Another Boo Boo!
I got another injury to my face. The same side as my torn eyelid. You can tell I am left handed as I injure the left side of my face most often.
If I were a child there would be someone to kiss it better. As a single parent, certainly did my share of magical comfort kissing. Now I just have to tough it out, alas!
My sow Ruby did this to me. I was trying to cox the last of my boar piglets, Nuts, (June named him, tee, hee.) into a crate to I could transport him to his new owner. Ruby decided she wanted some of the feed I put inside. She put her nose under the edge and lifted the crate while my attention was on slamming the door shut. The corner caught me in the face and left a cut the shape of the corner. Oh! I have hurt myself!!! (almost enough to make me swear.)
Needless to say, I did not get Nuts crated up. I have been trying for a week to do so. I am trying to be smarter that a pig, so far he has managed to best me and push his way out before I can get the door closed. I will try again today.
No matter how familiar and calm you and your pet are, when they are big and powerful there is always a risk of them hurting you just doing what they naturally do. A pigs snout is a formidable digging and lifting tool.
