While feeding treats I got bit by the horse i was handling and have lacerations and fracture of my pinkie finger. i'm on anti-biotics now and see the ortho guy tomorrow. She is normally a very sweet and calm horse to handle, and has only ever nipped before the farrier. There was no signs of astress or anxiety before she bit me, and none afterwards either. but here's my question: Once she had a hold of my finger, is there a technique I should have used to get her her to release it?? I just calmly spoke to her and tried to distract her with a piece of straw - all the while she was just crunching down on it and working her hold on it more. Just about the time i felt like i was gonna throw up, she let it go and just walked away. Again, I'm sure she wasn't trying to be intentional or mean, but boy - what a grip them teeth have!!
