...and my horse walks the other way.
I was leading Armani. He saw an irresistible patch of grass. I wasn't paying attention and got the rope around my hands. This is what happened: little rope-burns all over both hands.
They aren't too bad. But at the time it hurt badly enough that I thrust both hands into his slobbery water bucket to cool them. The little burns on my finger tips making typing challenging. Not to mention the embarrassment of making a "beginner" mistake. Now I know why they told me to always be careful with the lead rope in 4-H.
