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 neverĀ  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.
