Seriously - Again!?
It happened because I was walking barefoot, but I can't blame this one on a horse: this time, while walking, my foot clipped a table so hard I think I broke my toe again. (Exactly how does one's toe run into a table when one is walking? I have no idea.)
Pati was appalled I was hobbling around (on my heel) and that I didn't have my toe on ice. "It looks broken!"
"Uh - yea, it feels broken."
"You should NOT be walking on it, and you should have ice on it!"
Well, yes, I suppose I should have, but it didn't hurt as much as when I (possibly) broke my adjacent toe last June by sticking my sandalled foot under a horse's hoof.
But I can kind of ignore it, because we aren't going on any rides in the next few days, since four of Steph's horses and Carol's horse just did 50 or 100 miles of rides at the 2-day Eagle Extreme. I figure with some ice, ibuprofen, and DMSO, and a few days to heal, I can get a shoe on so I can ride.
Dang, I sure hope I didn't hurt that table when I put a dent in it with my toe.
