Crash

/ posted in: Horses

I had a near disaster here yesterday. The horses went out and decided to roll. Spirit went down first. Prize then had to be like him and laid down perpendicular to him with her back about 6 inches from his tail. I knew this was bad but it seemed like it might be ok until Prize decided to roll all the way over. Luckily Spirit was about done and had his feet tucked up under him. Prize landed with her front feet on his left and her back feet on his right and her belly on his hips. I’ve never seen horses come up off the ground so fast in my life. Prize came up kicking her back legs at him like it was all his fault that she has no concept of spatial geometry. He seems none the worse for being landed on by 1000 lb horse.
