Recovering from Spine Surgery: Patience required
What a bummer, but as you say, just a freaky accident that you could not have predicted. At least your head didn’t take it. Plus, a broken ankle/leg better than your neck or back….sigh. I try to be grateful for the “best” outcomes!

@wisco50 Thank you. It wasn't the horse's fault either because she was running from something she thought would eat her. Horses are prey animals and herd animals, so the herd will run first at the first sign of danger, and ask questions later. They really do amazing things by learning to trust their humans. I think she was developing that with me because when I was at her stall she put her nose against my face and her chin on my shoulder and was calm for a little bit.
