Kaley Cuoco Shows The Scars from Her Horse Riding Accident on 'Late Show' (VIDEO)

Kaley Cuoco, 'Late Show with David Letterman'Sharp-eyed fans of 'The Big Bang Theory' may have noticed that Kaley Cuoco was absent from a couple of episodes this season, and largely immobile in several others. On 'Late Show' (Weeknights, 11:35PM on CBS), Cuoco shared with David Letterman what happened, and showed the scars to prove it.

She slipped off her horse, and then the horse "got a little trapped" and backed across her leg. "I actually thought he was walking on leaves," she said. "That's the way the sound of my leg was."

A scar on the side of her ankle represented where the bone came out, and there was another longer one down the front of her leg. "Now I have two metal bars in my leg, but the good thing about that is I know when it's going to rain," Cuoco laughed.

Letterman tried to deduce who was to blame for the accident, but Cuoco was insistent it wasn't the horse's fault. "This was a love of my life, this horse," she said. "I love this horse. It really wasn't his fault."

"Well, we did shoot him," she clarified after more pressing. "But it wasn't his fault."

Does that mean she can show off her scars and still say, "You should see the other guy?" It's sad that the horse had to be put down, but Cuoco is lucky she came out of it as well as she did.

Granted, this story is a couple of weeks old, but I'm wondering if anyone knows why the horse would be put down. I'm not very versed in equestrian matters, and if anyone could shed some light on why (conjecture or not) the horse was shot, I'd appreciate the information.

I don't think they really shot the horse. That was a joke.

It also looks like she has a permanent limp; at least it seems that way when she walks across the BBT set.
