Me, not my horse:)
I was feeding Cartman his beet pulp and electrolyte mash this evening after a relaxing 2 hour trail ride. I'd noticed some of the dreaded bot fly eggs on his front legs in our pre-ride grooming session but hadn't had time to scrape them all off. So, I decided to do a quick scrape job as he ate his grain.
Stupid me, I leaned over to get some on the inside of his left front leg, just as the dogs tore off after a neighbor dog. C isn't a big spook but he basically spooked in place- with his front legs flying out and smacked me right in the head. I went rolling across the stall. Ouch.
It swelled up into a goose egg immediately but no dizziness or anything so I think its just going to be sore.
Apparently I should have left my helmet on tonite!
