Reminds me of the scene from "Hondo" with John Wayne where the kid keeps asking to pet the dog and is told the dog bites. Finally the kid reaches to pet the dog and gets bitten. Mother runs over and asks why he let him pet the dog if he knew it bites. Kids learn by their mistakes, the kid learned the dog bites.


The girl learned flip flops are a bad idea around hooves. I hope she recovers and has minimal physical scarring.

Oh wowwwwww!! Makes my stomach turn and feet hurt. Hard to look at.
What is the extent of damage?? Broken bones, nerve damage?? Just curious. Looks like one of those plastic foot things at the Dr.'s office with the skin removed to see all the insides. Yikes!

Yuck!!!

This is why I ALWAYS wear appropriate footwear when I'm working with my horses. Even if I have to pull on my boots with no socks ... those tootsies are going to have protection on them!

Well, not to be even more graphic but the skin was peeled off the foot...kinda like a banana. They cleaned the flap and replaced it, hoping it will take again. Yes, broken bones and nerve damage as well.

Now that I've recovered from my faint, I'm able to ask: Was the horse shod?
