Got a new boot to wear for the next 6-8 weeks. Yesterday afternoon I was mowing the yard on my JD Zero Turn mower. At the end of my drive is a set of double metal gates, tied back to the fences when not in use. I bumped one of the gates with the front of the mower, like I've done every time I've mowed since I've had the mower, 4-5 years. Instead of the gate pushing back so I could mow under it, it popped straight up, just enough for the mower to run under it. The gate came down on top of my foot while at the same time the latch chain on the gate went under the front of the mower and into a 1/4" gap in the plate on the deck, pinning the gate to my foot. When I finally got the mower stopped I couldn't get my foot out from under it. To put it mildly, I was in distress. I finally managed to work a T-Post out of the ground and when I got it under the gate to pick it up off my foot it picked the mower up to, because of the chain. To unhook the chain the gate had to lower 4 inches to reach the bottom of the mower, trouble was my foot was under it. I got the post between the deck and the gate and as the post started bending, I got enough wiggle room to jerk my foot out, took some hide, but it was coming out. Probably lasted somewhere between 3 or 4 minutes, but I could have swore, I did swore, it was 45 minutes. When my foot came out from under the gate it slammed into the deck and cut the rubber floor mat. I had to get bolt cutters to get the chain off the mower and the gate free. Ended up with the little toe broke, next toe to it bruised and cut up, both swelled up and several shades of purple that I haven't seen since my wreck back in 2016. I hurt like the dickens while it was happening, then went numb about the time I jerked it out. Feeling still hasn't come back in it completely, but the Nurse Practitioner I saw assured me it would.
