    I'm so sorry this happened to you and your beloved horse. It sounds like he's in good hands tonight. Hope you're not alone and that things look better in the morning.

    Prayers and best wishes for your horse and for *you.* The blood is scary...but face and head injuries sometimes bleed more and look worse than they actually are. We're all hoping everything turns out to just have looked worse than it is...please keep us updated.

    omgih, I am sending you the biggest jingles that ever existed in the whole world. My goodness, what an awful thing to have happen and to witness.

    As I was driving to a clinic early in the morning last year, I came upon a fresh accident of horses who had gotten out of their paddocks and had been hit by a car. It broke my heart and I cried for the rest of the drive. I cannot imagine what you are going through having seen it happening and to your own horse, no less.

    many jingles to you - so horrific that you had to see it, and so lucky that he still lives. I have seen bad things and the replay of them in my mind, while they are still fresh, is just awful.

    Take whatever you need to let the shock have time to wear off - thankfully, at this point you don't have to add grief at his death to the mix. Please keep us updated on his and your progress.....

    Lots more jingles from Florida for you and your poor horse!

    Years ago, a mare I raised was hit by a truck just months after I sold her. I was called to the scene when the vet recognized her; when I got there, thankfully he had already eased her over the rainbow bridge. That still qualifies as one of the worst days of my life.

    It sounds like your horse has a good chance of recovering and is in good hands. I know it's heart-wrenching just the same. Take care of yourself, he will need you!

    Jingles for you and you poor pony. That is awful!

    Can I tell you a funny related story to perhaps cheer you up?

    I had the opposite thing happen. My horse hit a car. He bucked a girl off on the trail and ran home. At a dead gallop, he hit a Mercedes at a stop sign. (I guess he can't read well enough to obey traffic signs) Aparently he flipped right over the hood and kept on running. Imagine being that poor driver! And then having to report that incident to your insurance company! Fortunately the majority of the damage was just to the car.

    I really hope your baby is OK. How frightening for everyone involved!

    Lots of jingles from KY.

    Sounds like he is in good hands.
    Hope you got some sleep, he needs you to be fresh and strong.

    Jingles for your horse and jingles for the car's driver, who probably was shaken up quite a bit, too. Everytime I read posts about loose horses running amuck, I am thankful I have liability insurance in place. It is so easy for something like this to happen no matter how careful you are and the results can be devastating.

    Hope you are feeling better today - I'm so sorry to hear what happened. I'm glad your horse will be ok.

    That is my biggest fear - loose livestock on the road getting hit by a motor vehicle....

    Huge Georgia Jingles for you and your fella.

    When I was in college, one of our school horses hit a car as he galloped up the driveway - the driver of the car (our barn manager) was trying to pull in front of the gate to the busy road so that he wouldn't get out there and get hit! He was bumped and bruised, but fared well. I hope the same goes for your boy.

    OMG, how positively horrifying! Lots of jingles to you and your horse. I know it would take a long time for me to get over something like that.

    Please keep us posted on how the horse AND you are doing. We'll be thinking about your both.
