    Yeah, I hope to someday write a tongue-in-cheek journal article like this - the reproductive ecology of unicorns or something...

    They need to check into stick horse barrel racing!

    THAT is fraught with problems when those kids miss the turn, parents at the last minute yelling "go the other way, the other way!" and kid and horse run into the barrels, ouch!

    "During the study period, only one child presented with injury due to this endangered species. However, it was later learned that the horse head had been adopted by the child and kept as a pet in the left nostril. Unfortunately for the child, its hard shiny skin produced a foreign-body reaction and the creature had to be removed. It was reintroduced to the wild by the hospital garbage disposal contractors."

    A helmet saved my life.

    2014 goal: learn to ride like TheHorseProblem, er, a barn rat!

    I too have fallen victim to Springbottom ferus. It was a sad day at the playground.
