Last time I remember was about 9 years ago exactly. I remember because Mr Indy was 3 and going in his first show, the famous Mother's day one (yup, he's in it this year again, a tradition). He was being a stinker about me clipping his left ear, the right one he didn't mind. I was tired of playing around, & his ear was beginning to look like a drunk rat was chewing on it so it was twitch time to finish the job. I called my daughter over to clip his ear while I held the twitch, as I applied it and a nano second before his endorphines kicked in & the zoning out started, he took a step, right on top of my foot. Then he was a zombie, my daughter looks at me, I yell, "JUST HURRY UP!". I swear it took an hour for her to do one ear, she kept saying sorry but I have to even out your clipper tracks, and I am yelling I don't care, just hurry up! In reality it only took her about 2 minutes, but it was enough to leave a perfect purple/blue hoof mark on top of my foot. To be fair, he didn't have all his weight on that foot, it was step forward and landed where it landed, on my foot! UPDATE - he now lets me clip both ears without a twitch, sometimes when he fusses about it, I just have to show him the twitch & he stops fidgeting, smart horse.
