Cool Have you ever noticed...

Have you ever noticed that "horse people" aren't entirely "right in the head"? Yesterday, I got stepped on twice (once on each foot), had my thumb crunched (my own fault), and got soaked to the skin standing in the rain hand grazing my mare because she hasn't had pasture in at least a year. All of that and I still count yesterday as a great day

"Normal" people also think it is entirely bizarre for you to go, "Oh yeah, my toenails are almost completely grown back and they look entirely normal!" because apparently getting stepped on hard enough to break off nails is strange.. Sorry your dog doesn't weigh 1200lbs with hard feet.

My husband looked at me like I was crazy when I responded to his "How was the barn?" with "I had a blast!" after I had chronicled my mishaps for him

That's one of the many reasons I love this forum! I feel "normal" amongst you all! No explanations necessary, it's all understood!

My toenails aren't smooth anymore... they're like waves in the ocean... but my fingernail is finally grown back and I don't know where that bruise came from... I finally picked that hay splinter from between my toes....

LOL, it's so strange what some people consider normal. I currently have blistered hands, a lovely scar forming on the back of one hand from an argument with the barbed wire (apparently, it didn't want to be removed as the fencing), a plethora of mysterious bruises and a sore back from a fall.

Yet that's all completely normal and my day wouldn't be complete without it LOL.

My hands are completely callused from the wheelbarrow, my fingernails will never grow in completely, I have a scar under my lip from a horse's tooth going through it and a healing bruise from a pasture kick, and my boots all resemble traces from the barn. But, like smrobs said, it makes my life complete!

I just thought it might be a little bizarre that I was so tickled to have received horse related injuries I've been away from horses for almost 4 years...

I'm the same way Dixie, been without a horse too long, have had mine back for almost a year now, loving every painful moment of it!
