Am I really brave enough to post pictures of my legs?
I've concluded the bruises are hoof marks. I have a couple more behind each knee which are pretty much impossible to photograph (I tried). Yeah, I was stiff for the last couple of days. There is still some swelling. But it's a long way from the heart so unless a blood clot takes me out, I think I'll live.
Do you know how hard it is to get a decent picture of your own legs when your legs aren't really that pretty to begin with? And have you ever tried to take pictures of your own body parts? I could have asked one of the boys to take the picture, but they would think it weird & wonder why. Then I would have to tell them that I wanted to post it on the internet to show all of you. And they would think that even more weird. They just wouldn't understand that horse people share our bang-ups like a badge of honor.
When someone at work was showing their cat scratch, I trumped her by pulling up my pant leg and exclaiming that "This is what happens when you are dragged by a horse."
On a slightly more serious note, I have been pondering the whole accident & you know what? I was really, really lucky.
