DD had taken the gelding for a walk leaving the mare in the paddock. She was having a total temper tantrum that she got left behind so I walked to the fence and was getting ready to drop a flake of hay in for her. She came running up to the fence so rather than drop it, I thought I would hold it and let her eat it from my hand so I could pet her. Just as the little pissant gets to me, she makes a fast 90 degree turn and kicks both hind feet into my face. Thank the lord, I was far enough back that all I got was a face full of mud that came flying off when she kicked out. And I do mean a face full! Completely covered the lenses of my sunglasses, down my shirt, in my hair. I screamed of course cause that mud stung like *h.e. you know* what when it hit me. So, I know she didnt miss my jaw by much. I just wanted to ship her to the nearest glue factory or dog food processor at that point. Then she proceded to scream at me the whole time the gelding was out. He of course just totally ignored her. She stormed up and down the paddock, hootin' and hollerin', kicking up her legs and acting like a total snit. I would have lunged her just for spite if it wasnt so muddy from all the stinkin' rain yesterday. Brat! PS...Thank you God for allowing me to be in the right place at the right time to avoid 1200lbs of horse hoof in the face. The mud was nasty but I can live with it.
