I have a broken nose. I also have a favorite goat, a doe named Vicki, named after my uncle. She and her sister, Tedi, were the first born on my place after the fire.

The other night I was milking. If a doe is still eating when I am done milking, I take them off the milk stand and hook them to one of the numerous places I put up lead ropes for the dries or milkers to eat.

I got Vicki down, dumped the grain in the bucket and hooked her. As I bent down to pick up the bucket, she jerked her head up,,,,,,right into my nose. I saw stars and heard/felt a big snap. That was my nose breaking. I could grab my nose and move it back and forth....at the base between my eyes.

Owwwwwwww.

Nothing, there is nothing they can really do, except maybe tape it. Sure don't want to run around work with a taped up nose, I'd be a target or sure. Lol

It's healed to the point where it is connected to my skull again, no more wobbling to and fro.

Well that is good news.  I hope it isn't too painful.
