You Are Responsible for Your Own Feet

Rain over the last two days has turned the corral into a mudhole again, reducing the feeding area to a dry patch in the shelter.

When you show up with hay, the horses will converge on you, not because they’re mean but because they’re hungry, increasing the risk of foot injury.

There are four of them in this corral and they don’t pay much attention to the location of my feet when they’re exploring the pile for the best spot.

The front feet of an average horse carry around 300 pounds each, with 200 pounds on each of the rear feet, give or take.

In the early days, I had steel-toed boots but when they wore out I never replaced them.
