thanks, I was right even when I though I was wrong...I had a picture come into my head of what I though a cows hoof was like, I think the brain gave me a picture of a horses hoof. Time for a cup of coffee to wake me up...:O)

We had a cow on the farm, she ended up being tasty. One day I called her into the barn for her daily bucket of grain and hubby went around her with our hand sprayer to keep those horrid horse flys off her and when he got to her back end, she slightly shifted her weight and landed on his foot...I didn't know a man could scream that good, but with her head in the grain bucked, he couldn't push a 1500 pound cow off his foot....I had to back off with the grain to get his foot free, but he was lucky, that barn had a dirt floor, the other big barn had cement floor, it use to be at some time in its past a barn for milking cows...now that would have crushed his foot...

Lots of farmers get hurt on the job, usually its with equipment, and sometimes a hungry cow named Spot...

I had a horse when I was a teenager and I rode Sugarfoot all over what is now densely populated west Houston. Back then it was unfenced fields and rice fields. Sugarfoot stepped on my bare foot one time and I was crippled for a week or longer.
