You know that saying “There’s something about the outside of a horse that’s good for the inside of a man”… I recently had a tumble off my horse, after getting my spur stuck on an electric fence, yeah dumb, I know! He zoomed, I felt like a cartoon character and the next thing you know, I was lying flat on my back, waking up from a little snooze. Hospital with bruised kidney and head injury.
Today a whole week from the little bleep in my fabulous riding career (sarcastic note in voice), I was feeding out and just stopped to listen to said horse “Vin” chomp his hay. He muzzled it around, lazily with his eyes half closed and I thought… this… right now, must be one of my most favourite sounds.
And now I realise that concussion, mothers brain and hangovers are all very similar. You start a story and go off in a complete and utter tangent.
Happy Birthday to all the pretty little horses
