Well today was an interesting one... was asked to see a horse that reacts violently to being girthed. Having examined it uneventfully I stood back in the doorway to let the owner in with the saddle. She started to tack up and... BOOM! Off it went around the stable, firing from both barrels. I was glad I stood where I was and edged myself further away, but it occurred to me that I almost stood in the stable without giving it a second thought - I really ought to pay more attention to staying out of harms way rather than leaving it to good luck!
