Oh my, I know that it isn't funny, but I laughed out loud. Considering this happened back in March, I'm sure your cheek is feeling much better now!

I was also injured. She hurt my feelings and assaulted my banana. I turned my head for a second and half of it had gone!!! 😞 I hope you were insured for your accident...

We had a John Deere ATV. It was a 5 wheeler, one wheel at the front and four under a trolley behind. They weren't really designed for field work, more for golf courses and the like.
This bike was so useful but being theynwerent made anymore difficult to get the parts. The brakes were useless and even when the garage fired new ones, one fell off and the other didn't really work well.

It was a wet and windy day. I had been to our top field and fed the cattle and had the sheep feed on the back. As it was wet I would stand on the wide footplate. Coming down from the top field the throttle jammed open which meant that our top speed increased to about 15 m.p.h. downhill and with a following wind.

I zoomed (if that speed could be called a zoom) through thenyard and headed for the sheep field. The gate was without a catch to it so I would jut barge it open and go through.

The sheep had heard me coming and several had gathered around the gate.

I barged the gate open, however a ewe got in the way and it didn't open far enough and the corner of the trolley caught the gate causing the bike to check hard and swerve. I wasn't expecting it.

I went straight over the handlebars, the bike freed itself, went straight over me and took off across the field. Half the sheep followed the bike the others stayed, I would like to say stood by me but truth be known trampled across me.

The bike went through three lines of electro tape before stopping at the bottom fence. I had to walk to the bottom with the sheep knocking into memwondering where theormfoodmwas.

The bike never hurt me at all, sheep's feet did!

What a great scene for Shaun The Sheep.

Recently.

Was grazing both horses on lead ropes on the front lawn when my neighbors came walking by wheeling their stroller (they have a toddler). So we were chatting, the horses were grazing, all was bucolic, until Brooke got a fly in her ear or something, flung her head up, and knocked me to the ground. So much for showing off my horses ... wouldn't have happened if I'd been properly paying attention of course.

Gave me a righteous shiner. This is four days old. Looked even worse before.

It looked dramatic, and I got to say, "My horse punched me in the face!" but it never really hurt much.

@Avna I joined that club one time. A few months after I got my mare, we were just having a nice peaceful ride. Then I have no idea what happened or how she did it, but I was flat on my face on the ground. That part wasn't a problem - felt silly, but been there done that. Was still holding the reins and felt her tugging on them, so I figured she was nearby to the side. So I went to glance up and see where she was...and bam! I got a hoof to the face. There wasn't a lot of force behind it, so she might have clipped me with the front of a hoof as she was grazing...which isn't really a better thought to have in mind. But I got a black eye, a semicircle on my cheek and a puffy eyebrow full of dirt. Punched in the face is right. She knocked some sense into me.

No diet, no hoof. No hoof, no horse. No horse is not an option!
