Sunday, I was at my old guy's barn doing stalls. I was putting horses out, and some random guy was in the barn throwing stuff away. So he's up on a platform above the tack room tossing stuff down. The noise is understandably upsetting horses, so I say "hey, could you stop throwing stuff until I get everyone out? The noise is freaking out all the horses." I'm taking a horse out, and after we leave the barn there's this unholy CRASH. Horse takes off, dragging me several steps before pulling free. I skid on gravel like a baseball player sliding into home. Hand, elbow, and hip on my left side are all torn up.
Now, I have a temper. It very rarely comes out, but when I get hurt because someone does something stupid, my temper comes out in full force. Stupid random guy got screamed at... I'd give an example, but I try to keep this blog family friendly, so I'll just say picture a very angry sailor and triple it, and that's about the language I was using. Which maybe isn't the best response, but oh well. I got dragged by a 1200 pound horse and found rocks in my underwear. I feel my anger is justified.
So now my whole body hurts. My right arm doesn't really work very well; I think the muscles in my forearm got strained. Neck, shoulders, arms, back, ribs, etc. My thigh is bruised and scraped. Everything just hurts.
Which is really annoying, because I got out of work early yesterday. I'll be out early today. And I don't know if I'll be able to ride.
So if you ever want to see me explode in a raging storm of swearing and fury, do something to get me hurt.
I hate stupid people.
