Ow, Ow Ow!

Fri Jun 30, 2006 6:48 am

I can't possibly be the unluckiest person on a.net, so I made this thread to (hopefully) prove that I am not  grumpy 

Well, I just recovered from spraining my foot because a horse stepped on it when I took it in from the grazing pen... fine, dandy.

Yesterday, i had a riding lesson which was also fine and dandy. I decided to stay around to help the horsekeeper out a little, muck out, feed and let the horses out to the pen. Also went fine and dandy. I helped mucking, getting more hay, etc.

Some of the girls decided to go riding and asked me if I wanted to help them groom one of the horses, put a saddle on it and so on. I said yes, and started working...

THE #�%&/ THING BIT ME!!!  mad  Got a hold of my thumb and just held on to it  eek  When it finally let go, I had a huge bruise and a little wound which I had to clean...

I finished, the girls went off with the horse, and I was asked to take the horses in for lunch...

I got one of the ridingschool horses by the halter, I went to get a rope on it, and WHACK! He laid his ear back and just stomped on my foot- that had just healed..  crying 

Needless to say, the foot is neatly wrapped up in bandages and I'm back on crutches... and I'm wondering WHY it's NEVER my own horse that hurts me, but the bloody mean riding school horses... I'm starting to think they're just plain nasty  Yeah sure

So a.netters... what's your most recent injury? And please tell me it's as bad/worse than mine, luckwise Big grin

Not to make light of your grief but it occurs to me that if cars are causing global warming it is probably worth it just to get rid of horses.

Most recent injury? Mucking out a culvert all silted up from winter floods. Jammed my ring finger against the metal end of the culvert splitting a chunk out of the nail clear up past Oregon! I said a couple of naughty words and kept on working. Bled a good deal too. I hope not to do such a thing again.

Not recent, but when I was 14, I was on my school's football (soccer for the Yanks) team, and was pretty much the best player on the team, even if I do say so myself. I was the designated penalty taker and I'd never missed a penalty. We'd won the regional inter-school cup 2 years on the trot, and in my 3rd and alst year, I was nominated as team captain.

First game of the season and I was side-swiped by some arsehole defender from the other school, his studs embedding themselves in my right calf, and causing me a triple break in my right ankle. I missed the rest of the season, and the team lost in the final after missing a penalty.

Two years after that, and I'd taken up Squash and gotten quite good at it, playing in a local league. I got through to the semi-finals of the local league comp, and rebroke the same ankle while practising the night before the semi-final.

Three years after that, I was in my car heading along the A40 near Oxford, just past Witney, and I got hit head-on by a drunk driver. I was mostly fine, but my right ankle was broken again, but it was more of a shattering than a break. The doctors decided to put pins in it. After two months in plaster, the doctors realised that it wasn't setting right, and so had to rebreak it to reset the pins and set it right again.

I've never played football or squash since, as it hurts quite a lot after a while when running on it. And when the weather is cold or damp, it hurts like a mofo.

It is obvious that word has gotten around the horse community that you are persona non grata. You must atone for this be travelling to the steppes of Mongolia and meeting for meditation and spirituality lessons with the descendents of the original Mongolian horsemen. Only then shall you be welcome among the Equinity.

Or you could try goldfish, as suggested above. Those seem pretty safe. And get better soon.  Smile

Sounds like you are very unlucky Jap, perhaps consider buying a lotto ticket because I think your quota of bad luck must have run out  Wink

As for injuries, well I've never properly broken anything *touch wood* but probably the most painful injury I've had was when I was at home alone looking after my parents place in September 2004. They'd gone away leaving me at home and were slightly on tenterhooks about it because they'd gone away earlier in the month leaving me home alone and the garage got broken into and $20,000 of stuff was stolen!
Anyway, I was working in my Dad's office one night and was going to the kitchen and I managed to catch my big left toe on one of the most fasteners that holds carpet down under doorframes (if that makes sense). My toe was flicked back very rapidly somehow and I heard a click. Didn't feel too much pain but the thing swelled up like a balloon that evening almost doubling in size and going bright purple. By bedtime I was hobbling around a little and went to bed although couldn't sleep as whenever my toe moved as I rolled in my sleep I was woken by the pain. Awoke in agony ready to go to work and could barely move. I called my neighbour who lives about 300yrds away and hobbled down there in about 30mins and she took me to the hospital. Was told it was broken and there was little I could do. Went to work wearing a suit with a dress shoe and wearing a flip flop on the other foot!! It cleared up pretty fast and within a week I was moving around just fine.

I have four cats, sometimes it's difficult to keep them tame.

Jap, I love horses for their beauty, but I'm scared like a Bajeeeeezus of them and they feel it.

I rode one in Dominican Republic, you know, the medium ones, and mine thought: " I'm the boss" and bit evey single horse in the group that tried to overtake us. Then I thought: don't mess with the puppy

I want to ride on one, you know, like in a closed space, but... Thats my fear? Irreasonable, I know, but it's there...

Anyway, my latest (bad) injury was a couple of months ago (yay, it's been awhile, looks like my streak of bad luck is over...). I rolled over my bare toe with my desk chair. Ripped the nail right off. Hurt like hell. Bled like the river styx too...

It's actually true Big grin To horses, we're nothing more than predators, no matter how close we get and how much we get them to trust us  Wink So it'd only be natural if they tried to kill us all the time (I saw the farrier get kicked in the bum yesterday, actually  Wink He was ok afterwards, just went mental on the horse)- it's actually quite impressive how much they tolerate/trust us  Silly

One real problem is that horses have the memory and span of attention of a goldfish.

If a horse bites you and you hit it with a hammer it has already forgotten that it bit you and does not know why you hit it with a hammer. What hammer?

If you catch a horse in the act of biting you and hit it with a hammer you might give it an aversion to biting you. This is because their analytical powers are such that it starts out to take a bite then remembers that you taste like being hit with a hammer.

What hammer?

Don't get the idea from this that I don't like horses. I'm a guy. That is why I don't like horses. Guys don't like horses.

What hammer?

Hmm, I don't know... they're able to remember people and they remember everything you teach them- if you teach it not to bite you (properly, not hitting it- if it bites you again, it's in self defense because it thinks you'll hurt it...), it'll also remember.

Also, they tend to remember surroundings EXACTLY as they were... I'll give you an example.

I had to take my horse to the paddock. She went in there fine, but when I returned to bring her back into the stables, they were arranging a dirt path nearby, and thus, a pile of dirt had formed, by the paddock. Well, I grabbed her, and we started walking towards the stables- the second she saw the pile of dirt, she slammed her hooves into the ground, and just stood there, frozen, until I reassured her that the big, bad pile of dirt wasn't going to hurt her Big grin

She also have the same problem when someone's put jumping equipment that's not usually there up in the riding pen.

She also remembers the place she threw Lee off quite well- the second we get to the EXACT spot, she speeds up a little.

So saying horses have poor memory is not really true  Wink

Oh, don't get me wrong. The hammer is not for training. The hammer is only to get their attention for the lesson at hand.

Animals do have a remarkable memory for things that affect their lives, not ours. We had a dog on the ranch that remembered every single place on fifty miles of backroads where he'd ever seen a deer. He would always be on the correct side of the pickup to see if there was still one there.

I might have a little more respect for horses if I hadn't had such a time keeping my sister's animals from running INTO the burning barn.

Oh, I'm sure it's worse: I dislocated my right shoulder back in April, and to this day, some two months later, it still pains me to sleep every night because there's no possible laying position that gives it enough support...My arm either falls over the side of my body when I lay on the left side (putting a pillow under it doesn't help because it puts unneccesary pressure on the joint, same as if I lay on my back), or I'm laying on the joint if I'm sleeping to the right.

Oh, and it's still so weak, that I can't even push open a door with my right arm...

So yeah, I feel your pain  Wink

I got bitten by one of these riding school horses. i was a kid (something like 12) and we were making fun of a horse that had a pretty bad reputation. The horse was in his box, his head coming out of it. Somehow he suddenly threw his head towards me, his jaws open and his upper teeth hit my brow.
I think i had a couple of stitches. Have been careful around horses since.

I don't think that I've been unlucky that often, although the occasions that come to mind all envolve bikes;

Snapped my wrist in the spinning front wheel after getting a branch jammed in the back wheel which sent me into a skid and crash causing me to fly out of the saddle and onto the road.

I Got thrown several meters over the handlebars into a very spiky hedge after a Pheasant flew into my front wheel, jamming itself in my forks and killing itself in the process. Removing the bits of the stupid bird afterwards was not pleasant.

Few months back I clipped a tree trunk which was hidden in grass and once again the bike stopped and I carried on, falling onto a nice shale/slate track. I landed on my right knee and then did a perfect forward roll and stood back up again, then noticed the bits of stone sticking out of my leg. Of course I had to be in some damp little Devon valley where I couldn't get a signal so had to cycle miles home with my leg running red with blood. Ironically upon leaving the house I'd commented that I'd managed 556 miles without falling off banghead 

The rest of my accidents is just my own stupidity getting the better of me, don't try putting your fingers in the blade box of a lawnmover when its still running, you tend to come out with a shorter finger or two ouch

Alright, I have ridden double-black diamond on both my snowboard and snowblades and have done jumps and rails and all that stuff, right? So, I'm on an easy, green circle hill, teaching my friend how to snowblade, and I hit a blindhill. Torn ACL, crutches till' March, still have brace on.

Other incident was 4th grade, playing doubles tennis in lessons. Ball hits center line, I call it, partner winds up, and the next thing I remember is laying on the court and my nose swelled up 2x its size.
Well I believe it all is coming to an end. Oh well, I guess we are gonna pretend.

My most recent injury is a severely grazed arm...

At school, a couple of people were placying catch, with their bags up against a tree. So me being the shortest and lightest in the class, got to be the unlucky person who got a leg up to put one of these people's bags in the tree.

I had one person on each foot, I successfully got the bag in the tree, but the kid on my left foot decided to run away, i fell down and grazed the underside of my arm...

Just as if it had never happened, I've got to say I was lucky that it didn't chip the bone - basically just skinned my middle finger from beneath the nail and took a lump of flesh off. Casulty wrapped it in a seaweed bandage for three weeks - which stank like hell, but after only a couple more weeks it was fully healed. Neighbours thought I was mad though, by the time I got back from the hospital I had to finish mowing the rest of the lawn in the dark silly

Sorry to hear that. Maybe you should stop interacting with horses from now on. It seems like there's bad chemistry between you and them.

On the contraire Big grin

These two horses were bloody nuts and kick/bite everyone... The one who stepped on my foot before did it by accident  Wink

And I own a horse, so I can't just stop interacting with them  Silly She hasn't hurt me either, thankfully.

She has strange ideas about some people (normally the quiet, inconfident types, but that's not exactly you)- but if you lung her first, you're good to go (AND you learn something new)  bigthumbsup 

... as long as I can have her in a leash at first, you're good to go  Silly I guarantee  Smile

Most recent injury was rather stupid. I was lifting weights over my head on a machine, and I loaded it with too much weight. On the seventh repetition, my rotator cuff tore. It took about nine months of rehab to get it better.

Jap, BMIFlyer-I have been bucked off horses three times. Broke my arm and my ankle doing it. I do not want to ride horses again. Lee, I feel your pain!

After I got rammed in the back (and sent flying through the air) by a pony when I was 11 years old, I gave up on the equestrian fantasy.

Strangely enough, it was the farm's donkey that I got along with the best. He was very gentle with me. Perhaps he knew that, in the long run, I would be more stubborn than him.
Up, up and away!

oh jap, I had a black day for my horse on 1st Jul... I was so stupid, riding her outside where I dont know it and she stepped into a hole. Now one of her feet is swollen and terribly injured and in the other one the tendon is ruined  Sad((( so I think I can say goodbye to showjumping. If only I didnt go to the damn field!
there is no coincidence

So a.netters... what's your most recent injury? And please tell me it's as bad/worse than mine, luckwise

I don't know about too recent, but it does hurt everyday, and I wear an adjustable knee brace at work most of the time, but 7 years ago I took a puck in the knee after hockey practice. Destroyed most of the knee cap, luckily enough, no real damage to the ligaments (Thank God), but about half of the cartilage is gone. Arthritis is a real bitch, especially already at 22. Kind of sucks...I was in the Top 5 in goal scoring, assists, ratings, and PIM ( Big grin ) in my league in the Northwest USA. Good enough that I had dreams of the NHL... They were shattered along with my knee that one night. I tried to come back the next season, but I had lost some speed and some strength. Still scored a bit though, but I wasn't anywhere near what I had used to be. Dreams die hard...  sigh 
This isn't where I parked my car...
