Speed and carelessness don't mix
I was working on my dads farm forking silage in for the cows using a T handled manure fork, while rushing to get it done, I managed to spear my own foot with the prong, passing through the welly, through my big toe and inbed itself in the sole of the boot.

Pulling that out was painfull enough, as was the sensation of a welly filling with blood, and the resulting trip to get a tenus booster wasn't much fun either.

I do however follow in my fathers footsteps, he once tried to kick his sister when they were on the farm as children, sadly failing to notice she was holding a similarly sharp fork. through his foot too.

I've seen a couple of silage+fork injuries that have led to loss of an entire leg due to gas gangrene!

Guess I got off lucky with a tetnus to the bum and a sore toe!

They should put warnings on those things about how sharp they are!

I almost did the same thing once
but fortunately the tine of the fork went in between my toes and only caught a little bit of skin. Went right through my shoe though!

A lot can be said for the use of steel toecapped wellys!
