Unexpected Agony

Sometimes life throws us a curveball and I got one major league on the night of July 4th.  This lovely mare kicked me literally to the ground and broke my left arm.  It was not intentional, in the field at night right before a large summer storm.  But nonetheless, the damage was done.  Let's say that I seen this mare up close and personal.

Surgery is this week as they can't set the arm, so we will be offline a bit.  Thank goodness for drugs! But before I succumb to the doctors a great surprise is in store so stay tuned.......


  1. Terrible news :(. Hope you feel better soon.

  2. Hope you heal quickly and completely, and hope you have help in the mean time!

  4. Horse. Unpredictable. Sorry to hear of your injury and hope you are able to get back to your writing soon. I am sure you will miss this among other things :)

    I am a horseman of 40+ years. This year I was accidentally run over by a lovely quiet horse when his owner went to catch him! I was stepped on and knocked out for 5+ mins. I still find it hard to believe.

    Happy healing and good luck with the surgery.
