A four-year old boy was brought to the hospital after being kicked in the head by a horse.
According to the Mower County Sheriff's Office, around 8:30 pm, Grand Meadow Ambulance arrived at the 27000 block of 790th Avenue, in rural Racine, to bring the small child to the St. Mary's Campus.
The boy had a laceration to the head consistent with the print of a horse's hoof.
The boy's father told us he was released from the hospital about 3 a.m. and is home recovering.
Reflecting on what happened... the boy's dad noted "you never know what an animal might do."
