Dear convert-me.com forum visitors,

Our forum has been available for many years. In September 2014 we decided to switch it to read-only mode. Month after month we saw less posts with questions and answers from real people and more spam posts. We were spending more and more resources cleaning the spam until there were less them 1 legitimate message per 100 spam posts. Then we decided it's time to stop.

All the posts in the forum will be available and searchable. We understand there are a lot of useful information and we aren't going to remove anything. As for the new questions, you can always ask them on convert-me.com FaceBook page

Thank you for being with us and sorry for any inconveniences this could caused.

i was trampled by a horse in the abdomen and am curious of the psi. the horse was approx 1000 lbs and in propulsion when he contacted my abdomen (i was on the ground at pt of impact). the hoof was about 3 1/2" across. there was serious internal damage. maybe it's the sick side of me that wants to find out a number to put on the feel of the foot going into my abdomen, maybe i'm just curious. any help would be great. :lol:

I doubt the pressure was uniform. However, the area of the hoof, assuming it is roughly circular, is about 10 square inches. P = F/A, so about 100 psi if all his weight was on one hoof. Half that, assuming two hooves on the ground (in motion) at a time might be a better assumption.
