Me and Pilgrim went out to move some pairs around this morning, hardly got out of tyne yard and he picked up a hole at a fast trot… he skidded his face for quite a ways on the ground before he went down..slammed me pretty hard and rolled up on my leg.. I sure seen stars.. weird as he is real watch about holes in thew ground, heck, maybe he just stubbed a toe.. I managed to hold him with the get down in my belt… poor ol’ feller was plumb ashamed of himself.. he’d gotten a bunch of grass under his bosalita, he slid on his face so far… I finally quit seeing stars but was really hurting in my left shoulder.. I finally got back on, moved the cows thru’ the gate. reset gates and decided i better go get it checked out… came in and took a shower and Gramma hauled me to the clinic, bent but not broken.. I am eating pain pills, over the counter, they are helping.. got a branding tomorrow and I am sure me and Pilgrim will both be sore.. Cindy and a couple of grandkids went with me this evening and we tagged some calves, big stout buggers and they are barely licked off…

Wow! Glad you are just bruised a bit!
Poor Pilgram, know he’s gonna be sore too. Guessing he might like some limanent himself! Guessing that ground is still pretty cold and hard yet!
Have a good branding!
He came thru’ fine, I wasn’t as sore as i thought I’d be and no, the ground is not frozen, heck it looks like Ireland around here, all green grass and stuff. The branding went real well.
Sorry to hear about your nasty wreck. Ouch! Hope everything feels better soon for both of you.
Better today, tho’ still sore///
