When Denny was vet checked in October, the vet who looked at him told me that his teeth were okay, but would need to be floated in the spring/early summer to keep up his tooth work, but nothing needed to be done at the time.
So I had the dentist out today.
Did you know that horses' jaws are not supposed to lock? Denny's does.
Horses back molars are supposed to touch... Denny's didn't.
Horses teeth are not supposed to be razor sharp... Denny's were.
Horses teeth are not supposed to be angled... Denny's were.
Horses are supposed to be able to flex laterally very easily... Denny doesn't.
So, bottom line - get an EQUINE DENTIST to look at your horse's teeth, not a vet.
Denny should be able to start working properly now that his teeth are all perfected, thank goodness. I feel like the worst horsey mom in the world now :(
