Over the years it has been a source of wonder to me how horses can always manage to find the one thing in their world that can cause them to hurt themselves.
But I have to confess, up until this happened to me 20 years ago, I had never thought that wheelbarrows posed a danger. Mountie, an old school horse we had, proved me wrong and thanks to him, we have a simple solution so that it never happens again.

One of my favorite barn rules!!
Anytime I drive past a farm with a wheelbarrow just sitting in a field, it drives me nuts! I think I always say something out loud to whoever is in the car with me!
LOL. I can hear you doing that….
Excellent video on barn safety! I hate to admit it, but I have walked into one of those wheelbarrows, caught between the handles and looking like a fool! If it’s not that, I’ve stepped on a push broom facing the wrong way and getting bonked in the head! If this was a horse, imagine how spooked he would get and how possibly dangerous it could be for the handler.
Oh ya, welcome back Pat!! Reality of winter now sets in!! LOL!!
Thanks for the welcome back Linda….that heat and sunshine sure looks good now!
A good rule of thumb….if it can happen….it WILL!
That is a great rule to live by Judith!
