Ouch, at least she wasn't mean about it.. that's gotta be the heaviest toe stepper yet, though!

My guy has stepped on my foot once in the 3 years I've had him.

He's a heavy guy, probably around 1600lbs. We were at a show, I was letting him graze after his last class of the day. The grassy area was in view of one of the arenas, so I was off in lala land watching the other horses warm up. He took a step forward, and managed to land on the outside edge of my right foot. I got a nasty bruise, and to this day ( over 2 years later) my skin is still red & blotchy in that area only. Doesn't hurt though.

Ahh yes, the wandering grazing foot. Well I'm glad it doesn't hurt you anymore :)

My old mare got spooked and reared up while I leading her (first time she had even spooked), and came down right on my left foot. I ended up throwing the lead rope at my mom and yelling take her. She didn't get why, until I fell over trying to pull off my boot, my foot had swelled in less than a minute to the point I couldn't pull my boot off on my own.

Only time I've been stepped on happened on a trail ride.

I dismounted to pick up an empty plastic shopping bag. I stuffed it under one the saddle's flaps. Then I noticed a handy log to get me some height to get back on.

I'm maneuvering Calypso to the log and she starts acting stupid, turning around, I don't know why. I'm staying out her way but there's all sorts of branches and brush so I stop for a fraction of a second to look down and she stepped on my right big toe.

Luckily I always wear boots, the ground was pretty soft, and she picked up her hoof immediately when I punched her with my fist right at the girth.

Toe didn't break, didn't swell up inside the boot, and didn't feel wet (no bleeding). So I got her to the log, got on, and went on my merry way.

I never lost the toenail but to this day (about two months later) there is some dried blood in there.

Funny enough nothing in my foot broke at least nothing that needed any attention. I did go to the hospital to have it x rayed to make sure, the amount of swelling they had a hard time seeing it clearly. I couldn't tie my shoe for a week and it was all colors of the rainbow!

Interesting, well at least it wasn't anything too serious. They can get pretty nasty as I'm sure you know from this thread alone xD

Wow you got off so lucky! And I believe ya.. what foot wouldn't be after that!

Huh, it's so weird so far no one has had any after-effects like mine. My horse must have hit me in just the right place I guess
