Ok, I need to ask a question.

When moving large pieces of tree that have been cut up, not just logs but huge logs, in the Autumn and so clothes are well and truly on! Is it possible to get small half moon gouges in your shoulder? Lots of them. About 10, possibly more, possibly less. Just the one shoulder. Does this make sense?

My man came back from work with these very deep gouges in his shoulder. Last October. They were very much the same as finger nail gouges. They were so deep that there are a couple of scars left. He says it is from moving logs from the trees that the tree surgeons had cut down that day. He says they were big logs.

Can this/does this make sense?

I have done much woodcutting in my time. I have never had gouges like this. Not in such proliferation. Scratches yes. A gouges yes. Many? No. Though I have never shifted logs ALL day. I have done only enough for firewood. By I have done enough to last. Not just one day's worth.

This crap makes no sense to me.

Another general question to any man. Has anyone experienced such deep gouges, on just one shoulder, from a woman? Would you really allow a woman create such deep gouges in your shoulder knowing that in a few days you will be seen naked by your woman? I guess the answer to that is yes, if you don't care, if you got carried away and feel you can explain it away. But have you ever had such gouges in just one place?

He didn't have scratches all over his body. I am pretty positive.

To all who read this post. Thankyou. And which excuse makes sense/no sense?

how deep are these gouges?
They were fairly deep. Deep enough to stay for some time and leave a few scars. If they were nails they would have hurt!

I could see branches gouging you as a big limb comes down

front or back shoulder?
He wasn't cutting down the trees. He was just 'shifting the logs'. After they'd been felled and cut up.

They were in a small patch on the front of the round bit of the shoulder. Only the front. None on top of the shoulder.

Where the arm meets the shoulder. On the ball of the top. At the front.

then I think his story seems pretty plausible, again the alternative implies a fight

and the way you describe the gouges makes think it would have to have been a fight to be nail marks (deep enough to leave scars), passionate scratching isn't bloody
It wasn't bloody...though I saw them 2-4 days later. And just gouges. All little half moons. No scratches. All the shape of finger nails.

If they were love marks, they would be on both shoulders, no?
Yes, I would have thought so. And elsewhere. But if it was just moving logs, how does it gouges shapes like that?

If it was a fight then I don't see how they would all be in one patch on the shoulder? He would have nicks and cuts elsewhere?

I can see them coming from lifting logs on his shoulder. I've even had such one sided cuts from the shoulder staps of a heavy duffle or garment bag.
Only on the front of the shoulder. None on top whatsoever. I guess as your arm moves up to hold the log on your shoulder then that may be how it would catch the front of the shoulder...but to have none on top?
