Any equine related scars?

So who out there has some horse related scars? I have two, one on my left shoulder, and now one on my left wrist. Both surgery scars from repaired fractures. Just out of a curiosity (and to reassure myself I'm not alone lol) who else has permanent badges of equine dedication?

Mine are finally fading but I have two on my shoulders from being thrown. I always tuck and roll, well I tuck and rolled right into bushes, dead sticks and sand. I had deep gashes across both shoulders from it. Thankfully no surgeries for me yet haha.

I definitely bear the scars of my passion, haha.

I have scars around my palms and between my thumbs and pointer fingers from my first lesson with why you don't use nylon lead ropes. I had the skin of both palms burned and partially torn off when my mare flew backward out of a trailer completely unexpectedly.

My helmet has scars from a hoof and a bunch of sharp rocks that would have been my head after a bad fall. Im so happy I wore a helmet that day.

I have internal scars too! Lol I have a crooked tailbone from falling off when I was little and a couple funky spots on my ribs where they were cracked after a horrible fall.

I ended up with a strange scar from being bucked off a green horse into the round pen fence. After it happened, I was more worried about the bruising than what I thought was just a scrape but it has been two years and the scar from that "scrape" is very noticeable. It looks like my forearm is permanently dirty and is not attractive at all.

All in all, it could have been worse!

I just checked, it's gone!!! I used to have a slight dent at the top of my thigh from a kick many years ago, other than that, nothing that didn't heal up & not leave a mark, yay.

It's a pretty color! Don't worry, that one will fade pretty easily.

From a rock.

You can see the indent of the hoof in the middle of the helmet.

A few years ago I was kicked by the brattiest, snottiest, little demon hafflinger pony ever (can you tell I was not a fan of this pony). Well pony (named Thumper, anyone else think that's ironic?) packed quite a punch and I was at optimal kicking range as he swung right around before I knew what was happening. He got me right in my side, just above my hip bone, and partially on my forearm as I had my arm on my side.

Stinking pony left me with a massive hematoma in my side (about the size of a dollar bill) it's no longer hard, but still faintly discolored. Also, small dot scars on my arm from where the nails on his shoe put holes in the muscle.

Did I mention I'm not a huge fan of Thumper? Lol
