There HAS to be a word for this:
You know, when your horse has packed God an all his creatures/debris/crap into their hoof, so that as you are attempting to "pick" it out you end up with more of a hoof bomb than anything else?
Maybe it's because I'm meticulous, and I always flip the hoof pick around and pick toward my face/body, maybe it's because I'm clumsy as all get out. But regardless of the reason, every once in a while I get a face full of flinging shavings, manure and mud.
Yesterday was one of these days. P's hoof "pack" has increased substantially with her new shoes (those damn things offer all sorts of help in acquiring and keeping serious useless crap in her hooves). I also hate leaving anything in the hoof, so I carefully scrape the edge of the shoe, dig into her heel area to totally clean things out and finish with a nice brushing to get all the wet gunk off her frog and out of the creases....
BUT sometimes this routine results in a serious fling of crap (literally) up and toward my face. I'm pretty good at dodging it without dropping P's hoof and hiding... but last night I didn't dodge quick enough and managed to spray wet shaving in between my jacket and vest. (ew).
This happens to other people right? Please tell me this isn't my one unique super power.. I'd hate to waste it on explosive hoof picking. .
What is this called? I realized yesterday that it happens often enough I should have a term for it. Hell, my birthday only happens once a year and it has a name... this happens way more often than that.
Arrrrrgh. It's so damn gross.....
