Trove Tuesday - Trouble with horses (1)

It seems horses have caused a little bit of trouble in my family. My grandfather Jim had an altercation with a horse when he was 23 years old.

WALLANGARRA - Kicked by Horse


Mr Jim Moore, eldest son of Mr and Mrs Knox Moore, of Wallangarra, was endeavouring to catch a horse, when the animal kicked him just above the eye, temporarily stunning him. After first aid had been rendered he was conveyed to  Tenterfield and admitted to the Torquay Private Hospital, where an operation was performed. His condition was not considered serious.


I wonder what the operation entailed? Did it require time in hospital? If so, how long was my grandmother home with a baby and a toddler?
