I've been kicked in the back of the leg, which sent me sliding across the ground. Kicked in the hand, and three fingers turned completely black for weeks. A colt bit me on the shoulder when I was kneeling to check his moms hoof. He was playing. It hurt anyway..I had a herd sour mare try to scrape me off by running into the stable. And once, a plastic bag blown by the wind touched a green broke stallion on the withers and he proceded to go warp 9 around my field until he tired, at which point I got off and walked him back to the round pen. @Shampain ...get a four wheeler brother. Horses are assholes.

Mine is always underground. Is that the Vietnam Tiger?
Yeah, I believe so. I kept a ‘Vietnamese Earth Tiger’ - as sold by a pet store, years ago. I identified it as Haplopelma vonwirthi at the time, which then became Cyriopagapus vonwirthi I believe, and is now considered a regional colour variant of Cyriopagapus minax if I understand correctly. Lovely spiders, mine was stunning!



(Temporary housing I used to transport it home from the pet store)
