Horse bite

Carson came in from outside crying and I asked him what happened, thinking he'd say he fell off his bike or something, and he tells me he got bit by a horse! It didn't even compute for a second and then Zoe was there saying, "Yeah Mom, the horse bit him on his shoulder!". Horse? What horse? We don't have a horse! So come to find out the kids were all down IN the field next door with the neighbor's wild horses and one decided to try to pick up Carson by his shoulder. Luckily he wasn't hurt too badly, just an ugly horse mouth shaped bruise. Needless to say we have since told the kids it is never a good idea to get inside the field and next to horses without supervision (seriously, is this not obvious?! I guess we forgot to cover that topic...) Anyway, Carson is fine and we had fun calling him Horsebite for a week or so.

OUCH! A great friend once told me, "Sometimes, you have to fall out of a chair a few times before you realize you shouldn't stand up in it in the first place." I guess that sometimes, you have to get bit buy a horse a few times (or once might be enough!) before you realize you shouldn't bother it in the first place. Hee, hee, hee! Oh, that great friend was YOU, by the way ; )

Man, poor Carson! He could have come out of there with much worse! That sort of courage will really take him places someday ;)
