I have nothing to say other then "da...f...." For serious Kayla... It is always something with you. Now go give Flinty some smooches for me and find that bubble wrap I had you in before.
I know.. poor me never gets a break when it comes to the horses. Had so many good years then BAM.. Ah well just have to hope things get better soon right? lol
Next horse will be a small qh or appendix. Or maybe another TB just because I love them lol. Flint has a brain.. its Tippers the fancy expensively bred warmblood that was born like a mess that doesnt have one lol

And you still know me too well. Once I was home from the hospital thats the first thing I did.. go make them supper then give Flint a huge hug. That big old man still loves snuggles even if he "acts" grumpy and tough lol.

I'd like to believe that Z or Mac would never do that, but under really sudden, explosive pressure, they might run me over. I try to be positioned so they will have somewhere to go other than over me, when I can, but no one can plan for every eventuality. I am glad you are still there to raise your son!
I dont think full impact hard kick right to the face. but for sure a hoof came in contact with my face. Fingers crossed all my teeth are okay through this, there are a couple loose in the front which I have to get checked once my mouth heals a bit more to do so.
Im not mad at my horse. I dont blame him for what he did. Im sure it was something pretty scary. My mom even mentioned there being wasps that have nests on the ground and we actually saw one elsewhere this weekend so even thats possible. Really I have no idea what it was though. Its just scary to experience him reacting like that but now I know he spooks like that right? lol. Hes still a good horse. Sweetest horse (asides from this) that I have ever met.
I think I am so blessed it didnt end up worse and that I am for the most part all okay. This for sure has me on my toes now and more aware of whats going on around us.

Speechless. Glad everything was ok, relatively speaking.

Stuff like this makes me even more angry when I see the Youtubers who encourage people to do silly reckless things with horses for no real purpose - crawling underneath them etc.
We've had a few thread recently on things that happen 'out of the blue' that make you realize that no matter how well we train our horses they are and always will be unpredictable because they aren't robots.
The secret is to always have your eye on the game no matter what - doesn't mean you should be tense and nervous but always expect the unexpected and be ready for it.
Reading your horse takes time - and even then they can take you by surprise
Hope you make a good recovery.

Wow....You're lucky with only those minor injuries. I am also glad that everything turned out alright in the end.
