over and show you how to soak a foot. Pour self tall glass of scotch while waiting.

Thank you for the laugh!

There was a thread like this (except they ended up in the emergency room) about a $5K chicken coop and the misuse of a circular saw.

Have you seen the one about how to give a cat a pill? That one is hilarious!

HAHAHAHA that is hysterical! Luckily I've not had that experience with my big guy. He stands like a champ with his dinner plate sized hoof in a bucket. :)

Lol after that, mine then consists of

"tye rubber boot to horses leg and watch as horse plays with rubber, splashing himself in the face with epsom salt/water, and proceeds to run you over"
"retrieve horse from neighbours front porch, duct tape boot to horse, tie horse to steel poles."
"give up when horse wrecks boot, has duct tape wrapped around neck and has put dent in your car door that was across the road."
"thank the heavens you drove because you can't walk after being trampled"

Ahh the joys of horse ownership

One of my mares won't keep her hoof out of the water! Just about everytime she gets a drink out of the trough, she feels the need to splash the water around all over herself and anyone standing close by. When you tell her to knock it off, she looks at you like "what???? Huh????"

funny, hoof, horse, joke
