So, all these years of wearing sandals around horses finally caught up with me a couple nights ago. After a long night ride (Tennessee Walkers are amazing), we were just putting the horses back in the pasture when one of herd bumped into the horse I was letting go, forcing her to sidestep onto my big toe, then put all of her weight onto it to turn and trot off. I don't think it's broken, but it's nasty looking and hurts to bend and walk on. I'm soaking it now in hot water with sea salt, hoping it doesn't continue to get worse. I know I've seen others here post pictures of themselves wearing sandals around horses, so I just thought I'd chime in and say OUCH... be careful!
