The best mistakes are the ones in which you don't get hurt and that you can laugh about

OOOH it so sucks to make a dumb mistake and a/have all your friends see it, b/get soaking wet in the beaver pond, c/have to sit for days/weeks on the special pillow and get reminded every time you sit down that you may have done something dim.......I soooo relate! Hope you get over being sore soon and I know you'll never do that again!

So very true PHM! I'm so proud of Walka for obeying me for as long as he possibly could, until that horse eating limb tried to grab him. In my heart, I'm sure he expected me to stay with him and wanted no harm to come to me, but I think landing in that pond put things in perspective for me.

DA, I have a very healthy sense of humor and a good dose of appreciation for the ridiculous, so while my "ego" was a bit bruised (and my behind definitely was), I 'm glad a few dear friends got to enjoy the show! When I'm very old, and probably not wiser, that is one memory that will give me a good chuckle!

Ps. DA, I even brought my special pillow with me on two kayak outings. Put it in a garbage bag so it wouldn't get wet and swallowed my pride so as not to miss out on some good times with friends and hubby!

LOL, I've been there! I went on a ride with my old QH who was still shod and hit shale and a steep slope. Stupid me for not getting down and checking the footing when all I could see was leaves. Next thing I know we're sliding for the edge of the cliff and it was about 100 feet straight down. I was praying we'd both break our necks so we wouldn't either one suffer. I still don't know where the tree came from that stopped us. We all swear that tree wasn't there when Lucky and I started to slide, but there it was and it had a perfect Y yoke and caught Lucky and held him so I could climb off. I turned him around and let him go back to the top of the incline and started trying to climb. All my friends could see was leaves flying, and heard me scritch scritch scritching as I shuffled up the slope and then they'd hear me sliding back. 1 foot up, 5 feet back. Took me a WHILE to climb that slope. I was sore for DAYS after that little escapade, taught me to get off and LOOK HARD before going out into unknown footing. I also pulled his shoes when we got home and have never had another shod trail horse.

And, yup, it's funny NOW but I think that was the scariest trail minute I've ever had.

Good grief DA! I do believe your guardian angel was busy growing a tree in the nick of time!

You'll definitely be enthralling the oldies at the nursing home when the time comes. I can only hope you or someone much like yourself will be in the same one with me so we can swap "stories"!

Like you, I also keep barefoot horses for a variety of reasons, one being we have much ledge and also bogs that will suck off a shoe fast. Got tired of replacing shoes, and fortunately the horses had great feet. So, barefoot it is.
