Re: Accidents


I lived a charmed farmers life for almost 40 years, then the horse shoe fell outta my posterior. Almost decapitated, standing on the tail gate of a truck holding onto a pig box while backing up to a barn door. Someone yelled and saved my life.I ran into a cow with an ATV which catapulted me onto my belly and the bike landed on my back and stayed there. A 4yr old hostein bull rolled me around in a field for a while and eventually threw me over a fence, which was [sign in to see URL] that point it felt as though the horse shoe had somehow found its way back in there. Sorry about leaving out the gorry stuff but we've all been there done that. The next time round I'll be a gigalo.

Re: Accidents


Currently nursing a broken index finger and tendon and nerve damage to thumb. Cull cow had lost one of her tags, had to replace it before she went for slaughter. Haltered rather than cattle crush as tractor to put crush into loose yard had broken down. Just as I went for the release knot to let her go after tagging her, she struggled and squashed her full weight onto her neck crushing my hand against the gate. Bloomin' red tape!

Re:


Few stitches, from accidents and bad tempers
Nerve pain in my back for about 10 years now
Shoulders knot very easily
Few concussions, one was from a top link on the back end of a tractor falling on me while I was attaching a pto shaft
Had a knee swollen the size of 3 knees, a sprained ankle and lost some skin off my wee finger, when I stuck a motorbike in a hedge at 90mph... I was on my way home to milk on a Sunday evening and was late.
Had a cow put me to the ground after she calved, my head and shoulders hit a wall, then she put her head behind my feet and tried to fold me closed like a book... didn't help my back at all
Tore my shoulder this summer when a wheel came off a tractor and I had to make yet another whole in a hedge to avoid on coming cars... A word of warning, when you read the safety sticker inside a tractor saying in case of overturn grab steering wheel firmly has obviously never crashed one... It was like pro bull riding! Don't think I stayed on for the full 8 seconds tho

Re:


A few weeks ago a cow slammed her crown of her head into a concrete [sign in to see URL] my hand in between and slid it down. She tore the skin from where my pinkie attaches to the hand nearly to the tip of the [sign in to see URL] about a quarter of an inch wide. Skin is healed now but mobility is still reduced as I had to have the finger immobilized for a couple of weeks. Still have lots of soreness in the finger

Re:


As of yesterday I can now add, being hit from behind at approximately 50 mph by a car as I was turning the tractor and fertiliser sower into a field. Sower twisted, stabiliser arm snapped off the tractor, tractor was up on two wheels so bad about 200kg of fertiliser flew out of it, car wrote off I'd say, very stiff and sore today and 2 bumps on my head, 1 where I hit the side window, the other where the cb radio flew out of the upper consoled and hit me. Car driver ok.
