What a wonderful day, or it was till I got kicked. I was trying to take off a horses sheet which I do everyday and he was a little edgy today. So I was telling him he is okay and went to undo the back belly strap and wham. He cow kicked out and got me right in the knee. Thankfully it wasn't full blown and besides a little bruising and swelling I am fine. I am not sure what the issue was. Yesterday when I went to check under his blanket to see if he was too hot he was kinda funny, but didn't try to kick. I took his first layer off this morning without issue. The only thing I can think of which I guess was stupid of me was I threw him his lunch and was then trying to take his sheet off. I had done it with all the horses prior to this without issue. I think he just want to get to his lunch and maybe felt like I was blocking him from it. I have certainly removed and blanketed him while he was eating before.
Ugg who knows. I guess no matter what a horse should stand to get their sheet or blanket removed or put on. From now on I will just put a halter, which yes yes I should have been doing in the first place, on him when blanketing or unblanketing him. He usually is a pretty sweet horse.
Definitely makes you realize what horses are capable of and how dangerous something as simple as blanketing can turn.
I love cats, I love every single cat....
So anyway I am a cat lover And I love to run.
