Ouch! Well I'm glad you toughed through it but it might have helped to ice it huh :/

Glad you're alright though.. broken bones would not be a good outcome!

Well, my bad toe keeps re-breaking since Brock jumped on it. I can just be crossing the street and step off it wrong and all the little bits go crunch and crack Still, I've broken so many bones when not riding I think I'm just a bit crumbly...

About a week before I fell off I had my foot stepped on XD The nail is half off on the big toe and the tip of the bone was compressed. But nothing too bad. Hurt like hell though and I still rode on it (which I wish I hadn't since it ached like nothing else).

Ow ow ow!!! Freak people out by flapping the nail though, it's the only benefit. My little sister had a door slam on her toe once, left the nail hanging by a bit of skin. She held us to ransom for weeks by making us do stuff under the threat of her flapping her toenail *EEK*

I haven't had any major issues yet with my feet being stepped on, had some near misses, but have been lucky so far. My sister hasn't been so lucky she was babysitting a neighbors horse for a week and he stepped on her foot. I wasn't there so I have no idea what happened, but it broke three toes and she had to have surgery, and steel rods. She is still nervous around horses now. :(

Wow!

Hey don't be nervous, be careful. That is part of the thing with horses.. they're heavy and you may get hurt. But that's life.. we don't plan on falling down the stairs or stubbing our toes.

Ah...and this is why I enjoy having two miniatures so much.

You'd be suprised how much it can hurt though xD Sour is only about 225 pounds, but that much pressure on one very small 3" space isn't much fun.

I have yet to be seriously stepped on by a full grown horse, but Peppin did accidently step on me three weeks ago. He's just gotten to the point of letting us lead him quiety and I made the mistake of letting him graze on a leadline while I stood watching a few friends toss a football in one of the fields. Next thing you know, the football is coming towards us, flops to the ground and starts rolling towards Peppin.

Not to be the scardy cat in the situation- Peppin merely leaps an astounding 3 feet in the air (ok..it was more like a foot and a half.), jumps over the ball, and calmly lands to resume his grazing...with his foot firmly on my three smaller toes. So here I am squealing and thumping on his blind side's shoulder while he continues grazing and tipping an ear at me like 'its all good Ma, I still remember all of our desensatizing training. I'm not moving a muscle.'

Note to self...teach yielding to pressure BEFORE desensatizing.
