Out of 7 Horses only one had problems, my little baby Belgian had to have them out at 3 years old

They can grow out too long and cause some discomfort when they have a bit in their mouth. A dentist or a floater will usually trim them down. Just got my boy's done.

What if they don't have a bit? Do they still have to be trimmed?

Our Belgian had hers removed because they were getting so bad that it made it difficult for her to eat.

Every Horse can be different, we never had nothing special done to our other Horses, just normal floating when they needed it, your Vet would be the best to advise you.

I had to have Topaz's filed down yesterday. The one I called for was broken, the other three needed some file work. One of them that I couldn't see well (because Topaz has only recently let me play with his mouth) was so long the doc took off 1/4th to 1/2 of it's starting size! The rest of topaz's teeth seem to line up better now, Doc thinks he'll gain more weight, take a bit better and maybe even just have a happier attitude.
